SFMA’s Town Hall meetings bring members of the industry together to learn about how sports field managers are setting their fields up for success during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The session features a panel of sports field professionals discussing the strategies they have been using to keep their fields healthy during a time of labor and budget shortages. The goal is to share information and learn in real-time how everyone is adapting to this changing environment.
