Peggy Drescher has joined TCIA as part-time regional outreach coordinator for the Midwest, covering Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota & Iowa. This is the first of a handful of part-time outreach coordinators TCIA plans to put in place around the country in response to members’ expressed desire to have more of a local presence for TCIA.
As a regional coordinator, Peggy will facilitate increased participation in TCIA programs via local workshops that address both owner and employee needs (EHAP, CTSP, Chipper Safety and other Tree Care Academy training programs, PHC Implementation, Business Boot Camp, etc.). She will organize member gatherings, attend regional meetings, conduct individual company outreach visits as well as strengthen the position and visibility of professional tree care with the public and in the green industry. She may also assist in coordinating days of service or other group volunteer opportunities for TCIA member companies.
Based in greater Chicago, Peggy is an ISA Certified Arborist and has 27 years of urban forestry experience. She is also a board member of the Society of Municipal Arborists (SMA) and a member of the Illinois Arborist Association (IAA). Peggy can be reached at (630) 917-8733 or via email.
