ATC 2017 and 2018 Announcements

2017 Conference Theme To Be Determined!

The conference planning committee for the 38th Annual Training Conference is off and running. The group has met several times already to iron out volunteer roles and brainstorm about the conference theme and potential speakers.

The conference will be held at the Lynnwood Convention Center in Lynnwood, WA. Attendees can expect a Tree Academy (or Academies), Field Day, and indoor sessions for every discipline.

Mark your calendars for September 24-27, 2017. We expect to hold the Chapter Tree Climbing Championship during the conference as well.

And Looking Ahead to 2018 ...

The PNW-ISA is excited to announce that the 2018 Annual Training Conference will be held in Vancouver, BC in conjunction with the Canadian Urban Forest Conference (CUFC) and Urban Tree Diversity 3 (UTD3).

CUFC brings together leading experts from across the country, allowing for dialogue between professionals, community groups, and practitioners on innovative strategies, policies, technologies, research, and best management practices related to arboriculture and urban forestry.

UTD3 is an international conference that addresses research on urban tree diversity and its crucial implications for urban foresters and society in achieving resilient, vibrant, and productive urban forests.

The PNW-ISA will be working with CUFC and UTD3 to offer a unique conference, bringing together international, national, and regional speakers related to arboriculture and urban forestry.
