You do not have to work for a municipality to attend! Anyone involved in the tree industry is welcome. Each meeting is worth 2 CEUs for those members who are certified.
Registration is between $5-$12 and covers the cost of dinner. Receipts will be given upon request. If anyone is interested in sponsoring the meal, please let us know. In an effort to help us determine set up as well as improve the process of ordering food, please RSVP. This indicates your intention to stay for food and payment is expected at the door. If you are only interested in the talk and do not intend to participate in the dinner, the registration fee will be waived, provided you state so at the time of RSVP.

Comments/suggestions about future talks are always welcome. Additionally, we are always looking for new communities to host the meetings and sponsors to provide lunch. Please e-mail April Toney at april@illinoisarborist.org if you are interested.
