From Professor Gene Wengert, forum technical advisor:
Drying associations provide a great way to transfer the latest technical information. Everyone that has a kiln, even a small one, should join as the dues are often just $15 per year. Here is a listing of the eastern U.S. groups. Please correct any incorrect info.
