Now more than ever, we must gather the resources necessary to educate a new generation of public officials on the importance of our industry, our products, our people, and our forest resource to the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The Virginia Forest Resources Political Action Committee (VAForestPAC) is critical to these efforts. VAForestPAC was created to support candidates for elected statewide office who demonstrate understanding and leadership on issues favoring Virginia's diverse forestry community, namely: promoting the sustainable use and conservation of forest resources to ensure their long-term benefits for all Virginians.

Candidates supported by VAForestPAC must value the conservation and sustainable use of forest resources as a driver of ecological, economic, and social prosperity in Virginia. They must further commit to maintaining a climate favorable for forest ownership and the forest industry in the state.

Whether you are involved in timber management, harvesting, wood products manufacturing, conservation or another forestry-related practice, legislation that affects forestry can have a huge influence on what you do and how you do it. VAForestPAC is a non-partisan state PAC that can accept contributions from any U.S. individual, corporation, union, association, or partnership.
