2012 Regional Conference set for Cincinnati June 26-27
The 2012 Regional Conference, June 26-27 in Cincinnati, OH hosted by STMA with the support of several chapters including the host, Ohio, and Illinois, KAFMO (Pennsylvania), Kentucky, Michigan, Tennessee Valley, and Virginia chapters, is a must attend educational event for anyone who deals with athletic turf. While focusing on sports turf managers, STMA encourages attendance by crew, coaches, parks and recreation professionals, athletic directors, school business officials, and others, and will be providing education for all levels of sports turf experience.
Attendees will be treated to more than ten hours of education presented by nationally recognized sports turf researchers and academics, as well as professional, college and high school sports turf managers from the region and across the country. They will lend their expertise to presentations and panel discussions on natural turfgrass, irrigation, small-engine repair, synthetics, weather, safety, pesticide management and managing bermudagrass. There will also be behind-the-scenes tours of Great American Ballpark and Paul Brown Stadium, home to the Reds and Bengals, respectively. There will be an exhibition held at the Paul Brown Stadium on June 27 as well.
Registration will include all education, entrance to the exhibition and most meals. The group will also be taking in a night at the ballpark, watching the Reds take on the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night.
Registration costs for the event start at $95 for a national member of STMA or one of the participating chapters and $125 for a non-member. Group rates start when registering two people at the same time. Tickets to the Reds game may be purchased at the STMA group rate of $14 per ticket, but must be purchased in advance. See the chart for more information on registration rates for the event and ticket prices.
