Carolinas' Online Conference

8:00AM - 8:00PM, 2 Nov - 18 Dec 2020

Carolinas’ Online Conference - Registration Opens Friday 25 September

Liberty, SC - Nearly three dozen golf course superintendent associations across the U.S. and the British International Golf Greenkeepers Association are partnering in a marathon online education conference this fall devised in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Using a tailored Zoom platform, Conference Comes to You presents 30 two-hour seminars – scheduled one a day – over 30 days starting November 2.

Registration in the program presented by the Carolinas Golf Course Superintendents Association opens at 10am EST, Friday, September 25 at www.conferencecomestoyou.org.

The online conference, which has a week off over Thanksgiving, takes the place of the Carolinas GCSA’s annual conference and trade show in Myrtle Beach, SC which is the largest regional event for superintendents in the U.S.

As official partners in Conference Comes to You, participating chapters earn discounted pricing for members – a break from $70 per seminar to $40 – and will receive a share of each member registration fee. Each attendee also has the chance to share in $30,000 of guaranteed cash prizes ranging from $2,500 to $100. Members qualify for one entry with each seminar they take.

“We’re thrilled to have so many chapters joining us. This platform benefits everyone involved, and the more people who participate the more benefit there will be for everyone,” Carolinas GCSA president, Brian Stiehler, CGCS, MG from Highlands Country Club in Highlands, NC, says.

“We see many visitors from across the country and overseas at our traditional conference and show each year. So, in these extraordinary times, when we can’t be face to face, it made sense for our conference to go ‘see’ them.”

Stiehler stressed his association’s gratitude for the financial backing of dozens of industry partners, including longtime education partner, Syngenta, and prize package partners, John Deere Golf, Revels Turf and Tractor, Greenville Turf and Tractor, Toro, Smith Turf and Irrigation, Jacobsen and TSP Turf.

“This is an incredible show of support from companies we have worked with for years and in many cases, generations,” Stiehler says. “That they have stepped up to help superintendents continue their professional development in times like these speaks volumes.”
