    GCEP: Take the Pest Management Practices Survey
    GCSAA needs your help to determine nationwide pest management practices through the Pest Management Practices Survey; no pesticide records required. This information provides much needed data for GCSAA to advocate on behalf of the golf course industry and superintendent profession. Without it, we won't have supporting data to back up the facts showing golf courses as professionally managed greenspaces. The GCEP is sponsored by the USGA in conjunction with the EIFG.

    Candidate slate set for 2016 Board of Directors
    The Nominating Committee has announced the list of candidates for the 2016 GCSAA Board of Directors, with the election taking place Feb. 11, during the Golf Industry Show. The offices of president, vice president and secretary/treasurer, along with two director positions, will be on the ballot.

    Update on Member Standards
    GCSAA President John J. O’Keefe, CGCS, shares the latest information on the Member Standards proposal. The GCSAA Board of Directors has revised the proposal after receiving input from many constituents over the past few months, beginning with the 2014 Chapter Delegates Meeting and carrying through the 2015 Golf Industry Show in San Antonio.
