Continually evolving forest technology and eco-system management, changing regulations, policy initiatives and safety procedures, expanding markets and products, and a renaissance in jobs and new training opportunities are all reasons to come together to learn, discover and network at the Interior Logging Association’s annual conference and trade show. The event alternates venues each year to reach out to our association members and industry stakeholders throughout the southern Interior region. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet face to face, discuss current issues, learn about industry trends, see what’s new in machinery, kick some iron and explore new business ventures. We look forward to seeing you there.

The Log Harvesting Sector Benefits Plan provides Interior Logging Association and North West Loggers Association members, their employees, spouses and dependent children with protection for day-to-day health and dental expenses and in the event of a serious illness, accident or death.
Our Group Benefits are custom designed to meet the needs of the forest industry. They are cost effective for you because as a member of the ILA you benefit from the volume buying power of our association. Once you become an association member you are eligible to join the Group Benefits Plan.
Members choose the right level of coverage for you and your employees from four available packages. Each package offers different levels of coverage from the Economy package which provides the lowest level of coverage to the Deluxe package that includes a Pay Direct Drug card. If you have 10 or more employees, you can choose to custom design your own coverage to suit your needs.
No medical exams
You and your employees do not have to provide evidence of good health. Every eligible employee is automatically entitled to the coverage in the package you choose.
Claim premiums as a business expense
If your business is incorporated, you can use all benefit premiums as a deductible expense. A sole owner may be able to deduct part of the cost. Contact your accountant for more details.
