ASBA to Offer Technical Meeting

June 17, 2010

This year’s meeting includes state-of-the-art sessions on advanced technique in sports facility design, construction and materials, as well as more rudimentary “how to” programs directed at those who want a more hands-on approach. There also are multiple social events to facilitate networking, golf and tennis tournaments, meetings of board and committees, presentations of industry awards, exams for those interested in the ASBA’s professional certification program, and more.

The meeting will be beneficial to individuals in all segments of the industry. The American Sports Builders Association is an approved provider of continuing education programs to the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) through its Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System (LACES). Many of the sessions offered at this meeting are applicable for these continuing education credits.

“The ASBA Technical Meeting is one of our most popular gatherings, and this year, it’s more valuable and important than ever,” said Sam Fisher, CTB, chairman of ASBA. “It can be useful to everyone from designers to builders to suppliers. Whether a person owns a multinational corporation or simply works on the crew of a small company, this meeting has something for everyone. Nobody ever comes away empty-handed from the Technical Meeting.”

The location for this year’s meeting is Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, and the facility is the luxurious Marriott Sawgrass, which offers excellent accommodations, golf facilities that are unparalleled, and a host of other excellent amenities. The hotel will offer special discounted room rates to those who book directly and mention the ASBA Technical Meeting.
