“Without a doubt, snow contractors are operating in a challenging business environment,” says ASCA's Executive Director Kevin Gilbride. “So we did our due diligence and really gathered a lot of feedback to determine where our focus should be with this year’s educational offering. I’m happy to say the conference schedule reflects what contractors indicated they needed regarding education.”

In addition, the ASCA and Snow Magazine announced this year’s leadership award winners. This year four professional snow and ice managers will be honored.
This year's Leadership Award recipients include:
• Dick Churchill, The Groundskeeper, Ashland, Mass.;
• Steven Jomides, Lawns By Yorkshire, Westwood, N.J.;
• Stephanie Sauers-Boyd, Sauers Tree & landscape, Dresher, Pa.; and
• Jack Wieske, Cedar Springs Landscape, Ancaster, Ontario

“So many snow and ice managers are committed not only to their company’s success, but also to the industry at large, as well as the communities that they work and live in,” Gilbride adds. “This is a testament to the rich and deep sense of professionalism that is pervasive throughout the snow industry.”

Leadership Awards winners will be honored at a special gala dinner the evening of Aug. 8.
