The mission of TFG Companies is to expand opportunities for the timber frame industry, its businesses, and its craftsmen, and to provide education, resources, and networking for our member companies.
Craft, and the craft of business, are deeply intertwined. Our goal is to build a vital timber frame community with a strong market where all can thrive. Well-run companies are the key to a prosperous industry. Joining TFC Companies is also an avenue for input and participation in the direction and activities of the Timber Framers Guild.
TFG assists Guild Companies by:
- conducting an annual Business Boot Camp - two days of intense business learning at the TFG conference.
- providing a library of sample business documents.
- creating public outreach programs designed to increase awareness: we tell the story of timber framing and member companies.
- supporting and promoting TFG Community Building Projects.
- supporting the TFG Apprentice Training Program.
- conducting our American Institute of Architects Speakers Bureau program that delivers continuing education units to architects.
