On behalf of my family, friends, and those who have passionately supported me to this point in my life, I’d like to OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCE MY CANDIDACY FOR SECRETARY OF THE PGA OF AMERICA in 2014. Over the next eleven months, it will be my goal to present to each of you our campaign pledge of ‘A Vision for the Future’. A leadership vision inspired and built upon seventeen consecutive years of service as a PGA Chapter Board Member, Officer, and President and PGA Section Board Member, Officer, and President. Also built on service to the PGA of America’s National Board of Directors and over fifteen Chapter, Section, and National committees, chairing eight of those committees.
A journey that exists on the sound moral and ethical standards of the PGA professional and integrity shared by the game’s finest leaders. In the next year it will be my hope to secure your support in selecting me to continue to serve our organization as one of its most trusted leaders.‘The responsibility of leaders is to ensure that those who follow them are of equal, if not better leaders, have equal if not better ideas, and speak as equal if not better to our future. In my opinion, that is leadership, and what will foster a more vibrant, growth oriented, and visionary membership.’ – Michael Haywood, PGA
