WPAC Conference & AGM 2021 – Day 1
September 20, 2021 at
Responsible, Renewable, Clean Energy
Due to COVID-19 we are holding this year’s WPAC Conference and AGM as an on-line event. Hopefully by next year we will be able to hold a physical event again so that we can reconnect face to face and enjoy all the social activities that are traditionally part of our conference.
This year, together with our media partner, Canadian Biomass Magazine, we have put together a condensed program to take place in short bursts over three days from September 20 to 22, 2021. The live conference will take place over three hours on September 20; the AGM – open to all WPAC members – will be on September 21 for one and a half hours; and there will be a board meeting for one and a half hours on September 22. In addition, we have loads of pre-recorded presentations available for conference registrants.
Although our live conference program is only three hours – including a break at the halfway point – we will still able to pack in a lot of information. We will cover global and domestic pellet markets, WPAC’s new sustainability messaging initiative, recommendations for policy changes to improve domestic wood pellet consumption, progress on reforming Canadian biomass boiler pressure regulations, and making our industry safer by implementing critical control management. We will leave plenty of time for questions and answers after each presentation.
This year we are not charging a fee to participate. We only ask that participants register to access our amazing content. Although costs are lower than normal, we will still incur expenses, so we are most grateful for our sponsors who are making this event possible.
I invite you all to join us and I look forward to an excellent event!
All the best,
Gordon Murray, Executive Director, Wood Pellet Association of Canada
