To all ISA Members and Credential Holders residing in the UKI:

ISA is in the final stages of solidifying a relationship with the Arboricultural Association (AA), which would ultimately enable the AA to service member and credential holders in the UKI region. AA and ISA are in agreement on a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that establishes the formal relationship between the two parties with the AA being an Associate Organization, not a Chapter. Currently, we are working together on arrangements to offer membership dues collection, credentialing programs (certification and recertification), product sales, etc.

We are very excited about the opportunities this new synergy between AA and ISA will bring. We anticipate that the relationship will be formalized and a final agreement between the two groups signed within the next three months or so.

In the meantime, ISA will continue to service members and credential holders from ISA Headquarters in Champaign, Illinois, USA.

If you have any questions during this transition, I encourage you to contact Shelia Beaumier, ISA’s Director of Member Services and Component Relations, at sbeaumier@isa-arbor.com or +1.217.355.9411.

Thank you for your support of ISA and the arboriculture profession. I look forward to a continued relationship with the arboriculture community in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Regards,

Jim Skiera
ISA Executive Director
