2012 GCSAA Certification Committee

I just returned from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America headquarters in Lawrence, Kansas where I am again serving on the Certification Committee this year.  It is a great honor and a great amount of responsibility to serve on this committee which will make and recommend decisions on the future of the certification program.

The GCSAA national headquarters is a wonderful building filled with the history of the golf course maintenance industry and a lot of very dedicated, hard working people.  If you are a golf course superintendent you owe it to yourself and your industry to do two things before you retire, 1) volunteer to serve on a national, state or local board and 2) visit the headquarters in Lawrence to see the beginnings and the future of our industry.
This years Certificaiton Committee is chaired again by Mr. Rafael Barajas, CGCS of Hacienda Golf Club in La Habra Heights, CA
Other committee members are:
Mr. Tim Benedict, CGCS of Woodmere Club, Woodnere, NY
Mr. Bill Bieck, CGCS of Heritage Hills Golf Course, McCook, NE
Mr. Brett Hetland, CGCS of Brooks National Golf Club, Okoboji, IA
Mr. Kenneth Ingram, CGCS Retired of Silver Springs, MD
Mr. Paul McGinnis, CGCS of Eagles Nest Golf Club of Pebble Creek, Peoria, AZ
Mr. Jim Pavonetti, CGCS of Fairview Country Club, Greenwich, CT
Mr. Paul Pritchard, CGCS of Wiltwyck Golf Club, Cottekill, NY
Mr. Stephen Ravenkamp, CGCS Retired of Vain, OK
and Ms. Penny Mitchell, Senoir Manager of Certification for GCSAA, Lawrence, KS
