ISA has been hard at work creating a brand new event. The virtual 2021 ISA Tree Climber Summit!
This event will focus of the best parts of what brings this community together – growth and learning, networking with peers from around the world and conquering a challenge.
This experience will feature an amazing keynote address given by a passionate climber who has overcome significant challenges and shares a joy of climbing (scaling a different medium). There will be sessions including a virtual workshop on ISA TCC climbing gear and the proper gear check performed before tree climbing competitions. This session will be led by Phillip Kelley, ISA Certified Arborist ® and an experienced trainer and practitioner. He is the current ISA ITCC Head Technician.
Additionally, learn from past ITCC winners and competitors as they discuss what it takes to compete at the highest level and how participating in these ISA events has impacted their careers. We will have a roundtable discussion on international safety standards with arborists from around the world sharing their insights on PPE and safety training in the industry. We will also host live regional networking sessions at times that work for attendees so they can connect with arborists and climbers from their region or from other places around the globe.
