GCSAA Dues to Increase?

The GCSAA is a leading golf course management organization, which provides education, information and representation to 19,000 members in more than 72 countries.

The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) annual meeting (held in conjunction with the GCSAA Education Conference and Golf Industry Show) will include a proposal to raise dues for Class A and Superintendent Members (SM) by a total of $25 with a $15 increase for Class C members.

In the last four years the GCSAA has cut $5.4 million from its budget and has reduced its staff by 28 percent. Although the board is asking members to increase their support, the association has already sought industry support of GCSAA operations through an increase in various fees for exhibiting at the Golf Industry Show.

GCSAA member dues are tied to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) in a process created and voted on by members. The process calls for the association to consider a dues adjustment for Classes A, SM and C every two years as a means of ensuring a sustainable organization.

In addition to the CPI increase of $15 for Class A/SM and $10 increase for Class C members, the proposed member dues increase also includes $10 for Class A/SM and $5 for Class C that will be used to offset, among other things, an increase in premium expenses for the member term life insurance benefit.
