2018 Presidents Letter

Dear ESAGCS Members,

The ESAGCS BOD has been working hard to get many great facilities and speakers on our 2018 schedule. We appreciate the continued support from our vendors, superintendent members, as well as the golf courses that will be hosting us this year! I’d like to formally introduce the newest member to the Eastern Shore Board of Directors, Mrs. Danielle Haley. She is taking over for Hope Palmer as the new Executive Administrative Assistant. Thank you Hope for your 9 1/2 years of dedication to the Eastern Shore Superintendents Association. We wish you all the best. The Board of Directors and myself are extremely excited that we found Danielle. She brings a lot of energy and is already underway. Here is a brief background of Danielle and her qualifications:

Danielle Haley graduated from the University of Delaware with her Bachelor of Science in Health & Physical Education and has a master’s degree in public health. She is married to Derek Haley, Golf Course Superintendent at Talbot Country Club and they have two young daughters, Emma and Lyla.

Please make her feel welcome and introduce yourself when you see her at the upcoming scheduled events.

We encourage our members to mark your calendars and sign up early, as our participation is key to making these events a success. Our annual Turf Conference will again be in Ocean City on November 6-8th and in order to keep things fresh, we have changed to a new venue! The 67th Street Holiday Inn Resort Hotel will be our host for another great lineup of speakers along with golf at Rum Pointe.

We have continued to fine-tune the registration process on our esagcs.org website. We encourage all of our members to register and sign up for monthly events through the website by using the PayPal link. The link will give you the option of signing up and entering your member information as a guest or you can register an account to use for future registration. We are also offering the membership prepay option for yearly dues and monthly events. If you are not able to attend a meeting, please consider sending your assistant. We want to get the future of our association involved.

If your employer can’t or won’t pay for your meeting attendance or membership, PLEASE send me an email or call me. We have many vendors who would be very happy to sponsor you. Your inquiries are confidential. My email is breil@gibsonisland.com and my cell is 410-507-2327.

Lastly, please fill out the new membership application with your dues. This will help us update our member directory.

See you at the 2018 meetings!

William Reil
ESAGCS President
