GCSAA commends the affiliated chapters in the states of Florida, Maine, Mississippi and New Hampshire for pairing each member of their Congressional delegation with a GCSAA Grassroots Ambassador. These four states join 27 others in completely filling their Grassroots Ambassador positions, bringing the total Ambassador count to 446 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 lawmakers. This program will continue to be critically important to our advocacy efforts as we move into a new Congress in 2021.
GCSAA would like to recognize the following Grassroots Ambassadors:
Kelly Barker, CGCS
Andrew Jorgensen, CGCS
John Lammrish, CGCS
David Robinson, CGCS
Dennis “Andy” Neiswender
Joe Hubbard, CGCS
Darren Davis, CGCS
Brent McBrayer, CGCS
GCSAA’s Government Affairs team needs your help to fill the remaining 91 Grassroots Ambassador spots by December 31, 2020. Review the latest Grassroots Ambassador state breakdown to see if there are open positions in your state. Anyone who secures one of the remaining Grassroots Ambassador spots will receive a $50 gift card from the GCSAA Government Affairs department.
If your state or district is filled, you are still able to join the army of golf industry supporters as a member of a GCSAA Advocacy Team. Advocacy Team members can help weigh in on the association’s Priority Issues Agenda and may be assigned to work with governors, state legislators, or elected officials at the local level.
If you would like to become a Grassroots Ambassador, join a GCSAA Advocacy Team or help recruit for the program, contact Michael Lee, manager, government affairs, at 800-472-7878, ext. 3612.
