Joe Stefanick, the equipment technician at Seven Lakes Golf and Tennis Community in Fort Myers, Fla., has been selected as the recipient of the 2014 Most Valuable Technician Award, presented by GCSAA and GCM in partnership with Foley United. The award recognizes excellence among golf course equipment technicians and the vital role they play in the golf course management industry.
Proposals for the 2014 Research Grant Program will be accepted through Oct.1. GCSAA offers funding, through the EIFG, for new research projects that will benefit superintendents and the golf courses they manage. GCSAA encourages chapters to work with university scientists to submit proposals for applied agronomic, environmental and regulatory research.
Applications are open until Sept. 30 for the 2014 GCSAA/Golf Digest Environmental Leaders in Golf Awards, which recognize superintendents and golf courses for their commitment to environmental stewardship. This year's awards, presented in partnership with Syngenta and Rain Bird, feature new criteria for the contest.
As part of the second phase of the Golf Course Environmental Profile, GCSAA will be releasing its Water Use survey this fall. The water survey will be followed by four other topics that will be released between 2015 and 2017.
The 2014 Chapter Delegates Meeting will be held Oct. 14-16 at GCSAA Headquarters in Lawrence, Kan.
