Future of GA Forestry Committee Welcomes SPAN to Meeting
As mentioned in a previous Management Update Weekly newsletter, a joint Senate and House committee
was formed by GA Governor Sonny Perdue to explore ways to revive the state’s forest products industry. The
committee held it’s first meeting earlier this week in Valdosta, GA. Wendy Burnett of SLMA was invited to tell
committee members about the Southern Pine Awareness Network. “The committee was very interested in the
work SPAN is doing,” says Burnett. “They have asked for a progress report on our activities at the end of the
year and seemed interested in working with SPAN as part of their recommended solution.” SLMA will keep you
posted as developments with the committee occur.

2005 Conference Reminders
Just a few reminders as the date for SLMA’s 2005 Annual Conference draws near. Completed registration
forms can be faxed to (404) 361-5963 or mailed to P.O. Box 1788, Forest Park, GA 30298. If paying by credit
card, please write cardholder’s name as it appears on the card, card number, expiration date and billing address
anywhere on the registration form (there is no specific space for this info on the form). Online registration is also
available. If you’ve tried to log on to www.slma.org to register in the last few days, you probably were not able
to access the Members or Registration pages. SLMA’s web consultants are in the process of fixing this problem,
and we expect the site to be fully functional (with the ability to accept credit cards) by Monday morning, June
20th. Hotel registration forms should be faxed to the Park Hyatt directly at (970) 827-6793. Be sure to make
reservations by July 8th in order to receive SLMA’s discount room rate.
Please keep in mind that the Park Hyatt sits at an elevation of 8100 feet. Be aware that you may experience
what is commonly known as “Altitude Illness.” Altitude illness is the result of our bodies not adapting well to
having less oxygen at high altitudes. Symptoms include headache, loss of appetite, nausea, fatigue, lack of sleep
and dizziness. While altitude illness is not serious and lessens as your body adapts to the higher elevation, some
may be more comfortable talking to their doctors about taking the prescription drug Diamox (acetazolamide) to
reduce symptoms. Be sure to talk to your doctor prior to the conference if concerned.
