November 18, 2012, Prince George, BC - According to the Wood Pellet Association of Canada (WPAC) executive director Gordon Murray, the 2012 Annual General Meeting is sold out. Slated for Quebec City November 27-28, the gathering includes presentations on a wide range of topics.

"I'm very happy with the response. We'll look at a similar format for future meetings as clearly the interest is there" Murray says. He adds that he continues to receive inquiries about the Quebec event despite having no room left. "I guess I should have booked a larger room for the event, but it's the first such venture for us. We'll know for the next one."
