Member Peer Groups  

SIMA invites your company to be a part of a Member Peer Group. Select companies will be a self-governing group that meets for a minimum of four (4) times per year to discuss snow industry best practices, labor trends, staffing/recruiting, competition, market dynamics, economic trends, technologies and more. Companies will work together transparently to help each other achieve new business success and to learn from one another. Where one company may struggle, another may thrive. Individuals will walk away from these meetings with action items to help resolve issues affecting their particular business; they will report progress of change in future meetings.

Read below for more information.  


  • SIMA will accept a minimum of six (6) and maximum of eight (8) participants per peer group.  If the minimum of six is not met, then no peer group will be formed.
  • Groups must be CEOs, owners, and/or executive level management of snow & ice management companies in non-competing markets. They will have similar objectives, business lines, financial profiles and common interests.
  • All peer group members are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement in order to ensure that proprietary company information remains strictly confidential and exclusive to group activity
