23 November/December 2019 | THE DAVEY BULLETIN TREES AND UTILITIES CONFERENCE BOLSTERED BY DAVEY KNOWLEDGE Davey was the platinum sponsor of the 2019 Trees & Utilities Conference, which is a partnership of the Utility Arborist Association (UAA) and the Arbor Day Foundation. The conference was held in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Trees & Utilities Conference places the issues facing the industry surrounding safety, workforce retention and technology at the forefront of conversation, said Laura Wimer, director of client experience, Eastern Utility. "By having a large presence at this conference, we are able to educate and be well-informed on how Davey can be the most successful moving forward," Wimer said. "I think with the amount of focus in our industry on safety and workforce retention, we need to have a presence at these conferences. Our clients also want to know what's new." Tom Wolf, vice president of sales and client relations, Davey Resource Group, Utility Vegetation Management, gave the welcome address at the conference and spoke about the ways "we" as an industry can unite to make an impact, Wimer said. "It's the collaboration and what we can all bring to advance this industry," she said. "What we can all do to tackle the issues of safety, employee retention and working toward constant improvement." OWNER'S BOX " Employee ownership is a great investment in your future that you can't find in many places. So, it's a big asset to have as an employee of this company. It makes us stand out and gives us something extra to work for to be proud of.
