Administrative history

The Plywood Manufacturers Association of British Columbia was created in 1950 and was located in Vancouver. The PMBC’s main objectives included the promotion and marketing of “Exterior-types Waterproof Glue Plywood” and plywood products through advertising trade extension and research, the gathering and dissemination of information relating to the plywood industry, the promotion of favourable legislation, and the establishment of grading rules. The PMBC’s structure included a Board of Directors, executive officers and several standing committees appointed by the Board of Directors and formed to help the organization carry out its functions and activities. These committees included: Finance, Advertising, Filed Promotion, Technical, Railway Rates, Grading, Public Relations, United Kingdom policy, and door committees. In 1963 the PMBC’s constitution was amended reducing the number of committees to four: finance, trade promotion, technical and grading committees.
The PMBC also maintained a laboratory as part of its technical development activities in North Vancouver from 1962 until the Council of Forest Industries overtook this responsibility around 1970.
In 1966 the PMBC amalgamated with COFI and became part of its divisional structure.
