ISA Toronto 2013
ISA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE & TRADE SHOW. August 3-7, 2013, Toronto, Ontario
Calling Ontario Volunteers!. While your Local Committee has received a good number of offers to help from generous ISA members, their family and/or friends, we still need to fill 80-90 four hour ‘shifts’ (morning, afternoon or early evening). Please consider giving some of your time as a ‘Thank You’ to all that arboriculture, urban forestry, or the ISAO has meant to you over your career. Your assistance will be much appreciated, and you also get a free T-shirt and a chance at daily volunteer prizes! Registration form...
Register by July 10 for just $495 (member price!). Click for details... ISA’s 2012 Conference & Trade Show last summer in Portland, Oregon, was ISA's most successful ever in terms of attendance and we hope to raise the bar even higher this summer here in Ontario. Check out the conference program and plan to attend! And while you're surfing, here's a short promotional video...
ISA Ontario will be the local host Chapter for the 2013 ISA Annual Conference & Trade Show. Paul Kobold, long-time member and volunteer, has been appointed as the Local Committee Chair (LCC) for this international event. One of the major duties of the LCC is to appoint Conference Coordinators for the various sub-group committees. These individuals must be self motivated, passionate, forward thinkers who have a thorough knowledge of ISA's mission statement and the annual conference purpose statement. After many months of discussion and consideration, Paul is pleased to introduce his Local Committee Team.

2. Volunteer Coordinator: Mark Procunier
3. Exhibit & Sponsorship Coordinator: Cor Bultana
