Introducing Conference Rewind

Introducing Conference Rewind

Did you miss our 2020 Virtual Conference? Here’s your chance to “rewind” and take advantage of some of these great sessions from the comfort of your home or office. ISA is excited to bring its members, credential holders and the community its new ISA Conference Rewind series.

Developed by ISA, the ISA Conference Rewind series will feature a new podcast and video each month over the next nine months. The series will include new podcast episodes in the Science of Arboriculture series, introduced by Dr. Tom Smiley. The featured videos will consist of the most popular presentations from the ISA 2020 Virtual Conference.

This series of podcast and videos was developed to provide new educational content from the industry’s top researchers, educators, and practitioners.

"With the Conference Rewind series we hope to share the most popular of these presentations with a wider audience and do so using two formats—audio and video,” said Kathy Brennan, director of educational products and services for ISA. “Our members have told us that both are desired mediums and we aim to please!”

Additionally, ISA has developed a quiz component for individuals to check their learning following the podcast or video and earn CEUs.*

Don’t miss out on this exciting educational opportunity brought to you by Bartlett Tree Experts and ISA.

*Educational series is free to view, quizzes must be purchased to earn CEUs.
