Tennessee Turfgrass Association Brings Membership Back Together for an In-Person Event to Kick Off 2022
Tennessee Turfgrass Association’s 56th Annual Conference and Trade Show was held January 10 – 12 at the Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro. After hosting a virtual conference in 2021, it was a priority of the TTA Board of Directors to bring our membership back together for an in-person event to kick off 2022.
Much thoughtful planning was put into coming back and more than 400 turf professionals from across the state were registered for the event! As always, our Education Director, Dr. Jim Brosnan, put together a phenomenal lineup of speakers covering topics from infield mixes to GDD and Zoysiagrass greens. In non-technical sessions, attendees learned why “It’s Good to be in the Tennessee Green Industry” directly from those who lead at UT. Kraig Kann brought an impactful perspective to the Professional Development session with a simple question: Can You Get Our Attention?
Opportunities for networking were plenty: the Awards luncheon on Monday; Tuesday kicked off with prayer and fellowship, followed by an afternoon on the trade show floor and the Top Golf event in the evening. As always, CEUs, pesticide certification and examination were available for those who needed them.
