IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE ATPA/ARK PRO LOGGER PROGRAM – TRAINING POSTPONED
In recent days, as information is constantly changing, COVID-19 has spread rapidly. These new developments are having an impact on the way we live. COVID 19 is a significant threat to some members of our forestry community who are seniors and those who struggle with health issues. The impact is difficult to measure at this point because of the lack of current testing.
The Arkansas Timber Producers Association will be joining National, State, and local organizations in practicing “social distancing”. As part of the forestry family, we want to do our part to protect the people who attend the (ATPA) Logger Training.
In conforming with social distancing as an effort to flatten the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are postponing the Arkansas Timber Producers Association (ATPA) Logger trainings effective immediately. Our decision has not been motivated by fear, but by prayerful deliberation, interaction with other leaders in the Forestry community, and medical professionals. All of our decisions have been unanimous. The ATPA will continue to monitor the situation and will keep you informed via our web page weekly as the situation changes.
We are thankful that the COVIV-19 issue is being addressed and yet the full picture has not yet emerged. Let’s all be in prayer for our community, leadership, and especially those who are most impacted by this ever-changing situation (at risk populations, health care workers, first responders, and many others).
On behalf of ATPA,
- Director of Logger Education

This workshop provides attendees with up-to-date information and training related to Best Management Practices (BMPs) and a Safety Update. It is considered a Core Module (though can be taken as Logger Continuing Education as well), and is open to contractors and crew members alike, as well as forestry professionals.
