  • Attend our lecture, lunch, and visit the Trade Show floor (runs from 9:00-5:00pm) - $50 registration fee to attend the Trade Show.
  • Attend the above mentioned events & additional lectures on Wednesday including:
  • 8:40-9:15 Keynote by Jim Brosnan - "Know your audience: Strategies for communicating your Pest Management Program with the Public."
  • 9:20-10:00 "After the Open: How it Went and What's Next" - The Country Club's GM- Kristen LaCount and Director of Grounds- David Johnson

  • Attending these additional lectures requires you to register for 1 day of the Turf Conference ($150)  But they would be well worth the time and investment. And that fee includes access to the Trade Show floor.

Or perhaps you have already registered for the Full Conference - that's great news.  So add our lecture and lunch to your time in Providence.


You must preregister for our event so we can get a headcount for lunch.

Ways to register:

The Chapter education session and lunch are free to all from NEGCOA member clubs

However, if you plan to attend portions of the larger Turf Conference -- then you should register with them.  Options for Wednesday -  Full Day registration ($150) or Trade Show only ($50) - Walk the Show Floor with your Superintendent as you get set to start the coming season!
