Save the Dates – ample continuing education opportunities are just around the corner October 15, 2012 By Chris Hartwiger and Patrick O’Brien

As the weather changes, the opportunities for learning move indoors from the golf course to classrooms.  Make plans to attend one or more turf conferences this season. 

With the completion of the Alabama Turfgrass Association’s Turfgrass Conference in early October, the 2012-2013 conference season is well underway. We always look forward to the opportunity to see old friends and are grateful any time we are asked to give a presentation. Most importantly, we look forward to learning from others. 

We hope you have made plans to attend one or more turfgrass conferences this year. For your convenience, we have outlined below a few possibilities in the Southeast Region.
