Dear all,

Once again I eat humble pie.  I suppose I should read my emails...

I have been told by several that the message below was in the e-news...

Apologies all round.

Following the disbanding of the ISA UK & Ireland Chapter (UK&I) earlier
this year, the ISA undertook a survey of its membership within the United
Kingdom and Ireland during the summer of 2015. We are advised that results
from the survey indicated that the majority of those members and credential
holders were in favour of the administration of their membership being
managed locally, by another UK-based arboricultural organisation; the ISA
consequently approached the AA.

The AA is in discussion with the ISA and is considering the benefits of an
alliance to our existing and future membership and the global networks
which could be provided. Please watch out for updates as to progress
regarding this matter and more detailed communications in the next few
weeks. For now, membership for the former Chapter members and
Certifications are being managed by ISA International.

On a related note, the AA has filled the void left by the absence of the
UK&I chapter by taking over the full membership of the European
Arboricultural Council, to ensure that all United Kingdom and Ireland
arboriculturists are represented at this level.
