Your Section Board of Directors completed the winter business meeting this past month. There are some changes coming to programs that we offer you as members. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Your Board deliberated for a long time about dress code. The discussion was around meeting dress code only and, after much discussion, we approved that golf attire will be the dress code for all meetings in the Chapters and the Section. There will be events such as the Hall of Fame and Awards Ceremony that will require professional business attire but going forward, unless specified, you may wear golf attire for meetings and education. Ultimately, the Board made a decision on what they thought was in the best interest of the 1,200 members of our Section. I want to be clear that this decision was discussed heavily and was not taken lightly. I applaud the Board for its frank discussions and ultimately its decision.

Two other programs that will see change in 2018 are the Membership Directory and the PNWPGA Annual. We constantly evaluate our programs and offerings, and the time has come to adapt these mainstays of our operations to current technologies. The Membership Directory will become an app that will be easily accessible from your phone, tablet or computer. The PNWPGA Annual will become an electronic presentation hosted on our website, where it will continue to celebrate our tournament champions and preserve our historical record in a professional way. I can say that both long-time sponsors of the directory and the annual have shifted their support to other Section programs and we appreciate their continued support. As we start the New Year, please take time to thank all those who support us. Click here for a list of our sponsors.

I hope all of you were able to enjoy the downtime with your families. I hope that you had a Merry Christmas and that you will have a prosperous New Year! If there is anything I can do for you I hope that you won’t hesitate to ask!
