Here’s a quick round-up of summer events, an early bird special for Trees & Utilities, an update on BOD voting, kicking off UAA award nominations, and a key feature on the member portal you need to know.
It’s a busy July for us with two in-person events this month. The UAA Texas Regional Meeting in Fort Worth (July 14th-15th) and the Indiana Safety Summit (July 20th-21st) in Valparaiso. Looking forward to seeing members there for terrific sessions on pollinators in UVM, wildfire basics for UAs, live line demos, conflict resolution and more.
Registration opens in July for Trees & Utilities
Sign up for our annual conference starting on Tuesday, July 13th, 2021 and for a limited time, get the Early Bird rate of $375 to attend. Watch for conference updates in the days to come and always check out the Trees & Utilities website for the latest information. We hope to see you in October.
UAA Board of Directors voting
The nominating period for the 2021 UAA Executive Board has now closed. The nomination committee is currently reviewing the list of potential candidates to ensure they meet the organization’s established criteria for consideration. Voting will run from July 26th through August 6th. Be sure to watch for the Election Buddy link coming soon!
As a reminder, the Board includes a President Elect, who serves successively in the roles of Vice President, President and then Past-President. In addition, there is a Treasurer and four to six Directors. The tenure of the Treasurer is one year. All other members are elected to serve for three years.
Nominate someone for a UAA Award
Do you know a UAA member who is serving the utility arborist industry well above and beyond the call of duty? The UAA wants to recognize those who have made significant contributions to our field. It’s a way to show appreciation for the professionals who contribute daily to advancing our industry. The nomination period lasts from July 12th to July 23rd, with voting will scheduled from August 2nd to August 6th. Be sure to nominate someone later this month!
