In concert with 2019 ISA Annual International Conference and Trade Show, the International Tree Climbing Championship (ITCC), will be held prior, 9-11 August, in beautiful Lakeshore Park overlooking the Tennessee River. The ITCC convenes elite arborists to compete in a series of challenges that showcase competitors’ skill, technique and athleticism while emphasizing the importance of safe work practices. Competitors and attendees alike network and share trade best practices. The corresponding Arbor Fair held during the ITCC further engages and informs the local community. The ISA Southern Chapter, sponsoring organizations and dedicated volunteers work with ISA staff to create a family-friendly event that brings ISA’s mission to life. Attendees can stop by the “Ask an Arborist” booth for expert advice, find info about the latest equipment from participating sponsors, sample local food truck fare and more. Children can participate in the Kid’s Climb. All are welcome, including pets!
Volunteer jobs with the Arbor Fair & Expo include: site set up and tear down, placing signage, volunteer/vendor check-in, parking attendants, face painting, craft area monitor, fun climb check-in, and supply monitors (help with maintaining supplies and needs for all volunteer positions).
Volunteer jobs with the conference include: ticket taker, registration, directional assistant, badge checker for trade show and education sessions, and monitor/CEU Info at Climber's corner.
