New SIMA event aims to kick-off the season with passion and purpose

August 24, 2017 -  By

The Snow & Ice Management Association (SIMA) is launching a new event, titled “Season Opener: Building Your Snow Dream Team.”

This educational and networking event will be held Sept. 19-20, at the Hyatt Regency Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Md.

“Talent acquisition and retention have become a challenge in the snow and ice removal industry,” said SIMA CEO Martin Tirado. “This event will give attendees a strong base plan to recruit employees and help them develop their careers in the industry.”

Going forward, the event will take place each fall, focused on real-world solutions, peer engagement and quality insight from experts–all designed to help the industry start the season with passion and purpose.

The event will kick off with former NBA All-Star and team-building expert Mark Eaton. He will share stories and lessons learned through his experiences with team dynamics and facilitate a discussion on recruiting methods being used by some of the snow industry’s most successful companies.

During the event, attendees will also participate in roundtable discussions to share experiences and tips for building snow careers.

The event will close with Gallup-certified strengths coach Leslie Boomer, who will provide tangible takeaways on how to develop talent in your snow organization. All registered attendees will receive a free StrengthsFinder assessment and access to a follow-up webinar on how to apply StrengthsFinder to their organization’s employees for professional and personal achievement.

Before digging into the educational portion of the agenda, attendees will network during a visit to Baltimore’s Camden Yards to watch the Baltimore Orioles face off against the Boston Red Sox on Sept. 19.

The early bird deadline for the “Season Opener” ends Aug. 31. Cost is $275 for members and $375 for potential members. It’s $50-off each additional team member who attends.
