Jean Henning, Membership & Events Director

After 27+ years of service, Jean Henning is moving on to work for her family business full time.
Jean has been a lumber industry icon of sorts, instrumental in putting together our industry events since 1995 when she came onboard to the Lumber Merchants Association (LMA), which then became the Lumber Association of California & Nevada (LACN), then becoming the West Coast Lumber & Building Material Association (WCLBMA).
Any Lumber Association event you have attended in the last 27 years was likely planned and executed by Jean. Her friendship and leadership will be missed tremendously.
While someone like Jean cannot be replaced, the search is on for our next events coordinator.
In the meantime, please join us in thanking Jean for her many years of service and offering our best wishes to her in all her future endeavors.
