GCBAA Summer Meeting Postponed to August 2021
The Golf Course Builders Association of America Meetings and Education Committee’s along with staff and the Board of Directors have been working with the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina on plans for our upcoming August Summer Meeting. We had planned to host the event so long as we could host a quality event for attendees with safety as the highest priority for our members, guests, and the Biltmore Estate staff.
North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper announced yesterday the state's plans to continue with Safer at Home Phase 2 protocols through July 17. The decision was based on state trends of positive testing of COVID-19. Even if Phase 3 protocols are adopted in mid-July, there is not enough time for venues that can host large gatherings to be prepared to host the quality event we strive to accomplish.
After careful consideration, the GCBAA Board of Directors has announced the postponement of the August 2020 meeting. Rather than hosting a Summer Meeting this year, the Board will look at other smaller regional events the remainder of the year depending on opportunities and venues. Mark your calendars for August 2 – 5, 2021 at the Biltmore Estate, Asheville, North Carolina as the host for the next Summer Meeting.
Additionally, plans are underway for the 2021 Golf Industry Show in Las Vegas January 30 – February 4, 2021. This event will kick off our associations 50th Anniversary!
The Board of Directors along with the Certification Board of Governors will be announcing the recertification criteria for Certified Members along with members that are required to attend an annual GCBAA event. Rest assure hardships will be considered with extensions based on the challenge this global pandemic has caused. Your safety and health are our number one priority, please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you and your company.
