The Forest Products Society is an international not-for-profit technical association founded in 1947 to provide an information network for all segments of the forest products industry — from standing tree to finished product.

FPS supports members through invaluable opportunities, creates industry-leading resources, and advocates for the profession on behalf of all forest products professionals.

No matter where you are in your career — a student, recent graduate, seasoned professional — there's an FPS membership level for you. Join now to take advantage of exclusive member benefits today.  All Members are now eligible for special discounts through our new affinity programs - Learn More.

* Please note that the complimentary electronic journal subscriptions for Organizational Members are complimentary to the Organizational Representatives assigned to individual memberships and not the organization as a whole.
