The Sports Turf Association is a national association of professionals with a presence throughout the nation.

One of the most important roles of the association is to provide members with information about turf management, growth, installation and new developments in the field, including irrigation and other related principles. To achieve these goals, the Sports Turf Association provides a range of educational and informational opportunities, including workshops, seminars and conferences held across the nation for professional development and adherence to industry standards.
Members of the association are also able to enjoy numerous other benefits, in addition to access to information and educational opportunities. For instance, members are eligible to receive several key industry publications for further information. Members are also eligible for discounts on seminar and workshop attendance. Perhaps the most important benefit is the ability to network with some of the most highly trained professionals in the nation.
