NHLA cancels annual convention

The National Hardwood Lumber Association canceled its 2020 annual Convention & Exhibit Showcase as a result of concerns and regulations surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The decision to cancel the in-person convention was a tough one, but a necessary one since state gathering restrictions and international travel restrictions made the event no longer viable. We are also comforted knowing our hardwood community is not being put in harm's way with the novel coronavirus, for that would be a burden we could not bear,” the NHLA said in a statement.
