For the fifth straight year, Bayer Environmental Science has teamed up with The Environmental Institute for Golf, the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA), to send five golf course superintendents to the 2008 edition of the GCSAA Education Conference (Jan. 28-Feb. 2) and Golf Industry Show (Jan.
31-Feb. 2) in Orlando.
The purpose of the grant is to assist golf course superintendents with their professional development through participation in the annual event, which features the most comprehensive education program and trade show in the industry.
Golf course superintendents who did not attend the last two GCSAA Education Conferences and Golf Industry Show are eligible. Those interested should complete and submit the online application on either www.gcsaa.org.or contact GCSAA member services at 800-472-7878 to receive an application via fax. Entries will be accepted through Oct. 26, 2007. The
winners will be selected through a random drawing, and The Institute will notify winners in November. Only one application will be accepted per person. GCSAA membership is not required.
Each grant will cover expenses for airfare (including international), hotel accommodations for six nights, conference registration (full-pack), two education seminars (half-day, one-day, or two-day), and $200 spending money.
"We are delighted that Bayer has renewed this program for a fifth year," said GCSAA CEO Steve Mona, CAE. "By sending five golf course superintendents to the GCSAA Education Conference and Golf Industry Show, Bayer continues to recognize the role of the golf course superintendent and The Institute's commitment to strengthen the compatibility of the game of golf with our natural environment."
"Bayer Environmental Science recognizes the importance of professional development to stay current in the field," Mike Daly, Bayer Environmental Science golf market manager said. "We are pleased to continue our relationship with The Environmental Institute for Golf by helping five golf course superintendents further their professional development at the 2008 GCSAA Education Conference and Golf Industry Show."
