The mission of the Certified Forester program is to serve as the competency and credentialing standard for foresters; recognize a forester's education, professional experience, and commitment to the ongoing pursuit of knowledge; promote continuing education in forestry and associated disciplines; and increase public awareness of the forestry professional.
The Foundation is being created to provide scholarships for forestry students and as a source of funds for other purposes related to forestry education. A gift of $4,500 was made to the WSSAF Executive Committee in 2002. Rather than using the funds as a resource for a one-time project, the Committee believes WSSAF will be better served by using the funds to establish a forestry education and information trust account.
The Executive committee meets approximately 8 times per year to discuss SAF happenings at the State level. If any of you have questions, ideas, suggestions, events, or anything else that you want to discuss, please let your Chapter Chair know so that they can bring it forward.
We are also available to answer questions at any time. If you need something, please let us know: we are here to serve you!
