The PGA (Professional Golfers’ Association of America) recently announced that Clay Myers II from The Clubs of Prestonwood – The Hills was one of 10 people chosen for the PGA’s leadership development program known as PGA LEAD.
PGA LEAD was created in 2016 to identify, mentor and develop PGA Members from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds into volunteer leadership positions within Association governance.
The program prepares PGA members for positions at the Chapter, Section and National levels within the organization. It also helps PGA Members who have a desire to serve and make an impact on nonprofit boards within the communities where they work and live.
Since PGA LEAD’s inception, there have been three Section President’s, one Section Vice President, two Section Secretaries, 16 Section Board Members elected or appointed, 16 Chapter Board Members elected or appointed, as well as 19 PGA LEAD participants selected to serve on National committees.
“We are delighted to see PGA LEAD alumni continue to develop into volunteer leadership positions at the Chapter, Section and National levels of the PGA of America, truly validating the program’s impact,” PGA President Jim Richerson said. “Developing a vast array of talent is vital to the growth of our Association and the game overall, and we will continue to take meaningful steps to support programs and initiatives that are as successful as PGA LEAD.”
