This year marked the 70th Anniversary of the Western Red Cedar Lumber Association, aka WRCLA/Real Cedar, established in 1954. That milestone was celebrated by the more than 180 attendees, including delegate members and Cedar School students who recently joined in beautiful Whistler, BC, to celebrate and participate in the annual WRCLA Cedar Summit.

This year’s Cedar Summit agenda included a series of events, such as a golf tournament, a business session with keynote speakers, the Annual General Meeting and Board of Directors Meetings, and of course lots of networking opportunities.

Brad Kirkbride, managing director of the WRCLA, said, “We are grateful for record attendance of delegates and students for the 2024 WRCLA Cedar Summit and Cedar School in beautiful Whistler. This event celebrated the most versatile and environmentally friendly building product on earth – Western Red Cedar – and planned future initiatives to promote Cedar and its competitive advantages over non-wood substitutes.”
