We are excited to announce that ISA’s Midwestern Chapter (MW-ISA) and the Iowa Arborist Association (IAA) have aligned through a mutual agreement and completed a transition plan for IAA to become an ISA Associate Organization (AO). IAA will formally become an ISA Associate Organization, effective January 1, 2017.
Are you interested in serving on the Board of Directors for the IAA? We have elections coming up in February at our annual meeting at the ISU Shade Tree Short Course. With the IAA leaving the MW Chapter of the ISA and becoming an Associate Organization, now is a great time to serve!!
The positions that are up for election are:
President Elect - Todd Fagan
SW Representative - Bob Koczela
NE Representative - Mike Cimprich
Representative at Large #1 - Brandt Jelken
If you’re interested in running, please submit a photo of yourself and short bio to the email@example.com
March 30th, 2017 - 8:00 am to 3:15 pm in Marion, Iowa
This one-day workshop is derived from the Wildland Fire Operations Training and designed to focus on chainsaw use. Instruction will be led by Ryan Schlater of the Iowa DNR and include in-class instruction and hands-on field experience with safe chainsaw operation, ground handling and tree felling cuts and techniques. Whether you have been running a saw for years or just learning to cut, this course will cover the primary knowledge and skill points to keep your crew working safely and serve as a great refresher.
We would like to thank the following Companies for their donations in supporting IAA.
