Each year BIGGA's regional conferences bring leading speakers and some of the top names in the golf and turf management industry around the country.
The Association says things are no different this time around and the various Membership Services Managers across the regions have been working hard to put together a quality programme of education.
Details of the regional conferences for winter 2018/19 can be found on the events section of the BIGGA website.
Gordon McKie, course manager at the Old Course at St Andrews, will be speaking at the Central England conference on 7 November.
He said, "Attending regional conferences gives you the opportunity to network with colleagues that you may not otherwise come into contact with on a regular basis. They also provide you with the opportunity to gain some quality education closer to home. It means younger members or those who perhaps haven't engaged with BIGGA before can get a taste of what it's all about."
"It's important to hear the different stories from different parts of the country to broaden your knowledge from those areas. It allows you to learn about other ways of doing things that you may not have come across before."
"To maximise your conference experience, take as much as you can from each speaker and network and make contact with people that you may not have come into contact with before. You never know who you might meet and where you may end up!"
