Benefits of Membership with the Mid-Atlantic Association of Golf Course Superintendents
Stay in touch with your fellow superintendents with the quarterly publication of Turfgrass Matters.
The Mid-Atlantic Association of Golf Course Superintendents (MAAGCS) has several meetings throughout the year that include an informative education speaker. Education topics range from technical turfgrass subjects to business management to personal self-improvement. The demands and technical aspects of the golf course superintendent’s profession are changing rapidly. As a superintendent, continuing education is vital to your future success.
MAAGCS meetings and events provide a good opportunity to meet informally with your professional peers and gather important information. Superintendents and assistant superintendents share information, solve problems and learn more about the local golf course industry by attending MAAGCS meetings. The value of your dues could easily be recovered by finding one inexpensive solution to a problem you are having on your golf course while attending a MAAGCS meeting.
MAAGCS offers help to those members who have lost their jobs or are looking for advancement through our E-mail mailing and web site. Members who have lost their jobs will be updated with the first notice of available openings by an MAAGCS employment representative.
Updates from National
GCSAA update information is provided to the MAAGCS membership through Turfgrass matters, an E-blast. Information about GCSAA’s conference and show, annual election and upcoming seminars in the region are also highlighted at MAAGCS meetings.
Camaraderie and Golf Events
Participating in the MAAGCS supports your profession on a local basis and provides an opportunity to make professional acquaintances in the local golf course industry. Golf outings organized by MAAGCS provide more than an enjoyable release from the tensions of everyday work. Playing golf at local courses stimulates discussion and the sharing of ideas about golf course management techniques and golf course maintenance problem solving.
MAAGCS membership is tied to your email address, not your name. If you are a former member or have attended MAAGCS events but have changed jobs and emails or no longer have access to the email address you used previously, please notify firstname.lastname@example.org and we can update your account. Please refrain from adding a new record with a new email address; we must avoid duplicate records in order to manage a clean membership system. Thank you!
