12.10.07.AGSA.logoThe AGSA is very pleased to announce the appointment of Dennis McKernan as the in-coming Executive Director. Our current Executive Director, Barb Alexander will be retiring at the end of 2015.

Dennis is well known in an industry he has served for over 30 years in not only Alberta but Western Canada.  He started his career as superintendent of the Lethbridge Country Club, before moving to Olds College as grounds manager.  While in Olds, he became Lead Instructor in the Turf Management Program and the Horticulture Diploma Program.

With a passion for Irrigation, Dennis then became the Education Director for the Irrigation Association and developed many presentations at conferences all over the world.  Most recently, he consulted to a variety of clients to provide Turf grass and Irrigation programs.

The AGSA recruitment committee and the Board of Directors are very excited to have Dennis aboard and look forward to working with him as we transition into Barb’s retirement.
