Do you know of someone who has done an outstanding job on a landscape project or has provide outstand service to the Chapter? How about someone who through their writing has advanced arboriculture within the Chapter?
Now is the time to submit nominations for Chapter Awards and for Gold Leaf Awards. Let’s recognize the excellent work happening in the Midwestern Chapter.
What about the Arbor Day events you helped with, or that outstanding landscape project that really made an impact. Think about those that have done a terrific job of communicating tree care principles. Take a few minutes to tell me about those projects which stand out in your mind.
The nomination process is simple – one page outlining the details! Download the nomination forms from the Chapter website at www.mwisa.org/awards . The deadline to submit a nomination is December 2, 2016! All winners will be recognized at the MW ISA annual conference in Saint Louis February, 2017.
Right now, as we head into the fall season, is an ideal time to reflect on the successes and achievements of arborists and tree care professionals throughout our MWISA chapter. I think many of us MWISA members recognize in the efforts of our peers numerous examples of outstanding work that makes a significant contribution to our industry, accomplishments often done without much notice or fanfare. These efforts often can provide “teachable moments” which may benefit many other arborists if these endeavors were more widely publicized. Please consider that nominating a person or group for a MWISA award is more than just a pat on the back for the good work these individuals have accomplished, it is an acknowledgement of the value their contributions have given to arboriculture in the Midwestern Chapter.
Thanks you for your help, and I look forward to seeing your nomination.
The Midwestern Chapter of ISA annually recognizes individuals, groups, or organizations that have performed meritorious service in advancing the principles and practices of arboriculture and contributed significantly and unselfishly towards the progress of the Chapter. Award winners are recognized each year at the MW ISA annual conference. Awards are presented in six categories including:
In addition the Chapter presented the Arbor Day Gold Leaf Award. The Gold Leaf Award is designed to recognize an individual, organization, or community in the Midwestern Chapter area for outstanding Arbor Day programs or community landscape beautification projects. This is an opportunity for the Midwestern Chapter to recognize projects that have had an impact on a community or region with an international award. Projects should show an impact over several years.
If you know an individual or group that has performed meritorious service in advancing the principles and practices of arboriculture, produced an outstanding publication or media program, contributed significantly and unselfishly towards the progress of the Chapter, held a unique or noteworthy Arbor Day activity, or completed a significant community landscape project, this is a great opportunity to recognize your peers, associates, citizens or other individuals.
