Snow & Ice Interest Groups
Industry challenges. Industry-driven solutions.
Join a SIMA Interest Group to bring your experience and gain insight from others.
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?
Exclusive access to past meeting notes, recordings, specific resources, and SIMA contracts, templates and forms in an interest group specific dashboard.
Six (6) 1.5 hour virtual meetings per year (occurs every other month) via Zoom, GoogleMeet or Sessions.
No additional fees for SIMA members and an investment of $180 for non-members interested in this unique peer-to-peer networking opportunity. Includes dashboard maintenance and the planning and facilitation of meetings.
SIMA is currently hosting two interest groups and is looking to add more if there is interest from members and industry leaders. Check out our current interest groups or submit an idea for a future interest group.
