“Ted Talk” about Real American Hardwood (Editorial)
by Ray Moistner, Executive Director
Indiana Hardwood Lumbermen’s Association
“Every man owes a part of his time and money to the business or industry in which he is engaged. No man has the moral right to withhold his support from an organization that is striving to improve conditions within his sphere.” – Teddy Roosevelt
For the last twenty plus years, I have had the extraordinary privilege to work with the most genuine group of people on the planet. My association career began working for home builders, a collection of the confident and bold risk takers, whose personalities often mirrored the types of homes they built.
From there, I spent ten years representing building material retailers, most of them honest, but all very guarded in revealing too much about themselves (politically or socially), for fear they may alienate a subset of potential customers.
