Title of Presentation: Leading Out
Synopsis: Rhett Evans will share lessons learned during his two attempts to climb Denali, North America’s highest mountain peak. The first attempt was unsuccessful, but he reached the summit on the second. Hear how what he learned in both climbs, from teamwork to establishing routes in adverse conditions, translates into leading your team, your association, your profession, and the industry. Evans will also provide some timely updates on the state of GCSAA and key initiatives.
Speaker Bio: J. Rhett Evans is the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America’s chief executive officer. Evans joined the GCSAA team in July 2009 as chief operating officer and was promoted to CEO in January 2011. He is the eighth CEO since the association’s founding in 1926.
Evans is focused on expanding GCSAA's reach and influence to become the global leader in golf course management. Under Evans, GCSAA has elevated the superintendents’ and industry’s voices through advocacy efforts at the national and grassroots levels. In addition, through Evans’ leadership of GCSAA and its philanthropic organization, the GCSAA Foundation, the discussion of sustainability has progressed from theory to action. GCSAA is spearheading the development of centralized best management practices at the state and facility level.
GCSAA's enhancement of the vitality of the game of golf has been strengthened through Evans’ work with allied and industry organizations. Evans was instrumental in helping establish the strategic priorities of the American Golf Industry Coalition (AGIC), a coalition of golf’s leading organizations working together to communicate the game’s economic, charitable and environmental benefits to congressional leaders and local lawmakers. He served two terms as chairman of the board and is currently serving on the executive board of AGIC as well as serving on the board for the World Golf Foundation.
