About Hoo-Hoo Club #48

HooHoo Charter 1951

We are the Vancouver Chapter of the International Concatenated Order of Hoo-Hoo!


The International Concatenated Order of Hoo-Hoo is one of the world's oldest service organizations, having been organized in 1892. That is has survived all these years is due to the fact that its members are interested in the welfare and promotion of the lumber industry.

Hoo-Hoo is a fraternal order of people with an industry base. It was founded on the belief that personal contact is important in industry and in social relationships, to communicate better and to build trust between people in all parts of the industry.

Hoo-Hoo, as we are commonly known, has fun with unusual names and titles. Fortunately, what we are called is less important than what we are – an organization of individuals dedicated to the ideals of a united and progressive forest-based industry, contributing to the welfare of the community.

Hoo-Hoo seeks to instill a desire to make a sincere contribution to the industry and society through fraternal participation in its business, social and community programs. Members believe in the multiple use of forests in which there is a place for all, so that industry and the whole community can share in this great renewable resource today and for generations to come.

Membership is drawn by invitation from all aspects of the forest products industry. It includes people from forestry, saw milling, research, education, manufacturing, and marketing of all wood-based products, and includes all who derive their main livelihood from the industry.

The Club #48 board and club members work to promote camaraderie and networking within our membership, and raise funds and awareness for our key charities. These include Evans Lake Forestry Camp and the Festival of Forestry.
