2013 Chapter Delegate Meeting Review

Delegates provided feedback on GCSAA's future and met candidates for the 2014 board

Representatives from GCSAA's affiliated chapters came together Oct. 1-2 for the 2013 Chapter Delegates Meeting in Lawrence, Kan. During the event, delegates were updated on GCSAA programs and initiatives and were introduced to the candidates for the 2014 board of directors. The briefings on current programs included an introduction to the 2014 GCSAA business plan, which was the starting point for a definite focus on the future throughout the rest of the event. To begin the process, attendees were shown a video featuring GCSAA members representing different membership classes, years of service, ownership structure and budget size. Extensive breakout sessions then delved deeper into how membership classes and professional development opportunities should look in the future.

The meeting also saw some logistical changes, as the event was held entirely in Lawrence for the first time in more than a decade. In addition, the meeting took place on consecutive weekdays instead of the traditional weekend schedule.
