    Know Your Audience: Strategies for Discussing Pest Management

    Jim Brosnan, Ph.D. • University of Tennessee

    Public pressure regarding pesticide use has increased to the point where many athletic field managers are prohibited from using pesticides all together.  Many feel comfortable discussing the merits of pesticide use to others within the industry but fail to confidently discuss the topic with the public. Jim Brosnan travels from Tennessee to provide NESTMA members with valuable training on how to effectively engage in pesticide use discussions with those outside the green industry.

    This is a great new chance for NESTMA members to meet, learn and network after hours.  Make connections – old and new – during the social hour, learn from a thought-provoking presentation, earn valuable CEU credit, and enjoy a delicious dinner at a popular steak house
