CLCA 2017 Annual Convention

Learn! Engage! Relax! Enjoy!

Come for a Southwest adventure! Mix play with work as this year's convention focuses on the inspirational and practical knowledge you need for cultivating your team and propelling your business ahead!


Kickoff speaker Jim Paluch will speak on "The Important Work We Do." We'll explore what our industry and businesses can mean to our communities. Everyone will leave inspired!

We'll explore an exciting new program that will give present and future employees the knowledge and skills to pass industry-recognized certification tests. Afterward, Judy Guido will detail how you can address key green industry concerns — labor recruitment, retention and motivation. Learn practical steps for how to "Find them. Hire them. Teach them. Keep them."


Part of cultivating your team is recognizing the dedication and commitment of team members. Plan on joining us at the Recognition Luncheon as we honor our green industry leaders.

At the General Membership Meeting, help grow the future of your professional association.


And, of course, there will be golf! The host for the Associate Member/LEAF tournament is the Arizona Grand Golf Course, a blend of traditional links with ultimate desert golf, suitable for players of all levels. Lush semitropical landscaping and an abundance of water highlight the front nine. The back nine offers a stark contrast and gives golfers a true desert-style experience.


The Trophy Awards dinner and ceremony will amaze you with a display of excellence in California landscaping.
