Industry News

New Hampshire Landscape Association's event will take place next week.

| January 18, 2013

The New Hampshire Landscape Association (NHLA) is the professional association for businesses involved in the landscape industry New Hampshire, representing more than 250 landscape and related industry businesses.

The NHLA has teamed with Milton CAT, arranging a Build a Better Landscape Business workshop, encouraging landscapers from across the state to get out of trucks and into the classroom. Landscapers will be bringing their own company financials while the workshop's instructors, actual top-100 landscape company contractors from all over the US and Canada, assist with organizing for a successful 2013 and beyond.

The NH Landscape Association made sure this is not a sit-back-and-listen workshop. Rather, local business people will leave the workshop with an operating budget built with their own financial numbers, specifically for their own company.

Included will be a pricing system that calculates competitive prices to cover costs and make a reasonable profit. Landscapers will learn how money is lost to waste and inefficiency and learn landscape construction and maintenance estimating methods that improve field productivity.

The workshop will be held at Milton CAT, 780 Route 103 East, Warner N.H., over a two-day period from January 24 to 25, from 8:30am – 4:30pm each day. Fees include both days and lunches, NHLA Members $110 per person and for non-members, $125 per person.

Attendees must bring one laptop computer per company with a wireless network card and their financials. To register online go to bit.ly/nhlaworkshop or contact Amanda Johnson at the Landscape Management Network at info@landscapemanagementnetwork.com or 888-347-9864.

Due to the interactive nature of this NHLA sponsored workshop, registration is limited to just 30 persons so landscapers are asked reserve your seats as quickly as possible.
