Nominations open for 2020 SWC Forestry Awards

Friday 31 Jan 2020

In May of last year, the Southern Wood Council (SWC) in conjunction with New Zealand’s Industry Training Organisation, Competenz, built again on the regions forestry industry awards programme. Each year, it continues to grow.

The event and the response from the local industry from throughout the lower South Island of New Zealand was outstanding. Around 350 people attended. The evening saw forestry companies, contractors and transport operators from throughout the lower South Island along with their crews and families attending. It’s was again the largest industry gathering seen in 2019 for the region.

For the forestry industry in Otago and Southland, the Awards Programme provides a unique opportunity for those involved in training, in growing, processing and transporting wood and for those who support the industry through the provision of products and services.

It’s a once in a year opportunity to come together to celebrate success. It’s the industry’s chance to recognise those who had achieved formal training qualifications over the year, to celebrate through a series of nine major industry awards, the top performers from across the lower South Island and to profile the real contribution that forestry and those working within the industry are making to the economic and social well-being of this region.

The 2020 SWC Forestry Awards Programme run in conjunction with Competenz will run this year at the Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin on the evening of Friday 13 May. Details on each of the main awards and nomination forms for this year’s awards are being distributed as part of SafeStart meetings being run throughout the region by the forestry industry at the beginning of the year and through on-site visits being planned to forestry crews and wood processing operations over the next month or so.

For those in the South, mark the dates into your diary. Nominations close on Friday 13 March 2020. Start to give some thought as to who you can nominate in your or someone else’s company or crew. Who’s made a difference? Who’s really stood out this year? Who deserves to be recognised for their efforts?
