Join us on August 14, 2018 for a one day seminar in Addison, IL!

Winter will be here soon.

When the weather's hot, thinking about the upcoming winter may be the last thing on your mind. That's why Vaisala, the world leader in providing weather information solutions, has teamed up again with the Suburban Branch and Metro Chicago Chapter of the APWA to bring you a winter maintenance educational event to prepare you for the upcoming seasons.

Our seminar is different: we round up both local experts and experts from across the United States to present their successes and failures, answer your questions, and discuss pressing winter operations topics. But even more, they make this training interesting and fun! The program is refreshed for 2018, so even if you've attended in the past you're sure to learn something new!
