The program honors independent garden center owners and managers.
The American Nursery & Landscape Association (ANLA) and Bayer Advanced have announced the winners of the Bayer Advanced Scholars program for the 2010 Management Clinic.
In this second year of the program, the 25 winning, independent garden center owners and managers will receive a full registration to the ANLA Management Clinic, a Muggets networking badge and a private evening networking reception with ANLA leadership.
“Bayer Advanced's success is closely linked to the success of our customer base in the independent garden centers," said Chris Bremen, head of marketing for Bayer Advanced, states. "ANLA’s Management Clinic helps build successful garden centers. So this is a natural fit.”
Now in its 38th year, the ANLA Management Clinic will be held in Louisville Ky., Jan. 31-Feb. 3.
“This year our programming focuses on both the very real challenges presented by the economy and begins to look at what new opportunities might emerge on the front-edge of the recovery,” said Programming Committee co-chair Mark Sandstrum, Sickles Market.
