CLMA Issues 2016 Annual Report of Accomplishments

WASHINGTON, DC (December 13, 2016) – The Composite Lumber Manufacturers Association (CLMA) recently released its 2016 Annual Report. The report highlights the association’s strategic objectives, mission, and accomplishments in 2016. CLMA is the leading advocate for the composite lumber industry, and represents the industry’s manufacturers and suppliers to the residential and commercial building construction markets.

In the report, CLMA highlighted the successes of its codes and standards advocacy, communications initiatives, industry collaboration, membership recruitment, and meetings.

CLMA met its objective to enhance its communications by redesigning its website, creating a promotional Associate Member E-Blast program, and developing three technical bulletins, three newsletters, and two press releases.

As the industry’s technical and educational resource, CLMA participated heavily in building codes and standards development. CLMA worked diligently to advance code proposals and public comments at the International Code Council (ICC). CLMA also advocated at the state and local level, working with the California Office of the State Fire Marshall to develop recommended updates to the state’s wildland urban interface requirements.

The CLMA 2016 Annual Meeting was very well attended, and provided valuable educational and networking programming for attendees in the wood plastic composite industry. The meeting also featured a comprehensive tour of the facilities and research programs of the Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, Wisconsin.
