The 36th Annual Spring Training Conference kicked off at Hilton Fort Collins on Tuesday, March 5, 2024 with a very imperative legislative update from Jay Hicks. Hicks and Associates, through GreenCO, continue to help preserve access to essential tools to continue to keep Coloradans safe through quality landscape and lawn care services. Dana Karcher, our “Tree Note Speaker” followed with her presentation, “More Money, More Trees, More Professionals!” We had nearly 300 in attendance and twenty-four exhibitors. Many thanks to SavATree for the title sponsor, DBC Irrigation Supply as the break sponsor, and the following event sponsors: Wilbur-Ellis, Secura Insurance Companies, Western Group Inc, Helena Agri-Enterprises, LLC, Nutrient Ag Solutions, and Vermeer.

We are thrilled to announce the recipient of this year’s CALCP Golden Gun Award, Terry Dwyer! Terry’s dedication to the green industry over the past 30 years is truly remarkable.
