Sports Turf Canada Joins Forces with AGSA
The Atlantic Golf Superintendents Association (AGSA) and Sports Turf Canada (STC) have announced they will be joining forces for the first time to present the Atlantic Turfgrass Conference and Trade Show.
The annual event, administered by the AGSA on behalf of the Atlantic Turfgrass Research Foundation (ATRF), will be held February 23 to 25, 2016 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.
The Atlantic Turfgrass Conference and Trade Show is the region’s premier event for turf managers in the golf course, sports field, lawn care, and sod industry. Through this partnership, Sports Turf Canada will be able to offer enhanced programming with more specialized education and professional development for sports turf managers.
AGSA/ATRF president Kevin Wentzell is enthusiastic about the collaboration, “It makes sense for our associations to join together as we continue to grow in knowledge and support one another as turf professionals”.
Tennessee Propedo, STC president, concurs, “We are delighted to be partnering with the AGSA for this event. It is, for us, a natural progression from our courses and field days, bringing additional educational and training opportunities for all associated with the sports turf industry in Atlantic Canada.”
The accompanying trade show always enjoys considerable industry support. For more information regarding sponsor, exhibitor, and program details as they become available, please visit the website of the AGSA.
