You do not have to work for a municipality to attend!  Anyone involved in the tree industry is welcome and each meeting is worth 2 CEUs for attendees who are ISA certified arborists.  Meetings are generally held on the last Thursday of each month from October through April depending on speaker availability.

The meetings are held at the City of Moline’s Municipal Services Facility located at 3635 4th Avenue – Moline, IL – 61265 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, UNLESS otherwise noted.

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.

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 and/or suggestions about future talks are always welcome. Additionally, we are always looking for new communities to host the meetings and sponsors to provide food. Please e-mail Terry Bates at the City of Moline at tbates@moline.il.us  if you are interested or have any suggestions.
