Snow & Ice Interest Groups

Industry challenges. Industry-driven solutions.

Join a SIMA Interest Group to bring your experience and gain insight from others.

You’re invited

Join a SIMA Interest Group

Participation in a Snow and Ice Management Association (SIMA) interest group can greatly benefit individuals in the industry by providing a platform for knowledge sharing, collaboration, and professional development. 

Have you ever attended a Snow and Ice Symposium and connected with a group of peers at a Snack & Chat, Breakfast Jamboree, or Roundtable and thought to yourself, “I wish I could collaborate like this more often.” We have designed a solution for you! We are excited to introduce SIMA Interest Groups. Our interest group platform is a new way to share best practices and ideas on topics that you are passionate about in a casual forum, no matter where you are geographically.

Why an interest group?
