This is my final Foreword Press article as the President of our Section.  Thank you for allowing me to serve.  Serving our association is a true pleasure and it has made me a better professional.  I have always served with one idea in mind: “If not me, then who? If not now, then when?” This is now the time for you to serve. Chapter elections are already underway and you can always find a seat on a section or chapter committee.

I would like to thank Jeff Ellison and the entire section staff for their unwavering commitment to our mission statement of “serving our members and growing the game”.  I have known Jeff for more than 20 years and I can tell you that he has always had the best interests of our Section, its business and our tournaments in mind.  Jeff is the kind of leader that will make a decision based on the facts and stand behind it.  He is steadfast in the rules of golf and the operation of our Section.

The PNW PGA staff serves you, the member, by providing governance, growth of the game activities, membership support and of course the enormous tournament operations component. Our staff does it flawlessly and at a highly professional level. Thank each and every one of them the next time you see them!

It has truly been my pleasure to serve you, thank you!  See you all very soon.  If I can ever do anything for you, I hope that you will never hesitate to ask!
