From the Executive Director: Thinking Ahead to 2019

October is here already.  Time flies.  Before you know it, we will be using 2019 as the year.

Speaking of 2019, we wanted to let you know that the National Alliance is putting together education opportunities at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando in January, finalizing plans for the Golf Industry Show, and National Golf Course Owners Association Business of Golf Conference in San Diego in February. We are always available for opportunities to educate and expand the awareness that golf is for everyone. If your organization is looking for a speaker or education session on accessibility and inclusion of individuals with disabilities, reach out to us at info@accessgolf.org. Across the country we have contact with many individuals that are engaged with using golf to improve the lives of those they serve. It may be a PGA or LPGA Professional, a program coordinator, or even yours truly. We can connect you.

Did you know that we have a search engine on our website at www.accessgolf.org?  If you are an individual looking for a program or facility that is welcoming to individuals with disabilities, check it out. While the coverage of the search engine doesn’t cover every location, it can be a great starting point. If you have a facility or program that engages and is welcoming to individuals with disabilities, use the link on the homepage of www.accessgolf.org to enter your facility or program into the search engine.

Finally, as we approach the end of the year and especially as we each look towards filing our tax returns for 2018, we ask that you consider supporting the National Alliance for Accessible Golf. While we do receive support from the various golf associations, we are reliant on individual donations as well to provide the grants, promotions/advocacy for golf to be inclusive, and education/training programs around the country. Please consider making a year-end donation to the National Alliance by going to our website (www.accessgolf.org) and clicking on the “DONATE” button on the upper right corner of the homepage.

Thank you in advance for considering to support the National Alliance.

See you next month!
