Request For Proposals: Green Industry Education Workshops

Speaker speaking

The California Landscape Contractors Association is looking for a high-energy speaker to present a series of green industry business development workshops statewide.

Our goal is to present six roughly identical six-hour workshops statewide, similar in nature to our wildly popular 2018 workshops, How To Make Money With Your Landscape Business. Workshops will ideally be held in February – April, 2020.

We expect each workshop to attract 20 to 30 green industry professionals, predominately owners and senior managers of landscape companies.


Potential topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Recession Proofing Your Company
  • So, You’re Sustainable, Now What?
  • Employee Recruitment & Retention
  • How To Make Money With Your Landscape Business
  • Digital Marketing

The above are just examples. CLCA’s Education Committee is open to any proposed business development workshops that promotes green industry professionalism.


We hope to offer workshops in these areas:

  • Kern County
  • Los Angeles or Orange County
  • Sacramento
  • San Diego
  • San Francisco or San Jose
  • San Luis Obispo

CLCA currently has a great deal of flexibility with specific dates and is interested in working with a speaker to develop mutually agreeable dates, ideally in February – April, 2020.


CLCA will be responsible for:

  • Selecting and making arrangements with venues, after confirming speaker availability
