In preparation for the 2014 Annual General Meeting and the upcoming season the PEIGA is seeking nominations to fill vacancies on its Board of Directors. We ask all courses to review the following Board positions and submit the names of individuals who you feel have the skills and attributes necessary for the role and would be interested in contributing to the growth of golf in the province.
The PEIGA Board is a working Board and members are expected to work closely with the Executive Director in order to complete specific tasks and duties while reporting progress regularly to the rest of the Board.
In order to serve on the Board an individual has to be a member in good standing of Golf Canada and the PEIGA.
The names that you submit will be forwarded to our Nominating Committee and a representative from the PEIGA will contact them to discuss the position best suited to their interests.
We strongly encourage all member courses to nominate individuals for these positions so that the Board will be comprised of representatives from as many courses and areas of the province as possible.
Nominations must be submitted to the P.E.I.G.A. by 5:00pm Saturday, April 5th.
Director Course & Member Relations – this Director is responsible for maintaining and enhancing open communication with both member courses and individuals ensuring that issues or concerns are brought to the Board’s attention for appropriate action.
Director Golf Services – this Director oversees Course Rating, Handicap Services and Rules Officials including the recruitment and training of volunteers. This position also ensures that the P.E.I.G.A./Golf Canada data base is maintained and up to date.
Director Women’s Golf Development – this is a new position that has been created with a view to assist member courses in finding ways to attract more women to the game as well as new events designed to introduce those now playing the game to competition in a fun and casual way.
Chairperson Junior Fund – through a generous contribution made by Errol and Edith Nicholson the PEIGA has established a new Junior Golf Fund to financially assist juniors in their participation in the game.
The Chairperson of this Fund will be charged with reviewing all applications for funding and submitting recommendations on each to the Board for consideration. The Chairperson will develop and lead a plan to solicit ongoing contributions to maintain and grow the Fund.
