For those of you on the East Coast, don't forget that Club Industry East is coming up May 27-30 in Boston. If you haven't already registered for this convention and trade show, go to clubindustry.com/east to do so.

Because it's a regional conference, the environment is great for networking with people within your own area — either for new equipment, programming ideas, money saving ideas or possible job openings.

We're excited to feature this year a panel session on green issues. Several of the panelists for the session have real world experience with implementing green efforts at their facilities, and they can share with you that going green doesn't have to cost you more — it can actually save you money.
