Irrigation Association hosts educational webinar series

October 7, 2020 -  By

The Irrigation Association (IA) started its Industry Insights webinar series, beginning in October and extending through April 2021. Industry Insights will feature content focused on landscape irrigation and lighting.

Normally offered on-site during the Irrigation Show and Education Week, Industry Insights is where attendees go to learn about today’s relevant topics. This new virtual Industry Insights is part of the IA’s Education Week+ and will feature 60-minute sessions (presentation and Q&A), with landscape webinars held on Tuesdays and agriculture webinars on Thursdays. The 2020-2021 webinar series hosts knowledgeable industry experts presenting information about the latest trends and research, a best practice or a how-to.

“We are excited to offer this rich content to irrigation professionals in a creative new venue,” said Mike Temple, LEED AP, CGIA, CIC, CID, CLIA, CLWM, IA technical program director. “This series features an impressive collection of experts who will be sharing their expertise on a broad range of landscape and ag topics. There is truly something of interest to every irrigation professional — from irrigating hemp to landscape irrigation design to avoiding lighting mistakes.”
