Would you like to be nominated for the SCPGA Board of Directors

If you are a PGA member in good standing, the Section leadership encourages you to consider running for an at-large position on the SCPGA Board of Directors. Three three-year term positions are available.  As a successful member of the board, one should be energetic, enthusiastic, interested and self-motivated. The experience as a Director will have a positive impact on both you and your career. The benefits of participation on the board includes working alongside and sharing ideas with some of the most influential members and leaders in our Association.

The Board of Directors meet five times a year and each member may be assigned to participate with, or chair a specific standing committee or task group.  The Section conducts three membership meetings during the year including the Spring Meeting, the Summer Meeting and the Annual Meeting that the board members are required to attend.  An active board member can count on a commitment of approximately 15-20 days of service for a typical year including board meetings, conference calls, membership meetings, committee meetings and other special gatherings.

If you wish to be considered for one of the three at-large openings, please fully review the Board of Directors Description. To become a candidate, submit the Board of Director’s application, and a brief statement of intent in your email to Sharon Curfman at scurfman@pgahq.com or by regular mail to the Section office:
