My communication today allows for me to share with you our VIDEO MESSAGE thanking everyone, while giving additional perspective on this year’s election for PGA Secretary. It also allows me to direct you to our website at michaelhaywoodpga.com where you will find our “Vision for the Future” Playbook, Opening PGA Regional Video, and PGA Regional Presentation, each delivered at the four Regional sites. You will see within the “Presentation” link below that I speak to four specific areas that concern PGA professionals the most; Player Development, Employment, Education, & Section Affairs. This comprised our 45-minute group presentation at the four regional events.
As the PGA of America we have a mission that will never be complete. We are constantly in a state of change, transformation, and re-invention. As a consistent leader within our Association, I have found myself leading and standing together with many of you during this evolution. You will continue to see and hear the consistency of my message and purpose of promoting our PGA professionals while empowering your ideas and thoughts at our highest levels of leadership.
I have always believed that we should never strive to be defined by others, but rather lead, and define ourselves by our actions of who we are and how we serve the game. Constant innovation and the sharing of ideas will stand as some of the many ways WE as PGA professionals will continue to transcend our industry and our game for decades to come. I am committed to using the lessons of my elected leadership positions to serve our Association and membership in the highest of fashion, and without fail will bring an entire arsenal of leadership experiences to our Board of Directors now and into the future.
Thank you so much for all you do to make our Association, our profession, and our standing in the game the most respected in the world. Once again please click on the links below for an in-depth and interactive experience on why I believe I’m the right PGA professional to serve as the next Officer of the PGA of America.
I look forward to speaking with everyone more as we head into the election in November.
Michael Haywood, PGA
