Welcome, new executive director
The TFG board of directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Jeff Arvin as our new Executive Director. Jeff’s experience, intelligence, knowledge, talents, skills, and keen sense of humor will make him a great match for the Guild.

Jeff, with wife Carol.

A native Hoosier and former educator, Jeff honed his timber framing skills at Riverbend Timber Framing, in Blissfield, Mich., in the shop and then teaching and managing workshops before starting and running Cascade Joinery in Bellingham, Wash., for 20 years. He was an early member of the Guild board and served as president for two years of his board tenure. He was a founder of the Business Council and its first board chair. He has been involved in many aspects of timber framing and the Guild. 
Welcome aboard, Jeff!
