    I believe you would take a wealth of knowledge away from SIMA.

    I have just returned from my first SIMA symposium and I have found that there are a lot of people that know how to plow snow but don't necessarily know how to run a business. SIMA is the answer - applying business practices to an industry you already understand.

    I have the luxury of working for a multi-billion dollar company (Not a snow company) for the last 10+ years and we have some of the best training and business systems there are. Systems and practices that I follow every day are taught at seminars and through networking, I feel these are some of the most important things that you can learn being a SIMA member. Remember training is an investment not an expense and that applies to owners and employees. - michael
