Two weeks ago, we held our 2023 Annual Meeting in Clearwater, Florida. It was fantastic seeing many long-term and new members and hearing from expert speakers on issues key to our industry, including trade policy, new technology, and methods to identify Russian birch—which continues to fund the Russian war effort, despite restrictions.

Recent trade rulings dominate our top stories in this issue. Last week, the U.S. Department of Commerce issued affirmative determinations in the sunset reviews for both the antidumping and countervailing duties on hardwood plywood and multilayered wood flooring from China.
