SIMA announces first 100 Advanced Snow Managers


'It's a big deal when the industry begins to truly invest in high quality training to build its workforce. We salute the first 100 Advanced Snow Managers, and will look to them for leadership in snow operations for years to come.'

It's been a busy few years for us here at the SIMA office. A great deal of that workload has come from perhaps the most intensive and focused project we have ever created at the association; the Advanced Snow Management program.

I am sure many of you in the industry have heard of it, and many are intrigued. But quite often, I think most of us tend to sit back when something new arrives, and see what happens. And I get that. But thankfully there are some folks out there who are hungry for new things, and who jump at the chance to embrace change and move in a new direction.

SIMA just crossed a threshold that I think is significant - we just awarded the Advanced Snow Manager designation to the 100th industry professional since we launched the full program in 2014.

I'm not going to talk about the ASM program in this blog. Instead I would like to simply thank the 100 individuals who took the initiative to dive into a deep training program and work through it, proving they have earned expertise in the operational elements of snow and ice management.

It's a big deal when the industry begins to truly invest in high quality training to build its workforce. We salute the first 100 Advanced Snow Managers, and will look to them for leadership in snow operations for years to come.

Check out the names of these pros - if you know any of these folks, please send them a congratulations!
