The Gottstein Trust is pleased to announce the launch of its new look website and the refined focus of the Trust’s activities. Brian Farmer, Chairman of the Gottstein Trust, says “The Gottstein Trust has served the forest and wood products industry well for the last 40 years, and now it is time to refine some of the activities. Being the national education trust for the forest and wood products industries the Trust deserves a modern and functional website to better inform viewers of what the Trust does, and what it has achieved since its inception.
Over the past 6 months the Secretary to the Trust, Silvia Pongracic, has liaised with the website developer to enable on-line applications for awards and for the wood and forestry science courses run by the Gottstein Trust.
With the industry survey undertaken in December 2013, the Gottstein Trust was encouraged by the level of recognition in the industry and also the level of support provided by industry participants. “The Gottstein Trust cannot continue it’s activities without the annual donations provided by many companies,” explained Brian Farmer, “and we had to make sure that we were still relevant to the industry of 2014. We received many good suggestions from the industry survey and seek to do a follow-up in two years time to see whether we have changed in a way that better suits our industry.”
