For Immediate Release
August 9, 2018

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - The Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) is pleased to announce the launch of their new Tiered Membership Model.  Effective immediately, existing members have the option to “Remain the Same” or “Raise their Game”, while new members can select whichever of the three Memberships best meets their own needs.

“We’re taking their membership to the next level”, explains CGSA Executive Director Jeff Calderwood. “By adding more benefits and then segmenting those services into three packages, we’re providing our members with more customized services. Not all superintendents operate on the same budgets or have the same priorities. So the CGSA has diversified our value proposition to appeal to those who are more budget conscious at the same time as offering two new options for those who prefer more benefits.”

The CGSA has branded these three options as Essential, Premium and Ultimate Memberships, with $300 difference in dues amount between each category. CGSA President Kendall Costain, MS notes that, “All three remain very affordable, with dues priced well below what golf pros, club managers, course owners, and the amateur golf associations require. And more importantly, we have substantially increased the member benefits across all three options. On behalf of our Board of Directors, I encourage every superintendent and all related stakeholders to take advantage of these new opportunities.”  

Those who choose the Essential Membership will enjoy the “Best Price” and receive access to a $2,400 suite of benefits. The Premium Membership will upgrade their entitlement to $4,500 and provide the “Best Value”.  And the Ultimate Membership, positioned as “Best Overall”, further enhances the value proposition to $6,000 including substantial discounts applied to CGSA events and employment referral services, as well as several unique value-added services and immediate access to any new CGSA benefits in development.

Calderwood summarizes the vision, “We’re not only providing better service to each member but, by growing the Membership of the CGSA, we will be able to deliver much more effectively on additional member benefits while supporting the superintendent profession and overall golf industry more effectively.”
