Dear Fellow EWGA Members –
As outgoing President of this diverse
and vibrant Central PA Chapter, I want to take this opportunity to thank the
Directors and all our members who so willingly chaired committees, attended
meetings and embraced the EWGA values throughout this past year. It was
through your efforts and love for the game, that you have helped us attain one
of the primary goals of the EWGA – to engage other women to learn about, play
and enjoy golf for both business and pleasure.
Because of your efforts, I am proud
to report that our Chapter achieved the goals established in the 2015 Chapter
Playbook we developed earlier this year – including a number of other notable
accomplishments which included, but are not limited to:
development of our enhanced Chapter Website thanks to the expertise of Rachel
Allen – as well as developing our ability to make on-line payments with the able
assistance of Deb Smoluk.
planning and delivery of our Chapter’s Member & Recruitment Events by Chris
Maffey, who has always extended her willingness to provide us with fun off
season events and membership socials!
The hard work of Samantha Winters who, as our Events
Coordinator, worked with our various golf venues to schedule our Chapter’s golf
events during the 2015 season. The board is happy to know that Samantha
will continue in this position for another year.
Thanks also to our Member-at-Large, Christine Corrigan, who has always been present to offer her expertise, sharing ideas and guidance – and to the wonderful memories created by the Sunday Travel League arranged by Colleen Salvaggio
Special thanks goes out to all our League Captains for their organizational skills that helped make the Leagues flow effortlessly this year, including the universal/roving substitutes! What a success! Thanks to everyone!
We are also privileged
to have Chris Maffey as our first Chapter member to win in her flight at the
Nationals – as well as to Theresa Green, who won two raffles only to request
they be donated back to the Chapter so they could be given out at some future
chapter events. Theresa has also been responsible for our Chapter’s
communications, including submitting our minutes to Headquarters and keeping
tabs of new members and membership renewals.
Over the past year it
has been my pleasure to serve as President of this Chapter – and in particular
– to get to know and work with each of you. I will always remember
and cherish the friendliness and support you provided to help make this season
a success! I am particularly pleased with the success our Chapter had hosting the
District Semi-Finals – during which I learned so much about the professional
aspects of the game! I am truly grateful to have been given the
opportunity to be part of this exceptional organization – and I thank you for
Looking forward – I
would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to in-coming President, Kim Massa
and newly-elected board members – and wish them all a highly successful 2016
Thank you all, once
again, for permitting me this privilege to work with, and get to know you! Without you we could never have accomplished
all that we did!
2015 President, Central PA Chapter EWGA
