Our annual line clearance forestry school will be held on the grounds of Wayne Fitzgerrell State Park. It is designed to accommodate both experienced and inexperienced employees who wish to become more proficient in the field of Line Clearance – Right of Way Management. We also offer a three-day course during this time that will help prepare line personnel responding to outages and storm damage caused by trees. We have always strived to teach students based on the newest standards available to our industry. Participants will be expected to demonstrate procedures and be competent in their application upon completion of the school. Once completing this course, they will receive a certificate of completion. CEU’s will be available through the International Society of Arboriculture.

IEC Chris Schinneer Memorial Golf Outing
August 12, 2022
Lake Shore Golf Course- Taylorville, IL
Each year the Chris Schinneer Memorial Golf Outing is held at a golf course on cooperative lines and is attended by cooperative managers, employees, directors, retirees and friends. Golfers spend the morning playing golf and then enjoy an awards luncheon immediately afterwards. The outing is enjoyed by all that attend because it’s a fun filled way to get to know the cooperative family. Don’t fret if you’re not a golfer, the day is all about the relationships you make and not the score of the game!
