PGA invites applications for business and volunteer membership groups

11.40am 9th April 2021 - Management Topics

The PGA is inviting all those who work or volunteer in golf to join its new membership groups – the Business Management Group and Club Volunteer by PGA.

In order to highlight the benefits of joining either group, PGA Chief Executive Robert Maxfield and Executive Director of Business Development Richard Barker are hosting a webinar on April 15 which will outline the motivations behind the creation of the new groups and answer any questions on membership.

The session will take place on Zoom on Thursday, April 15 at 2pm. To register to join the meeting, click here.

The creation of these groups is part of The PGA’s 2020 Vision initiative that represents one of the most significant changes to the membership structure in the Association’s 119-year history. 

In addition to evolving the way PGA Professionals are categorised – PGA Professional, PGA Coach and PGA Manager – the Association is seeking to bring all those who work and volunteer in golf under the umbrella of a single professional body – The PGA. 

Headline benefits of BMG and Club Volunteer include:

Business Management Group
The Business Management Group is about helping to support and develop the workforce of golf, whether they’re involved in golf clubs, hotels, travel, operations, retail, equipment or any other golf business sector. It’s designed to give all of the people who make golf business happen the opportunity to join a professional body and be a part of the leading industry network for knowledge sharing, exclusive networking events and career development.

Club Volunteer by PGA
The Club Volunteer category is aimed at those who support the running of golf clubs in the way that governors contribute to schools. The PGA will provide invaluable training and guidance, enabling them to update their skills, offer more to their club and align their goals and aspirations with the professional workforce. Members of this group could include a chairperson, junior organiser or committee member.
