New Chairman outlines his plans for the TGA
His first task as Chairman was to present his predecessor, Chris Carr of Q Lawns, with a gift in recognition of his service to the Association during his two-years at the helm.
The thirty members who attended discussed a variety of topics including research and development, the forthcoming turf show and widening the appeal of membership through PR and promotion.
"I'm committed to the turf industry as a whole, not just those growers who choose to be members of the TGA", commented Stephen. "but as Chairman I plan to encourage the TGA council to work proactively with existing members to encourage new membership and to promote its benefits to both the grower and the end-user.
As an Association, we'll be carrying out a review of our BS 3969 quality standard, which was last revised in 1998 and hope to channel some of our reserve funds into a research project based on the findings of our annual market survey."
