AWC Names Jackson Morrill President/CEO

Jackson Morrill, president of the Composite Panel Assn. since 2015, is resigning from that position and will become president and CEO of American Wood Council effective in mid-September.

AWC contributes to the development of public policies, codes and regulations which allow for the responsible manufacture and use of wood products. It has been out front in recent years in its support of mass timber construction.

Prior to his work at CPA, Morrill was director at American Chemistry Council and he practiced environmental law with a DC-based firm. Morrill graduated from Tulane University School of Law and gained a bachelor of arts from the University of Virginia.

AWC was re-chartered in 2010 and has links to the old National Forest Products Assn. The AWC web sites lists approximately 50 member companies, most of them primary manufacturers of lumber and panel products.
