    What we will learn:

    Supplemental support systems are often a great way to lower the likelihood of failure for a tree or its parts, and the knowledge of their use should be in every Arborists back pocket.

    In this class we will discuss different systems, their use, limitations and the liabilities associated with them

    A bit about this event

    As most remember, during COVID the GAA transitioned to all virtual classes. We all adapted to this new format out of necessity but many learned virtual format programs were more convenient and time saving. Therefore in 2022 when we brought back in-person bi-monthly trainings, we found that our audience still preferred learning from home for these 1-hour events. We decided to keep the bi-monthly trainings all virtual - this allowed us to continue to reach all parts of Georgia and way far beyond that. However, the need to network throughout different parts of Georgia is still highly requested by membership. Therefore, the quarterly Educational Happy Hour was born!

    The goal of this event is to hold 1x per quarter in a different area of Georgia to increase industry engagement, membership and encourage professional connections through networking across the state. Locations are chosen based on demand/requests from membership. If you would like the event in your area, please request so here.

    We will be holding these events on Fridays in the hope that families can plan a weekend get-away in the area and bring more than just locals to the networking events. Let's all get together and make new connections!
