The Aus­tralian For­est Con­trac­tors As­so­ci­a­tion (AFCA) has ap­pointed a new AUSTim­ber2020 Event Co­or­di­na­tor. Busi­ness part­ners Brooke Adams and Kris­ten Smith have been ap­pointed to the role of Event Co­or­di­na­tor. To­gether Brooke and Kris­ten will be re­spon­si­ble for the de­liv­ery of the big­gest forestry show in Aus­trala­sia, AUSTim­ber2020.

Brooke and Kris­ten have a com­bined 30 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in the events in­dus­try. Hav­ing each worked with sev­eral high-pro­file non­profit or­gan­i­sa­tions, they have ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence co­or­di­nat­ing a di­verse range of na­tional and in­ter­na­tional events.

Brooke and Kris­ten are pas­sion­ate about cre­at­ing a vi­brant and en­gag­ing pro­gram, bring­ing the forestry com­mu­nity to­gether and en­sur­ing the event has some­thing to of­fer all those in­ter­ested in the for­est in­dus­try.

“We are ex­cited to have en­gaged an ex­pe­ri­enced events team with great en­thu­si­asm and ideas and I look for­ward to work­ing with them to grow AUSTim­ber2020,” said Stacey Gar­diner, Gen­eral Man­ager, Aus­tralian For­est Con­trac­tors As­so­ci­a­tion.

“They have hit the ground run­ning and will be meet­ing with the AUSTim­ber Steer­ing Com­mit­tee shortly to share ideas and take plan­ning of the event for­ward.”

With the event only just over two years from now, an AUSTim­ber2020 Launch will be held next month. The Launch will be held on the Flynn Site in La­trobe Val­ley on Mon­day 26 March and Brooke and Kris­ten are fo­cus­ing their ini­tial en­ergy on fi­nal­is­ing ar­range­ments for this date.

They ex­pect to make fur­ther an­nounce­ments shortly de­tail­ing the Launch.
