ONE: THURSDAY JANUARY 13LUNCHEON KEYNOTE SPEAKER:
Associated California Loggers is pleased to announce our guest speaker at the 2022 Annual Meeting of Associated California Loggers, for the closing “Thursday Luncheon Keynote Speaker” on Thursday January 13at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno:
Scott Dane, the “new” Executive Director of the American Loggers Council.
In June of 2021, after an extensive search across all logging states, Scott Dane was selected as the Executive Director of the American Loggers Council. Scott was selected in the wake of the 2021 retirement of previous Executive Director Danny Dructor, who served for 20 years in this position.
Prior to joining the American Loggers Council as Executive Director, Scott Dane served as the Executive Director of the Associated Contract Loggers & Truckers of Minnesota for 17 years, where he led the organization to become the largest logging and trucking trade association in Minnesota. Scott has been successful in state and federal timber industry legislation and was recognized for his work in 2010 as the FRA National Forestry Activist.
As a result of his work and representation with the logging industry Scott was selected to speak at the 2020 Republican National Convention where he brought the logging industry to the national stage.
President Trump appointed Scott to the President’s Export Council, where he will be an advisor regarding trade policy.
And, “from the other side of the aisle”: — One of Scott Dane’s first acts as Executive Director of the American Loggers Council was to meet with White House officials and to secure a letter of congratulations to, and cooperation with, the American Loggers Council from President Joe Biden.
