An Absentee Ballot will be sent to membership on Friday, October 12, 2018.  The Iowa PGA Section will accept absentee ballots until Monday, October 29, 2018 at 12:00 (NOON) P.M.

If you wish to run for the Board and wish to be on the absentee ballot for the Fall Election, you will need to have your name to the Executive Director via email (gmason@pgahq.com) by 10 am, Friday, October 12, 2018. 

The Iowa PGA Section Membership will be electing three Iowa PGA board members at the Fall Business Meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, October 29, 2018 in Riverside, Iowa. Each of these positions is a two-year term. Only Class A and Life Members in good standing are eligible to serve.  

Responsibilities of Individual Board Members

The job of the individual board member and officer is to participate as part of the board team to accomplish the mission of the organization. The board member represents a particular community perspective to the organization and is expected to represent the organization in the community, communicating organizational goals and success. Individual board members and officers have no power except that granted by the full board through the bylaws, board policy or by resolution of the full board. All power of the board is a joint and collective power which exists only when the board is acting together as one body.

It is extremely important that Board members and Officers be present at board meetings. The dates of the meetings are scheduled well in advance to allow board members the opportunity to adjust their schedules accordingly. The Iowa PGA typically conducts a board meeting in February, March, July, October, and December. When unavoidable issues arise, a special board meeting will be scheduled by the president.

If you choose to run for one of the three (3) at-large board member positions outlined above, you will be provided with two minutes at the election in the fall to address the membership. The office will also provide the following at your request after the submission of your nomination through the Section office. 1. Excel Spreadsheet including mailing addresses of all Iowa Section Members. 2. Two email blasts to all Iowa Section Members at request of candidate. Candidate must supply text for the email distributions. Email blasts may be used at any time on or prior to Friday, October 26, 2018 at 12:00 (NOON) P.M.

It is our hope that many of you will run for a spot on the board. We have had some great leaders in the past that have been instrumental in making this association what it is today. Please feel free to contact Greg or Tess in the office at 319-648-0026 if you have any questions at all regarding the election process.
