About WMC

TCIA’s annual Winter Management Conference (WMC) is a unique platform for senior-level tree care executives who want to foster connections with industry peers, explore innovative solutions for their businesses, and have some fun!

This premier business event offers an opportunity for professionals to delve into cutting-edge insights, stay informed about market trends, and engage with world-class speakers to stay ahead of the curve.

WMC is also home to two important events – the TCIAF Robert Felix Memorial Golf Tournament plus an auction and dinner hosted by the TCIA Foundation. The proceeds from this event will raise money for the Arborist Safety Training Institute, which funds affordable and quality safety training for working arborists.

Attendees are also invited to social and recreational activities, such as evening dinner cruises, fishing excursions, and whatever unique local experiences the destination offers. Past conference locations have included idyllic destinations such as Hawaii, Aruba, and Barbados.

Supporting the Industry

WMC is home to two important fundraising events critical to the future of the industry – the TCIAF Robert Felix Memorial Fishing Tournament, and the ASTI Dinner and Auction.

This year, the Robert Felix Memorial Tournament is back – with a twist. We are capturing the spirit of this great competition by hosting the first-ever fishing tournament at WMC 2023 to support the industry. By catching up with a team for a day of stress-free fishing, sponsoring part of the tournament, or simply learning a little more about what Robert Felix means to our industry, you will be supporting the mission of the TCIA Foundation and contributing to increased safety in tree care. REGISTER HERE.

Another opportunity to support the industry takes place at the always-popular ASTI Dinner & Auction, one of WMC’s signature events. Come network with the best of the industry at this exclusive sit-down dinner and live auction. All proceeds benefit the Arborist Safety Training Institute (ASTI), which works to bring quality, local and affordable safety training to working arborists. You can register for the dinner and auction here, and if you are interested in donating an item, please send a note to Aiden O’Brien aobrien@tcia.org.

The Tree Care Industry Association Foundation (TCIAF) is dedicated to advancing the green industry through educational, safety, and professional development programs. Learn more about our mission and what you can do to help improve safety in the tree care industry.

Education and CEUs

Each year we focus on business topics that are relevant to you, and this year is no different! Join us as we welcome new speakers and bring back past favorites. Topics will include safety and leadership, business processes, brand messaging, and more! We are glad to offer CTSP and ISA CEUs to all eligible sessions. Please be sure to check the Education and Networking pages in the coming weeks for information about CEUs.

Supporting the Community

For nearly ten years, TCIA has been running our annual “Give Back” campaign at Winter Management Conference in February. In case you’re unfamiliar, TCIA partners with a local school and encourages WMC attendees to bring much-needed donations of school supplies.
