Hotel Reservations

When you make your hotel reservation be sure to mention VMAK so you will get our room rate.

Certifications for Kentucky and other states:

Representatives from the Kentucky Department of Agriculture will be on hand to provide re-certification forms at the end of each day.

Reciprocal re-certification credits have been requested from those states that typically participate in the reciprocity program with Kentucky and we anticipate a positive response from each of them. To assure that you receive the proper re-certification from each of the states, please bring the necessary documentation (i.e., certification number, license number, social security number, and current mailing address) with you to receive the proper CEU credit. Again, this year we will also have ISA Credits for Arbroists.

Make sure you sign the forms provided at the end of each day for those states that require VMAK to fill out paper work each day and turn it in that day.

We look forward to seeing each of you at the Association Meeting in March.
