Executive Director: Together We Can

WOW!  Half the year is already gone by and most of us are in the middle of summer and our programming to ensure that individuals with disabilities have access to the game of golf and life.  Hope it is going well for you all.

The National Alliance for Accessible Golf has had a busy year thus far.  Meetings at both the PGA Merchandise Show and the Golf Industry Show.  National Golf Day on Capitol Hill in DC in April followed by our annual Board of Directors meeting in Alexandria, VA.  Presentation by Jan Bel Jan of our Board at the American Society of Golf Course Architects in May.  Then that was followed up by our presence at the 2017 Special Olympics North America Golf Championship in Seattle.  And now here in the first week of July, meetings and exhibit at the Department of Defense Warrior Games and the Warrior Summit Transitional Resource Fair for Veterans and Families in Chicago.  All this along with the various grants we have distributed to grassroots programs for accessible and inclusive programming.  And still we have another half of the year to go.

Together we can all make this game inclusive and accessible.

I had a big surprise at the Special Olympics event in Seattle.  During Opening Ceremonies, on behalf of Special Olympics and PGA of America, Beth Major of the USGA and Board member of the National Alliance for Accessible Golf presented me with the Conrad Rehling Award for efforts over the years with Special Olympics and individuals with disabilities.  Very emotional moment for me.
