A Message from the President

President's Tee Box

Dear EWGA Members and Friends,

School is starting again and the summer is winding down, but we still have a full plate of golf and social activities coming up in the next few months.  Be sure to check out our calendar of events for all our activities.

We are currently looking for nominees for the 2016-2017 EWGA Louisville Board of Directors. There are three official board positions up for election:  President (one year term), Member Services (two year term) and Member Recruitment (two year term).  We are also looking for two volunteers to assist the Board as Board Secretary and Social Media Captain.  See the full call for nominations below in the "What's Hot" section of this page.

We want to make EWGA fun for everyone and your involvement helps!  Serving on the board or helping out at an event is a great way to get involved.  Also, invite someone to join you at one of our events.  Getting more great women involved in EWGA is a wonderful way to keep our Chapter vibrant.  

Every year we spend a lot of time trying to grow our membership.  We try to recruit new members and continue to serve our loyal and long-term members.  We know that injury, illness, pregnancy, relocation and other reasons can lead to members not renewing their membership.
 
What about members who leave for reasons other than these?  Reasons such as not having fun, no one caring if they attend events, inconvenient golf opportunities, "Rules Queens," not mixing up foursomes to discourage cliques, conflict between members and the list goes on.  Do you know someone who didn't renew this year?  Please reach out to her and invite her to come with you to one of our upcoming events.  

Be sure to patronize our sponsors, shown at the right side of this web page.

Hope to see you soon!

Carol Blevins Ormay
