Nominees will be judged on how their efforts and outreach to their assigned policymaker via the Ambassador Program has served the interests of the golf course superintendent profession and the golf course management industry. Efforts do not have to be successful for a nominee to receive the award.
The GAL award seeks to highlight advocacy efforts related to:
- Consistent outreach, communication, and interaction with the assigned Congressional office.
- Actions taken to educate the assigned policy maker or his or her staff on issues affecting the superintendent profession.
- Ability to make a policy related “ask” of the assigned lawmaker in support of one or more GCSAA priority issues.
