RESOURCE AVAILABILITY FUND

HELP ASSOCIATED CALIFORNIA LOGGERS FUND CONTRACT CONSULTANTS AND SPECIAL PROJECTS USING THE “RESOURCE AVAILABILITY FUND”  — YOUR DONATIONS ARE VOLUNTARY AND TAX DEDUCTIBLE (DETAILS BELOW)

In 2016, the Associated California Loggers Board of Directors approved a special fund to be created so as to fund “special projects” outside the ACL Budget.

Making the decision carefully after many meetings and discussion, the ACL Board of Directors has voted to:

  • CREATE THE “RESOURCE AVAILABILITY FUND”(RAF) TO ASSURE THAT ALL AVAILABLE TIMBER RESOURCES ARE BEING USED TO THEIR FULL POTENTIAL
  • CREATE A 7-MEMBER “BOARD OF GOVERNORS” APPOINTED FROM EACH ACTIVE ACL CHAPTER – PLUS THE ACL PRESIDENT -TO OVERSEE THE COLLECTION, TARGETING AND EXPENDITURE OF RAF FUNDS
  • ADMINISTER THE FUNDS UNDER A “FIVE YEAR PLAN,” WITH ONGOING REVIEW BY THE ACL BOARD OF DIRECTORS.
  • SPEND RAF FUNDS TO CONTRACT WITH A “COMMUNICATIONS SPECIALIST” WITH SKILLS TARGETED TOWARDS COMPUTER ENGINEERING AND/OR MASS COMMUNICATIONS (FACEBOOK, WEBSITE, ALL SOCIAL MEDIA AND COMMUNICATIONS)
  • SPEND RAF FUNDS TO CONTRACT WITH A TIMBER SPECIALIST TO WORK WITH USFS AND ELECTED OFFICIALS TO BRING TIMBER TO AVAILABILITY
  • SPEND RAF FUNDS TO CONTRACT WITH A “COUNTY/STATE ISSUES SPECIALIST” TO WORK DIRECTLY WITH ALL RURAL TIMBER COUNTIES AND THE STATE FOREST MANAGEMENT TASK FORCE ON ACL MEMBER PROJECTS.
  • MOVE CAREFULLY ON A YEAR-BY-YEAR BASIS, TO EXPAND CONTRACTS SO AS TO BE ABLE TO CONTRACT WITH A RETIRED US FOREST SERVICE OFFICIAL AND A FORMER COUNTY SUPERVISOR TO REPRESENT ACL DIRECTLY IN MEETINGS ABOUT FUNDING, PROJECTS, JOBS AND POLICY CHANGES THAT BENEFIT ACL MEMBERS.
