The Lumbermen’s Association of Texas (LAT) announced that Time Moore, general counsel at Cassity Jones Building Materials and co-chair of LAT’s legislative committee, is its 2020 Texas Unity Dinner honoree.

“Deep legal expertise and a fierce commitment to ensuring Texas dealers are represented at the Texas Capitol are hallmarks of our 2020 Texas Unity Dinner honoree,” Greg Evans, president of the LAT board of directors and owner at Waco, Texas-based Redwoods, said in a news release. “We are thrilled with the LUMPAC trustees’ unanimous choice of Tim Moore and look forward to celebrating his accomplishments with the LAT membership this fall.”

LUMPAC, LAT’s state political action committee, supports political candidates who are key to the success of LAT’s state policy agenda. The 2020 Texas Unity Dinner, a LUMPAC fundraiser event, will take place on October 21 in Waco, Texas.

“I am very appreciative of being chosen as the Texas Unity Dinner honoree,” Moore said. “It is a privilege to be part of such a highly-committed membership that collectively and continuously seeks to fulfill the mission of the LAT and of LUMPAC.”

Meagan McCoy-Jones, co-chair of LAT’s legislative committee and president and COO at McCoy’s Building Supply, said Moore has examined thousands of pages of legislation, testified before legislators, and spent “countless hours providing sage advice that has served each and every one of our businesses.”

Founded in 1886, the LAT is a non-profit trade association based in Austin, Texas, that represents lumber and building material dealers.
