AGSA Mandate

In 1987 when the AGSA was formed it was determined that the mandate of the association was:

"to promote the position of the Golf Course Superintendent and to acheive more recognition for the Superintendent as an authority on golf course maintenance, cultural requirements of fine turfgrasses and its environment.  To promote fraternity, benevolence, justice and mutual understanding to and for all its members."

Even as the golf industry has grown, this mandate has remained as the guide in which the 6 member Board of Directors and the Executive Director  base their decisions for the direction of the association.  The strength of the association is the involvement of the membership as a whole in promoting the position of Superintendent.  The Golf Course Superintendent position continues to increase in value as Golf Clubs look for guidance in areas such as Environmental Stewardship, Water Conservation Issues, and Workplace Health & Safety.  The Alberta Golf Superintendents Association remains committed to ensuring that its members have the resources to lead their clubs in these areas.  Through strong input from its Membership, the AGSA will continue to promote the Golf Course Superintendent as a vital position in the Golf Course Industry.
