As the 2019 Annual Conference fades into memory, we thank all who came and supported the association. If you were there, you know that this conference set yet another record for attendance, great student turnout, and a robust presence of exhibitors! The speaker lineup was a strong one, with varied programs that offered plentiful arborist, landscaper, and safety-specific credits. Another highlight was the awards ceremony. Congratulations to Richard Parasiliti, City of Northampton, who received the Tree Warden of the Year Award, and to Mollie Freilicher, Mass. DCR Urban & Community Forestry, who received the President’s Award for her initiative and major support to make the Qualified Tree Warden program become a reality in 2018. Stay tuned for photos!
The Annual Conference starts tomorrow, January 8 and continues on Wednesday, January 9. We’re all in Sturbridge getting ready, but you can still join us even though online registration is now closed. Just come to the registration desk, tell us you want to register, and bring your payment (check, credit card or PO #). The late registration fees are members $195 and non-members $215. Still not sure? Check out the 2019 Conference Program Book; the schedule of presentations is on pages 8-9. Hope to see you there!
