Keeping Connected

These are extraordinary times and we’re aware that many of our members will now be adjusting to new and perhaps unfamiliar working practices.

Here at the Institute, we realise the importance of keeping connected, from both professional and health-related perspectives. With this in mind, we’ve been working hard on putting together a number of initiatives to help keep our members connected and informed of the latest developments in forestry and arboriculture.

To this end, we’re very excited to bring you #MembersHour – an informal series of free, weekly online sessions that will cover a diverse range of topics and subject areas of interest to our members. This is your opportunity to learn, to share best practice and above all to catch up with other members.

These sessions will run every Thursday from 11am until 12pm via Zoom and will typically involve a 30-minute presentation followed by an interactive 30 minutes of Q&A. Unfortunately, we’re limited to 100 participants so make sure to book fast. If you don’t get a place, we’ll be live-tweeting on Twitter and providing updates on LinkedIn so you can get involved and ask questions which we will then feedback to the host.

Please see the schedule for #MembersHour sessions below which we’ll be frequently updating.

Finally, if there’s a subject you’d like to discuss, or potentially host, then please get in touch with us here.
