• Starting off in the industry new to the area and then taking the leap of faith branching out on my own, ILCA provided the contacts, friendships, education, and resources to make that all possible. The friends and colleagues that I have had the privilege to know and learn from have been invaluable through ILCA friendships and events. It is always wonderful to meet and see old friends and make new friends, stay up with current industry news and learn about what is next. The landscape industry is all about continual learning and the ILCA provides a great outlet to foster these relationships and continue to help us all grow better at our areas of expertise and have fun along the way!

  • As I became involved in the landscape industry, I found out how much I needed to learn, as well as to be competitive with large scale companies. I knew, I needed help. So, I became a member of ILCA. I got involved with committees. By being involved, I surrounded myself with knowledgeable people. Not only did I build my level of knowledge, but also my confidence. It’s a great opportunity! Join the ILCA!

    Cuando me vi envuelto en el servicio de jardineria, me encontre con la sorpresa, lo mucho que tenia que aprender, tambien para poder competir con otras companias mas avanzadas, me di cuenta que necesitaba ayuda. Me hize miembro del ILCA, fui a los mas seminarios que pude ateender! me involucre con otros commitees, y pase a ser directivo, al involucrarme, me rodie de personas con preparacion y sabiduria, y eso me levanto mi nivel de conocimientos y confidencia! Una Buena oportunidad! Unette al ILCA….

  • Small landscape contracting businesses have a lot in common. We have a one-ton dump truck. We have a trailer loaded with the best power equipment that we can afford. Membership in ILCA helps set us apart from the competition. Networking events provide us the opportunity to forge and solidify relationships with vendors and contemporaries. Educational events keep us abreast of best practices and emerging industry trends. Whether you are chasing the mower, supervising the crew, managing the office, or doing it all, membership in the ILCA is a necessity. It is for us!
