CERTIFICATION milestones Penny Mitchell, GCSAA senior manager of certification GCSAA honors certified superintendents GCSAA's certification program was celebrated during the 2013 GCSAA Education Conference and Golf Industry Show in San Diego. Implemented in September 1971, this program allows superintendents to be recognized for having voluntarily met superior standards of proficiency in golf course management through experience, education, testing and performance with the professional designation of CGCS. By meeting the stringent renewal requirements every five years, certified superintendents demonstrate their desire for continuing education and a commitment to their profession and to providing the best possible playing conditions at their facilities. ÒCelebrating Certification,Ó sponsored in partnership with Syngenta, provided the venue on Feb. 6 for recognition of all CGCSs. 40 years Garry N. Crothers 35-39 years Johnny R. Burns Michael R.
