Happy New Year

07 Jan 2011 3:31 PM | Ray Mattingly (Administrator)
I know it's happy because 2010 is over and hopefully the drought along with it. I would imagine most of us will be spending a good deal of 2011 correcting the damage done by that extraordinary period of dry and hot weather.


The Indiana General Assembly will be starting its long session later this week and we will be watching for any legislation affecting the lawn and landscape industry. Our legislative affairs firm, The Corydon Group, does expect to see bills introduced affecting phosphate fertilizer use and immigration reform. Both of these issues are important to various parts of our industry and we certainly will be there to offer our views on the potential impact of new legislation.

The Green Industry Expo is scheduled for January 18-19 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. This is always a good opportunity to catch up on new products and equipment in the green industry and I hope you will take the opportunity to attend. Please contact the Midwest Regional Turf Foundation for registration information and stop by to visit with IPLLA in Booth #112.

Once again, IPLLA will be holding our annual series of Regional Meetings around Indiana during February. This year we are featuring Dr. Cliff Sadof and Dr. Jana Beckerman of Purdue who will team teach a full interactive program on the diagnostic process and development of management programs based upon such a process. Continuing Credit Hours (CCH's) are available in Categories 2, 3A, 3B, 5, 6, 7A, and RT. Dates and times are listed below. Please look for registration information in the mail later this month. You may register by return mail online at www.iplla.com

2011 IPLLA Regional Meetings

February 15 - Primo West in Plainfield
February 16 - Holiday Inn Select in Seymour
February 22 - Marriott Hotel in Fort Wayne
February 24 - Radisson Hotel in Merrillville

All current members of the IPLLA should have received your 2011 Dues Statement in early December. If you have not already done so, take time now to renew your membership. We need everyone involved in the effort to both maintain our ongoing involvement in legislative affairs as well as the high quality of our various educational events.

We'll look forward to seeing you soon and good luck as you prepare for the upcoming season.
