As a chamber-balanced, member-led democracy, FSC convenes a General Assembly every three years to debate and vote on motions that guide the organization. For FSC members, the General Assembly is a chance to shape the FSC system around the world, and to connect with other leaders working to promote responsible forest management. More directly, the General Assembly results in many decisions that affect implementation of FSC standards for companies and forests around the world.  

FSC-US encourages all US-based members to attend the General Assembly. All certified companies should consider becoming members of FSC to ensure their perspectives are represented at the General Assembly.

FSC International recently launched a new website for the General Assembly, with information about motions, the event  and other details.  Members who are interested in submitting motions for consideration must do so by March 7, 2014.  

If you have questions about the General Assembly or want to get involved, please contact Gary Dodge (
