Graham Zeisner retires as AORS Training Coordinator

At the end of March 2017, Graham Zeisner, CRS-S stepped down as AORS Training Coordinator.  When Graham took on the role 11.5 years ago, AORS training programs generated annual revenues in the 10’s of thousands of dollars.  In 2016, training revenues exceeded $1.1 million.  The programs introduced during Graham’s time as Training Coordinator include a broad range of equipment operator training and the very successful Public Works Leadership Development Program.  The Certified Road Supervisor (CRS) accreditation program also experienced solid growth during Graham’s term.

Thank you Graham, and congratulations!  Happy fishing!
