Best Places to Work in Snow & Ice

Company culture is a powerful morale booster for employees and for workforce recruiting and retention. Mirrored after popular “Best Places to Work” awards in other industries, companies will be judged on how successful they are in offering programs that promote employee engagement, professional development, effective management, team dynamics and trust in leadership.

Alan Steiman Symposium Scholarship*

In recognition of longtime SIMA member, mentor and friend, SIMA created the Alan Steiman Symposium Scholarship to be awarded each year to a first-time Symposium attendee that embodies Steiman’s spirit of camaraderie and his belief that education is essential to success in the snow and ice management industry.

Recipient(s) of the scholarship will receive free full registration to the Virtual Symposium. Preference will be given to companies who have never attended the Symposium.
