Support bolsters advocacy training for GCSAA members

Lawrence, Kan. (Feb. 20, 2024) – AMGUARD Environmental Technologies has committed to providing continued financial support of the GCSAA Foundation, the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA). With its gift, AMGUARD will help fund government affairs sessions at the annual GCSAA Conference and Trade Show and quarterly advocacy briefings throughout the year. 

“AMGUARD is pleased to continue our sponsorship of the GCSAA government affairs sessions this year,” said Shayne M. Wetherall, chief executive officer of AMGUARD Environmental Technologies. “All of us at AMGUARD appreciate the GCSAA government affairs team and the GCSAA Grassroots Ambassadors for the vital work they are doing to educate our lawmakers about the importance of the golf turf industry.” 

AMGUARD, which has supported GCSAA advocacy programs since 2018, is a member of the Foundation's Platinum Tee Club for organizations that donate $5,000 or more annually.  AMGUARD, an American Vanguard Co., is a leading provider of proven chemistries and low-impact solutions for the professional pest control, public health, and golf, lawn care and ornamental markets.

“AMGUARD’s support helps fund crucial advocacy training. Our GCSAA Grassroots Ambassadors give golf a voice on Capitol Hill, and AMGUARD’s has been an important element of that,” GCSAA CEO Rhett Evans said. “We thank them for their generous gift.”
