• Walking industry-related trade shows

• Working with a business or leadership coach

• Attending business or snow-focused seminars or webinars

• Mentoring someone in the industry

• Volunteering with SIMA

• Writing industry-related articles or giving industry or business presentations

• Attend our annual Snow & Ice Symposium, you get all 15 credits for the year!
