Webinar scheduled for public furniture project

The Public Furniture Research Project will host a webinar at noon EST on Feb. 26 to discuss how local governments and school districts buy furniture and furnishings in an effort to support the growth of sales of wood products by these public entities.

Twenty purchasing departments in West Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina were interviewed to learn what issues are important for buyers of public furniture and how the wood products industry can better serve this important market.

More information about the webinar can be found at www.cnr.ncsu.edu/publicfurniture. Webinars are interactive discussions with a PowerPoint slideshow and comments by moderators and participants. Participants can communicate via microphones and text chatting.

There is no charge to participate in the webinar. A recording of the webinar will be available on the project website after the webinar is completed.

The research project is sponsored by the Princeton Forestry Sciences Lab in Princeton, W.Va., and the Wood Products Extension Department at North Carolina State University.
