At a recent Conference hosted by the Sports Turf Managers Association (STMA) in the USA, Australia gained representation on the STMA-International committee with the appointment of Evergreen Turf’s Chris Chapman.
Chris is well known to many in the Australian Turf Industry in the role as national president of Sports Turf Association, Australia. On his acceptance of this honorary position Chris was effusive of the similarities in direction and purpose between STA, Australia and STMA.
“It was a logical connection as the Sports Turf Associations throughout Australia have a strong philosophy of networking, skills sharing, education and training, innovation and technology, and supporting a vibrant progressive industry just as do STMA.”
The library of knowledge between the 2 associations is an invaluable asset of information, education and resources now available to all members of STA-Australia.
