News from ISA – Spring 2017

Visit Washington, DC for the ISA Annual International Conference

ISA is partnering with MAC-ISA (ISA Mid-Atlantic Chapter) to bring you the 2017 ISA Annual International Conference and Trade Show, July 29 – August 2 ... the premier event “where arboriculture meets.” Besides offering educational opportunities for professionals from all areas of arboriculture, this year’s event rejoins the International Tree Climbing Championship and the TREE Fund’s STIHL Tour des Trees.

The educational programming includes pre-conference workshops on the weekend, multiple educational sessions Monday through Wednesday, the trade show, and Climbers’ Corner demonstrations on the trade show floor. And the International Tree Climbing Championship will kick off the conference this year at the United States National Arboretum, July 28-30.

The host conference venue and hotel, Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, is located in National Harbor, Maryland, a spectacular waterfront resort with a stunning 19-story glass atrium and sweeping views of the Potomac River. It is just steps from National Harbor’s premier entertainment and shopping district and only eight miles south of Washington, DC. Plan ahead so you can take time to see famous national monuments, Smithsonian museums, the US National Zoo, and many more historic sites.

Hotel reservations are available now! Be sure to book your room at Gaylord National by July 1.

Watch the conference website for updates on registration, educational programming, and the event schedule.
