Believe it or not, it’s fall conference time again! On behalf of the Eastern Shore Association of Golf Course Superintendents, we want you to know we truly appreciate all the support you have given our association and its activities over the years. Our association continues to remain strong and this year we have been very successful with our efforts at monthly meetings, fundraising, and education. The ESAGCS board and conference committee hopes that with your continued support, our association will continue to serve the industry and our members by providing a memorable experience and educational conference again this November.
This year will be our thirteenth anniversary of the annual ESAGCS Fall Turfgrass Conference and once again, we have another outstanding line up of speakers. The country’s top turf industry researchers, consultants and more fill out the schedule. The conference will be held at a new venue in Dewey Beach, DE, November 5th – 7th, 2019 at the Hyatt Place. We are excited about this new venue and when combined with our educational line up, you won’t want to miss being a part of this event!
The ESAGCS conference committee once again requests your support and participation in the 2019 Eastern Shore Fall Turfgrass Conference. The board and membership truly understand that without your involvement this conference would not be possible and we sincerely appreciate your sponsorship. For the first time since 2014, we are raising the rate for our Conference Presenting Sponsor level; all other levels will remain the same. Due to rising costs of speakers and our commitment to keep costs as low as possible for attendees while providing as much value as possible, the conference committee agreed that it was essential to raise the rate for this critical sponsorship level. Additionally, you will see some changes in new sponsorship opportunities and a removal of some old sponsorship opportunities. The following pages outline the sponsorship opportunities in more detail.
Once again, thank you for your continued support of the Eastern Shore Association of Golf Course Superintendents. If you have any questions or feedback regarding the 2019 Eastern Shore Fall Turfgrass Conference, please contact Joe Perry or Danielle Haley by email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
