Since the inception of its “Give Back to Local Chapters” program, FMC GSS Professional Solutions has donated over $100,000 to GCSAA local chapters to invest in member education and to support local chapter initiatives. To kick-off the 2023 program, FMC will have multiple give back opportunities at the upcoming GCSAA Conference and Trade Show in Orlando, Florida, February 4-9, 2023.
FMC will be hosting a number of promotions at its booth (#2073) tied directly to supporting local chapters. FMC will be making a donation of fifty cents per yard based upon the collective amount of yards local chapter members drive. Superintendents can take a “Kalida Scream” selfie next in the FMC booth to be entered in a drawing for $1,000 to be donated to their local GCSAA chapter. FMC will also be making donations to the top five chapters based on total participation of each local chapter: first place ($1,500); second place ($1,000); third place ($750); and fourth and fifth places ($500 each).

The Oceanaire event is located at 9101 International Blvd., Suite 1002, and will include a 5-star menu, premium drinks, networking, and storytelling.
According to Mike Sisti, North American Marketing Director for FMC GSS Professional Solutions, “The ‘Give Back to Local Chapters’ program has been a hugely successful partnership with GCSAA. It has helped bolster participation in FMC True Champions resulting in multi tiered financial benefits for GCSAA local chapters. We are excited for 2023 to keep building on those success stories.”
