The Gateway Chapter Sports Turf Managers Association is the chapter that represents the greater St. Louis area along with eastern Missouri and Western Illinois. Known as “GSTMA,” our chapter annually host a variety of activities such as educational field days, athletic field renovations, helping underfunded fields in need in the community and partnering in local and state green industry conferences. Funds that are raised from these events and our membership dues go to scholarships for chapter members to attend the National STMA Conference, helping fund local college and university turf clubs and making donations to ongoing university turf research.
