The Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) Winter Management Conference (WMC) 2018 will be held at the Westin Maui Resort & Spa on legendary Ka’anapali Beach, Maui, Hawaii, February 4-8, 2018.
Join hundreds of like-minded tree care professionals for five days of sharing knowledge with industry peers, finding solutions for your business in today’s complicated world, and celebrating successes and milestones with your colleagues. This is a must-attend event for business owners and managers. WMC pricing and registration is live now.
Attend poolside forums, roundtables and receptions to network with some of the biggest names in the industry. The laid-back, island atmosphere is the perfect place to establish new connections and make new friends, as well as network with old friends.
“For the last two decades, WMC has provided me with more successful networking opportunities than any other meeting, conference or trade show that I have attended,” said Dennis Beam, Altec Environmental Products
“WMC has been a great experience for us for the past three years,” added Joe Pipitone, Top Notch Tree Care. “TCIA staff are always excellent, and the programs and presenters are fantastic! We find the real value we gain is the tremendous relationships that develop. Strangers become friends and mentors, and that alone is worth the trip.”
Education and CEUs
Each year WMC focuses on business topics that are relevant to you, and this year is no different. Topics will include safety and leadership, business processes, brand messaging and more. WMC will offer CTSP CEUs, and will be offering ISA CEUs. Check the Education and Networking pages in the coming weeks for information about ISA CEUs.
“WMC is the single best thing I do for my business each year. What I learn in the presentations is always very informative. And what I get from networking with my fellow business owners is worth the price of admission. I always come back from WMC charged up and ready to take on the world,” said Richard Lewis, Woodbridge Estate Care.
Support the industry
WMC is home to two important events – the Robert Felix Memorial Golf Tournament, and the Voice for Trees Political Action Committee Cocktail Party & Auction.
