44 SportsTurf | June 2017 RECOGNIZING OUR MEMBERS B efore the ubiquitous Internet, those who attained a college degree or followed a specifi c training program automatically joined their profession's association. Membership in an organization was the only way to connect with your peers. As resources, information and interaction with like-minded professionals became easily attainable electronically, many associations suffered a decline in membership. Not so with STMA! Although STMA has not grown by leaps and bounds, it has maintained a steady membership with incremental growth. For that we are exceedingly grateful to you, our members. Members tell us, colloquially and through surveys, that the primary reason they join STMA is for the networking, followed by access to information and resources. Thus, we salute all of you for your commitment to improving your knowledge base through continuous learning from your peers and from STMA's offerings. Do you know sports turf managers who should be members? Encourage them to join, and remember fi rst time members receive a complimentary conference registration. You, as the person who referred them, will receive $100 credit per referral to use on STMA services, such as membership renewal and conference registration fees.
