What's New 
New to STMA's Annual Conference: Topgolf! Replacing the traditional-style Golf Tournament, the SAFE Foundation is happy to welcome attendees  to sign up for their Topgolf Event. Sign up with your registration in October! 

We are currently working on getting another hotel block for the conference. Please call if you have any questions. 

STMA has contracts with specific hotels for our annual conference. We publish those hotels' names and reservation processes on our website. We do not engage telemarketers to call you to "reserve" a room. This is a sham.

 Environmental Facility Certification Now Available!

STMA has rolled out its certification program for facilities. 
Learn more about how to achieve it here.


STMA's Curriculum is Now Available

STMA has developed a unique online training course, Introduction to Turfgrass Science. This self-paced training will provide a good refresher for anyone who manages sports fields. It is especially pertinent for new crew members or for those who have not been formally educated in turfgrass science. For more information, or to order, click here.
