We have some news at ATIBT following our meetings in Nantes


On Tuesday, Mai 29th, ATIBT held three meetings at the Ecole Supérieure du Bois (ESB):

  • 2nd meeting of the year of the marketing commission
  • Board meeting
  • General Ordinary assembly

We express our sincere thanks to ESB, which once again allowed us to gather our members in Nantes, while many of them were present for the Carrefour du Bois.

During the General Assembly, the budget, the technical activities carried out during the year 2017 (expertise, training, tests, standards, CITES discussions, SATA …), the progress of the various projects supported by the donors and led by the team (Marketing Project and Fair & Precious brand, P3FAC, FLEGT and REDD, LKTS 2020 …) and the 2018 outlook were presented.

New editions of our activity report and membership directory have been distributed. 

And do not hesitate to ask us a copy if you still don’t have it. We will also have some copies at Racewood and Gabon WoodShow from June 20th.

Several changes in the governance

The Board of Directors welcomes two new members, who were ATIBT members:

  • Stéphane RIVAIN, from Oréade-Brèche (France)
  • Peter LATHAM, from James Latham PLC (United Kingdom)



Our treasurer changes, since Michel ROUGERON, from SCBT (Société de Commercialisation des Bois Tropicaux), replaces Francis ROUGIER.

Francis Rougier has been in this position for many years and the ROUGIER group has always been very involved in the evolution of the Association.

At our General Assembly, we took the time to salute his faithful support. Francis Rougier will remain committed to the life and direction of ATIBT by remaining a member of our Board of Directors.
