From The President (March 2014) 

As I write this, it is another below zero day with a fresh coating of snow on the ground and it seems that spring is as far off as it was in December!  I hope everyone has fared well through this winter that never seems to end.

In preparing for the busy seasons ahead, keep in mind the safety needs of your crews.  With the changing seasons, I always think of spring as snake and tick season, and hate them both equally.  For the snakes I try to avoid areas that they are prone to be although it does not always work, but with the ticks a lot of repellent is necessary.  And since I never think of it in winter but sun block is a must with the changing seasons.

I was very fortunate to attend the Minnesota convention.  It is a worthwhile event to attend and their guests are very well treated. If I could I would attend again.  Unfortunately I was not able to attend the other state conventions due to scheduling issues.

The legislative session has been a quiet one for us this year to date. We are very fortunate to have a lot of members who keep a close eye on the bills as they are introduced and we are grateful to them for all the work that they do.
