PGMS Seeks Seeds for Growth

It's growing season, and the Professional Grounds Management Society (PGMS) is asking its members to help plant the seeds for future growth.

The Society's President, Milton "Dusty" Hallman, a Certified Grounds Manager (CGM) and grounds manager of the Sylvan Abbey Memorial Park in Clearwater, Fla., has written to the members of PGMS asking each of them to provide one suggestion on ways to enhance the value of membership in PGMS.

"Like any dynamic non-profit member organization, PGMS' greatest resource lies with its members," pointed out Hallman. "We're simply taking this opportunity to tap into this resource. I hope we are overwhelmed with suggestions."

PGMS is a professional group dedicated to enhancing the image of grounds professionals who, according to Hallman, "are deserving of greater recognition and advancement."

"In keeping with its focus on leadership and professionalism, PGMS has a new theme," he said. "It's 'We Grow People', and what better time to emphasize this than during the growing season."

In his letter to the members, Hallman also reminded them of the 2003 PGMS Education Conference and Green Industry Expo (GIE), which will take place November 5-8 in St. Louis.
