Major events in its history include hosting in 1992 the annual meeting of the National Christmas Tree Association in Spokane, WA, the incorporation in 2004 of the Montana Christmas Tree Association, and the election of one of its members, Marvin Kaschke of Polson, Montana as Director of the National Christmas Tree Association (NCTA).
