Due to the longtime support of Hunter Industries and John Deere, STMA has been able to provide funding to help its chapters deliver strong educational programs and grow membership. In 2014, Aquatrols and Turface joined the chapter network. Their support enabled STMA to award tens of thousands of dollars to improve our chapter network. These funds were used to bring in high quality speakers for chapter events, improve communications for chapter members by helping to subsidize the printing of chapter newsletters and promotional materials, and finance the development of chapter websites. Our newest sponsor, Pioneer Athletics, joined the chap- ter network in early 2015. According to Pioneer president Doug Schattinger supporting STMA chapters' initiatives helps to strengthen the entire industry. "Pioneer realizes that all agronomy is local and that belonging to an STMA chapter helps sports field managers do their jobs better. Individuals managing fields to their best ability helps advance everyone in the profession," says Schattinger. In addition to ground level funding for chapter advance- ment, funding from our sponsors helps to support the Chapter Officers' Training program, which is held annually during the STMA conference, provides important support for event liability and directors and officers liability insur- ance, makes possible the availability and enhancement of chapter booths and materials to help chapters grow mem- bership. Sponsors are committed to chapters' success
