If you are a PDGA member, make sure to vote in the election that is going on right now. There are three board positions up for vote and SoCal’s Logan Turner is one of the candidates for an open position. The PDGA conducts its elections on-line, so you should have already received an e-mail with a link to the ballot. If you haven’t seen it, check your spam filter.
A Board of Directors is a requirement for non-profit status and is mandated by the PDGA bylaws. In addition to semi-annual summit meetings, the Board and staff conduct monthly teleconference calls and ongoing communication to accomplish required business. Some of the Board’s main activities include: setting PDGA policies; hiring and supervision of an Executive Director responsible for headquarters, staff, and ongoing operations; financial management including annual budget; identification of responsible future Board members; and representing the membership’s visions for the future of the sport and the association. It would be nice to have a SoCal perspective on the board to represent our perspective on these issues.
Suzette Simons is the incumbent in our SoCal Regional Coordinator position, and is up for re-election as well. The Regional Coordinator is the key link in getting our local tournaments on the PDGA schedule and minimizing scheduling conflicts with Central Valley and NorCal events.
