Snow Academy Update

Snow Academy Update

Milwaukee, Baltimore and Denver will play host to one-day, ASCA-sponsored educational programs.

August 12, 2016
Seats are still available for the three remaining dates for the ASCA’s 2016 Snow Academy program.

“So far Snow Academy has been a resounding success in 2016,” says ASCA Executive Director Kevin Gilbride. “We hosted near-capacity crowds of professional snow and ice managers who have come out to not only learn more about what the ASCA is doing and has accomplished, but to sharpen their management skill sets.”

This year’s host cities are based on locations that were easily accessible to high concentrations of snow professionals in order to maximize attendance. Each location is strategically placed to allow easy access to area contractors, Gilbride says.

“Classroom size is limited, so if you plan to attend be sure to register as soon as possible,” he adds.

The ASCA’s Snow Academy provides education to snow contractors at a local level. A half-day of education provides information on topics such as risk management, snow contracts, weather insurance, ISO9001/SN9001, and Industry Standards. Here are the three upcoming Snow Academy sites:
Milwaukee, Wisc. - Sept. 7, 2016 The event takes place from 1 pm to 5 pm at the Western Headquarters, 7777 North 73rd St., Milwaukee, Wis., 53225.
Baltimore, Md. - Sept. 21, 2016 The event takes place from 1 pm to 5 pm at the BWI Airport Marriott.
Denver, Colo. - Sept. 27, 2016 The event takes place 1 pm to 5 pm at the DoubleTree by Hilton - Denver-Aurora.

Snow Academy provides localized, half-day snow contractor education that focuses on risk management, snow contractors, weather, ISO and more. Each Snow Academy is tailored to the city it is taking place in. The event is $35.
