Education Selection

2009 Chapter Education Selection Opens. Learn more...

2008 requests are still available.

Selecting educational programs for your chapter members is an easy process using GCSAA's searchable program library, complete with program descriptions.

Choosing programs and dates

Chapters may select programs from the following:

  • Chapter-hosted regional seminar program
  • Webcasts

Programs will be held Jan. 1 - Dec. 31. With no formal deadine for submittal for education selection(s), you may submit your selection(s) when it's convenient and timely for you. However, for seminar selections, GCSAA must require at least a 12-week window prior to your program in order to confirm the instructor, secure meeting space and market the seminar appropriately. With regard to instructors, please keep in mind that instructor availability is on a first-come, first-served basis - early submittal is crucial in reserving the seminar your members want!

Selecting the right programs

Select the program that meets your chapter's education needs. Not sure where to start? GCSAA has created the following tools to help.


Once you've decided which program(s) will suit the needs of your members, submit the corresponding selection form(s). For more information regarding seminar selection, please contact Dee Hoffmeier at 800-472-7878, ext. 4474. For webcast information, please contact Lisa Wick at ext. 3649.

2009 Chapter Education Selection Opens in July

The 2009 Chapter Education Selection will begin with an e-mail to all affiliated chapter presidents, education liaisons and executive directors/secretaries on July 16.

Don't forget, in addition to chapter-hosted seminars, chapters may also select ON DEMAND webcasts. For a chapter fee of $300, your chapter can choose from more than 80 ON DEMAND webcast titles. Each member in attendance will receive 0.2 education points. The July 16 e-mail will include a link to the GCSAA Education Library where you'll find both ON DEMAND webcasts and chapter-hosted seminars.

All of the details will be outlined in the selection process, so watch for your e-mail notification in July. If you have any questions regarding seminar selection, please contact Dee Hoffmeier at 800-472-7878, ext. 4474. For webcast information, please contact Lisa Wick at ext. 3649.

Chapter education opportunities are still available for 2008 as well. So, contact Dee or Lisa today to reserve the program of your chapter's choice.
