Join the WAA in-person for the Summer Conference this year at the Stayer Center at Marian University in Fond du Lac, WI on Tuesday, July 19th. The Program Committee has put together another extraordinary agenda for this event.  We are offering Two Tracks of Education, one indoors and one outdoors, covering information on pesticide regulations, tree risk assessment, aerial rescue, and much more.   We will have outdoor demonstrations on some new equipment for 2022 as well.  Many sessions will be repeated, so you won’t miss what you want to see. Be sure to enjoy the camaraderie of colleagues while feasting on a buffet lunch served in the Stayer Center Dining Room.  We look forward to seeing you in Fond du Lac!
