*GCSAA pre-negotiates speakers' fees. GCSAA will advise the chapter of the GCSAA negotiated fee, once the chapter is accepted in the program.
**GCSAA will publish these offerings in the Professional Development Resource (PDR) and with the regional seminar offerings in the December issue of Golf Course Management magazine, and on the GCSAA Web site, provided that the necessary information is made known prior to publishing deadlines.
***While there is no deadline to make a request, chapters should keep in mind that these are competitive programs. Early submittal is crucial to confirm the speaker and the seminar your chapter members want! Webcasts require at least 7 business days notice.
****Certificates are provided through individual member request only. For webcasts, certificates are available online after education points are posted.
