The Canadian Golf Superintendents Association is joining forces with the Ontario Golf Superintendents Association this winter for a joint conference in Toronto.

The Canadian Golf Course Management Conference and Ontario Golf Course Management Conference will be held Jan. 18-20 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel. As international travel requirements remain uncertain, the two-and-a-half-day Canadian Golf Course Management Conference will focus on Canadian content and will provide attendees with their provincial pesticide recertification or IPM points, CGSA CEC points and GCSAA education points.

The conference and trade show will also adhere to current COVID-19 health and safety protocols as required by the City of Toronto and the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, and attendees will be notified of all protocols in advance of the conference.

Registration for the event will open on Oct. 12, and attendees can register at golfsupers.com.

“We are happy that we’ve been able to come to this partnership agreement with the Ontario Golf Superintendents’ Association,” CGSA president John Scott said. “It’s an excellent collaboration between the provincial and national organizations. Working together for the betterment of the memberships and the industry is of utmost importance.”

Al Schwemler, OGSA president, said, “The OGSA is equally pleased to partner with the CGSA to bring our members and superintendents, assistants, and technicians from across Canada, a one-stop shop for networking, professional development, and mingling with suppliers to find out what is new and exciting on the trade show floor.”

Further event details will be released in the coming weeks. Anyone wishing to participate as a presenter, exhibitor, or sponsor of the 2022 CGCMC in partnership with the OGSA is urged to contact the CGSA.
