IAA Careers in Arboriculture Demonstration Event

September 14-15, 2023

The Gateway to Tree Science at The Morton Arboretum

Finding your start in any industry can be a challenging task to take on. First step is to identify what you are passion about, what you enjoy and where you can pursue that opportunity to grow your skills and experience. 

Our inaugural IAA Careers in Arboriculture Demonstration Event is designed to help career seeking professionals interested in arboriculture to do just that. Attendees will get to see live arboricultural practices and applications in action, demonstrating to attendees how the work is actually done. You’ll interact with current arboriculture professionals and ask questions to learn more about the types of work that you might be most interested in. Following the demonstrations, we will provide an evening dinner, networking and career fair to help attendees learn of current opportunities available in the industry.

The arboriculture industry is much more than chainsaws and large equipment. Attendees will learn of and explore the spectrum of career opportunities, services provided and businesses and organizations within the industry that best fit your passions, desires and skill set in a career in arboriculture.

The first 10 attendees to register for this event, will be provided one free night of stay at a local hotel where the evening dinner and career fair event will take place. Attendees will be responsible for their own travel to and during this two day event. Lunch will be provided both days, as well as the dinner on the first day of the event.
