Serving shared members
Together, affiliated chapters and GCSAA serve shared members. This
partnership allows both associations to focus on supporting members in areas
- Career success
- Having access to numerous professional development opportunities
- Offering education, resources and networking opportunities to add value to
their position and facility
Members must be able to clearly identify the role that their local
chapter plays, the role that their regional or state organization plays, and the
role that their national organization plays. They must be assured that they can
expect to receive the level of service and programs they need from each of these
organizations to be successful in their careers.
The local chapter is where a member should experience networking and
camaraderie, and participate in educational opportunities.
The regional or state association should provide a network that brings
together members and leaders for common purposes. It should offer programs and
GCSAA should provide a higher level of resources, programs and services, and
advocate for the best interests of the golf course management profession.
