Taking Success to the Next Level – An Introduction to The National Woods Board

Thomas Allott

One of the many hats Thomas Allott wears as the manager for Stiles University (the training arm of Stiles Machinery) is chairman for the National Woods Board. The NWB is a relatively new organization inspired by the MiLL National Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO, which teaches woodworking students everything from fundamentals to advanced production using high-tech machinery. Ultimately, the vision of the NWB is to bridge the gap between education and the trades by creating advanced career opportunities that fulfill the industry’s massive workforce needs. Join us in this session to learn more about the National Woods Board, how it is helping the industry, and how you can be involved.


This session is FREE to all AWFS Fair attendees and exhibitors, no additional session registration required.
