GCSAA needs your help to determine nationwide pest management practices through the Pest Management Practices Survey; no pesticide records required. This information provides much needed data for GCSAA to advocate on behalf of the golf course industry and superintendent profession. Without it, we won’t have supporting data to back up the facts showing golf courses as professionally managed greenspaces. The GCEP is sponsored by the USGA in conjunction with the EIFG.

Idaho GCSA Fall Meeting, October 5-6, 2015. The Valley Club, Hailey, Idaho. We have built a great conference!

Our “don’t miss” program includes an innovative superintendent, known for conducting in-house research – Dan Dinelli,CGCS at North Shore Country Club in Glenview, Ill..

Also joining us will be Doug Karcher, Ph.D., University of Arkansas. His involvement in the turf industry is impressive,as well as interesting, which includes a US Patent as an inventor for determining plant nitrogen levels from digital images. Karcher is a founding board member of the European Institute for Turfgrass Science, an organization dedicated to providing research-based recommendations to the European Turfgrass Industry, and also serves on the review board of the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance, whose mission is to reduce the water needs of the managed landscape while preserving its functional quality.

Enjoy a high profile! We can include your sponsorship on the Fall Meeting pre-registration material sent out in August – if you would like to commit to a break sponsorship or event sponsorship by mid-July. That is exactly what CPS Professional Products has done as a full break sponsor! Remember – the event sponsor will have their logo on the cover of the agenda, so an early commitment means more exposure.
