The increase in product demand, supply chain disruptions, and record-high pricing have created new business challenges for many retail lumber dealers. To help provide answers to some of the question’s dealers have about the market activities and supply outlook for lumber and building materials our association partner, Northwestern Lumber Association, is launching a new webinar series called - LBM Market Watch.   

 The series will consist of quarterly online conversations with supplier representatives who will answer questions posed by facilitator, Craig Webb of Webb Analytics. Panelists will not only be asked about supply trends, they will also be asked to provide some strategic planning ideas to help dealers and their customers better prepare for upcoming projects and take advantage of opportunities in the market.  Attendees will be able to ask panelists questions using the Q&A feature on the platform.

Webinars are scheduled from 2 pm - 3:30 pm CST on:

Thursday, July 8th 

Webinar panelists include

  • Chris Leonard, Vice President of Supply Chain Planning & Operations for GAF
  • Russ Kathrein, Vice President of Lumber & Building Materials for Do it Best Wholesale
