Coming Events Summary - May 2021

For more than a year now, online and virtual experiences have dominated the education and meeting scene but we are now seeing the potential to return to some form of normal as various organizations begin announcing plans for in-person events and meetings. 

Of course, all of these are entirely dependent on respective PHO restrictions at the time and while it's certainly a postive step forward, don't mark your wall calendars with permanent ink just yet!  You can bet we'll see online offerings integrated into in-person education programs and even hybrid events in an effort to reach as many participants as possible, especially those in remote areas.  We will continue to do our best to provide status updates on all things related to turf management, including our own WCTA offerings, as they come together.
