It looks like the 2016 Annual Conference will be an outstanding conference in many ways .The General Session topics and speakers will be very informative with the latest in educational material and substance. This will provide you, the vegetation management professional, needed information to perform your daily tasks as it relates to roadside management and safety to the driving public. These sessions will begin after lunch on Tuesday and end on Thursday afternoon.


We will begin on Tuesday morning with an equipment demonstration in the hotel parking lot. The latest in equipment and technology will be offered by our very knowledgeable Exhibitors, who are always a big part of our conference.


We will open the Conference with lunch and our Guest Speaker, Dr. Dennis Swanberg. Dr. Swanberg has been called “America’s Minister of Encouragement”. You may learn more about him by visiting his website, Be ready for a lot of laughter and impersonations of many of well-known individuals. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Swanberg join us.


Wednesday morning, we will recognize the Turney Hernandez Excellence Award winners. This will be sponsored by Bayer IVM.


Wednesday evening, our popular Industry Night, this year sponsored by DOW Agrosciences,  will be held at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. Transportation will be provided.


As of August 5, CEU credits will be given for Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. We are still waiting on a few more states. If received before the conference I will post them.
