From your GCSAA Field Staff, Kevin Doyle:
Hopefully you were able to learn how GCSAA provides and delivers valuable resources directly to you the member in our last newsletter. This article dives into the resources available to your local association. The affiliation between GCSAA and your local association are very important and the ability of your chapter to deliver value to you, the member, is key to the success of our industry. The goal of utilizing resources and benefits delivered from GCSAA, your local chapter, to you the member is to build the “we” instead of the “us” and “them.”
Effective local associations have the best chance of assisting you in being a highly efficient and effective member. GCSAA works to ensure that resources are available to give the best possible chance of that happening. An extensive list of those benefits and resources are listed below. Whether you are a leader of your local chapter or not, this list should show the value of associations working together for the benefit of everyone!
Chapter Board Resources
Hopefully you recognize many of the resources above as benefits being utilized by you local association. Better yet, I’m hopeful you are utilizing the BMP and Government Affairs opportunities at your own facility! Be sure your equipment manager finds those educational resources too. As always, I hope I can be a resource to you as well. Be sure to reach out to your chapter and GCSAA to ensure you make the most of all of your membership benefits.
Again, if I can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact me.
