"Many citizens and groups engage in influencing public policy through supporting candidates and political parties. However, politicians and political parties come and go. They can be voted out ...of power as easily as they are voted in. The most enduring method to shape public policy lies in education. When you change the understanding of the people, political parties can change with them.

Within this context, the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) appears as a collective voice, advocating for the interests of our diverse membership. Recently, our Board took a significant step by establishing a formal Public Policy Committee. This strategic move is aimed at shaping and aligning our message to influence the legislative process.

The second public review and comment period on the proposed draft revision to the ANSI Z133-2017 standard is open until March 18, 2024 and we would love to hear your feedback!

The American ...National Standard for Arboricultural Operations—Safety Requirements (the Z133 standard) is a United States safety standard for use across the arboriculture industry. The current edition of the Z133 was published in 2017. Since that year, the Z133 Committee has drafted revisions to refine the standard, ensure better safety outcomes, and keep pace with developments in the industry.

To ensure that the revision process is open to all parties directly and materially interested in the standard, the Z133 Committee's proposed draft is submitted to a public review and comment period. This crucial step ensures that every perspective is considered, often resulting in substantive changes and improvements to the committee's draft. All such substantive changes are again made available for public review and comment, iteratively, until the Z133 Committee decides no further changes are needed.

We are excited to share that the Indiana Arborist Association (IAA) has been awarded $250,000 in funding from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Community and Urban Forestry Program to ...launch the first ever Workforce Development program dedicated to training certified arborists for underserved and disadvantaged communities in Northwest Indiana (NWI).

Indiana, along with many other states across the US, struggles to fill jobs in the green industry with skilled labor. The IAA hopes to address this issue through this Arborist Apprenticeship and Workforce Development program.

The Arborist Apprenticeship program will be a collaborative effort with several partners in Northwest Indiana including Purdue University Northwest, Purdue Extension, and the Center for Workforce Innovation who will assist in the education and training of arborists who will go on to care for trees in Northwest Indiana.

The IAA is very excited to get this program up and running and looks forward to a continued partnership with the group who worked on the grant, including TCIA, as they will utilize our Arborist Apprenticeship Training Program! (TCIA's program is sponsored by @husqvarnausa )

Be a Pesticide-Compliance Superhero! Audrey Sellepack is the pesticide compliance specialist at The Davey Tree Expert Company.

Sellepack stresses that being a pesticide-compliance superhero ...in the tree care industry is important when developing PHC programs. In the tree care industry, we work with powerful chemicals. We have the power to kill noxious weeds, rid trees of devastating insects and cure or manage disease. We even have the power to educate clients and change the public’s perspective on pesticides. She explains that we’re not just being compliant, we are leading an industry to an age when pesticides are used effectively, safely and intentionally.

Meet another one of our Manager, Member Engagement team members, who represents our Western Territory, Amanda Gazlay!

Amanda was born and raised in NY, came of age in California and returned... “home” to California to cause “good” trouble. Singing and dancing are a few things that she has been told not to do. Amanda ignores that advice. When she is not hugging trees or talking with hawks, she can be found hiking, biking, golfing and playing pickleball with wild abandon.

Amanda has worked in the professional association world her entire life. Her Life lessons: That showing up is one thing; rolling up your sleeves is another and helping members is the ultimate.

Amanda is your point of contact for all things TCIA within our Western Territory!
