EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S BRANCH:

UPCOMING ACTIVITIES & EVENTS:

 

Time to Retire

 

When my final contract expires on October 1, 2018, it will mark my ninth anniversary since I teamed up with the Midwestern Chapter as Executive Director and 34 years since I first joined the International Society of Arboriculture and Midwestern Chapter. I signed up in 1984, attended my first Midwestern Chapter and ISA Conferences in 1985 and accepted my first Chapter leadership role as editor of Shade Tree Leaves in 1986.

 

Lots has happened during those 34 years and as I look back I realize I have attended 32 out of last 33 Midwestern Chapter Annual Conference and Trade Shows. I kind of feel bad that I broke my streak and missed Topeka in 2007 but an ice storm precluded that one.

 

I count 12 MW-TCCs as well as 27 ISA Conferences attended during that span. I was also very fortunate to represent the Midwestern Chapter for 13 years as a member of the ISA Board of Directors, serve as Chapter President, Host the 2000 Annual Conference and Trade Show and chair a number of Chapter and ISA committees.

 

Recently, during a work session of the Board prior to the Midwestern Chapter Tree Climbing Championship, President Jim Bauer outlined the process for naming a successor to the position. It was agreed by the Board that the first step to be taken will be to solicit input, ideas and potential interest from the Chapter membership. Please contact Jim (jbauer@Itctransco.com) if you have interest in the position or any ideas on how to select a new Chapter Executive.

 

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact any member of the Board of Directors or the Executive Director with any concerns or comments you might have. We are always interested in your thoughts and eager to answer any questions.
