Matt K. reported that he was notified by the SAF forester licensing subcommittee that they
will be sending a survey to the MA FLB and other states. We will get a copy of their report
when it is complete in the spring of 2007.

FLB discussed a request by a license holder to receive credits for a self guided forestry tour
through the south and western states. FLB determined that the only available category for an
unorganized field trip is Category 5 with a maximum annual credit limit of 4.
