NOMINATIONS & ELECTIONS OF NEW CHAPTER BOARD LEADERS
Each year we conduct elections for Chapter Board Members in accordance with our bylaws, and the new board takes over on November 1. Being a Chapter Board Member is a meaningful way to contribute to our chapter's operations. Our Board positions are set up in staggered rotation so that the entire Board is not turning over in the same year, providing stability in the management of our chapter.
This year, we will be electing the following:
- Chapter President: 1 year term
- Member Services Director: 2 year term
- Finance & Records Director: 2 year term
- Golf Programs & Services Director: 2 year term
- Events & Activities Director: 1 year term

Here's a Summary of 2015 Year in Review
Golfing opportunities – This past summer we added a new mid-week group on Wednesdays – 9 or 18 holes. For new golfers, we added a monthly Mentoring group on Sundays. Just for fun, we did two events with our sister chapter Palm Beach – St Patty’s Day and Halloween. For our competitive players, we exceeded the number of participants from last year’s Chapter Championship and were able to underwrite the registration fees. We also sent 3 teams of 24 players to the EWGA Cup Qualifier.
Charitable Donations - Our annual Tournament for a Cure initially raised over $15,000 this year. After all expenses were paid, our chapter was able to send an additional donation, bringing the total to just over $18.000 for the Memorial Fund and their Women’s Imaging Center of Broward County. Our December holiday event will benefit the First Tee, with monetary gifts as well as used golf equipment.
New/Returning Sponsors - We are pleased to add several new Sponsors this past year – Miki Boyer-CPA, Spirit Airlines, Caring Touch Pain Relief Center, and Emma Leonardi Golf Academy. We also are especially pleased that the following sponsors recently renewed their support for 2015-16: Women’s Golf & Travel Concierge, Kevin Battersby Golf Learning Center, Jess Frank Golf Academy, Ameriprise-Cece Darden, and Holland/Seabourn-Kyle VandePoll.
Upcoming Plans for 2016 - The new Board of Directors is currently working to put together ideas for next year. Look for these in January, and feel free to contact President@ewgafortlauderdale.com if you wish to send any suggestions.
