In seeking to ensure a return on investment and increase attendance at ARBORCON 2020, ASM is looking for innovative and quality presenters to attract a myriad of tree care professionals: utility, municipal, plant health care, tree worker/climber and business owner/manager; and professional development to further their learning and leadership experiences.

ARBOR CON is Michigan’s premier education and networking event for tree care professionals. This event attracts over 400 attendees each year. ARBORCON 2020 is scheduled to take place from February 10-12 at the Lansing Center in Lansing, Mich. All presentations will take place either February 11 or 12. February 10 is reserved for the Pre-Conference topics.

This year, we’re designating the topics that we would like presented and the target audience for that presentation. As a result, I invite you to read through the Call for Presentation carefully and give thoughtful consideration in your response. ASM is looking for a customized presentation to fit the designated topic that will provide takeaways for the intended audience.

The deadline to submit a Presentation is October 31. Speakers will be notified no later than November 13, 2019 as to the status of their proposal. If accepted, ASM will negotiate a speaker’s agreement at that time describing the expectations of each party.

On behalf of the ASM Education Committee, I extend my appreciation for the time and resources you employ to ensure quality learning and leadership experiences. If you have any questions or need any additional information, please contact me at 517-337-4999,

Kind Regards,
Annie Kruise, CMP
