GCSAA Field Staff Updates
Kevin Doyle, GCSAA
When I got my start in the industry there was no social media. There were no cell phones. The industry news was garnered through chapter meetings, newsletters, and the vendor network. Those in sales traveled the area, shared conversations, agronomic information, and jobs open or opening soon. I saw vendors as a critical tool to remain connected. Read More Here
Matt Falvo CGCS, Turning Stone Resort Casino
Turning Stone Comes Alive Under Falvo's Watchful EyeTo say that Matt has seen Turning Stone spring to life is no exaggeration. Matt has been working at the resort for 18 years and has been heavily involved in making the golf at Turning Stone what it is today. With a team that reaches more than 80 members during the peak season, Matt is in charge of overseeing the maintenance, care, and growth of the courses, as well as the overall landscaping and maintenance for the entire resort.

News from our Chapter Administrator
March 18, 2020
I have been your Chapter Administrator for a little over one month now and I have enjoyed it very much. Even in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and enforced shut downs, I am keeping a positive attitude and looking forward to a great golf season. We all have had to deal with cancellation of events, changing of policies and procedures, sometimes day by day or even minute by minute and even staffing changes. Hang in there, it will get better and life will go back to normal. I am sure we can all learn something from this experience.
I was supposed to attend the GCSAA Chapter Symposium in Lawrence, Kansas this week but unfortunately it was cancelled. I am hoping it will be re-scheduled. I was looking forward to making contacts with other chapter administrators and coming back with a lot of information and tools for our association. I will keep you posted.
As you already know, the Education Day scheduled to take place next week in Rochester has been cancelled. The Board is hopeful that we can re-schedule this event or something similar later this year. The business meeting and vote will take place as soon as we are able to get our membership together again. Please review the by-laws for the consolidated association and contact me if you have any questions or comments. We are ready to start this journey but we need to do it the right way and your vote is important to us.
Registration for membership has started, so please take the time to register online. We added the credit card feature to make the process easier for you and please make sure to update your information. If you know other superintendents that have not registered please encourage them to do so. Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have questions or need help with anything. That is why I am here.
I look forward to meeting you in the near future at an upcoming event.
Spring is here and the season will soon begin. Stay safe and healthy!
