FRA’s Appalachian Region, managed by Rick Meyer, serves FRA members throughout the stretch of mountainous area bordered by Pennsylvania, Missouri, Tennessee, and western North Carolina. It focuses on improving timber harvesting and transportation safety, efficiency, and environmental performance. Trucking safety and logging and trucking labor challenges are current issues of concern. The Region conducts a two-day Annual Meeting in the fall.
