Members of the Southern Cypress Manufacturers Association (SCMA), along with SCMA promotion sponsors, recently gathered in West Palm Beach, Florida, for the SCMA’s 2021 Mid-Year Meeting. The event was held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in conjunction with the National Hardwood Lumber Association’s Annual Convention.  

In-person and virtual attendees discussed Association business matters, networked with industry colleagues and vendors, previewed new projects, and heard updates on the SCMA’s promotion activities. Here’s a quick recap.

Reaching Consumers

Today’s consumers are busy people and when they are looking for ideas or inspiration for their home improvement projects, they turn to the internet. As such, the SCMA focuses on producing written content that highlights the advantages of choosing Cypress. 

The SCMA’s latest editorial piece, titled Decking Out Your Outdoor Space, features interviews with design professionals and woodworkers who talk about how families are investing in extravagant exterior areas with high-quality furnishings and why they’re doing so with natural and durable materials like Cypress. 

The list-based article was distributed to newspapers and online news outlets across the country through NewsUSA, a leading content syndication network. To date, the article received 2,181 placements and reached a potential audience of more than 180 million readers. In addition, the article also has been shared across the SCMA’s social media platforms and featured on

Networking with the Industry

Later this month, the SCMA will exhibit at the North American Wholesale Lumber Association’s 2021 Traders Market at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, Kentucky, Thursday and Friday, November 11 and 12. The show will provide an excellent opportunity for SCMA representatives to network with industry colleagues up and down the lumber supply chain. If you’ll be at the show, stop by booth #1102 to say hello.
