GCSAA commends Kansas, Massachusetts and Rhode Island for pairing each member of their Congressional delegation with a Grassroots Ambassador. These states join 16 others in completely filling their Grassroots Ambassador positions, bringing the total Ambassador count to 373 out of 535.
The goal of the Grassroots Ambassador Program is to pair a GCSAA member with every Member of Congress in order to build a proactive relationship. Filling the Grassroots Ambassador positions of every state helps GCSAA expand our advocacy network and share the stories of golf course management professionals directly with legislators.
GCSAA would like to recognize the following ambassadors:
Matthew Gouraly, CGCS
Jeff White, CGCS
James Conant, CGCS
Russell Heller, CGCS
John Kelly Jr.
Peter Rappoccio, CGCS
Patrick Van Vleck
Michael Whitehead, CGCS
GCSAA needs your help to fill the remaining 164 Grassroots Ambassador spots. Review the latest Grassroots Ambassador state breakdown as of Nov. 5.
