A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats, But We Can’t Row It Alone – Carol Preisinger

Carol PreisingerAs we all navigate through the tidal waters of our golf industry, sometimes we encounter smooth sailing and other times rough waters. Some say, “that’s life”, and some say, “that’s golf”. No two days are ever the same, and our ability to adjust to this random environment of life and work is critical. All you can do is the absolute best that you can do. Especially in this digital age, which is supposed to make us more efficient, right? I don’t normally get personal in this platform, but since my 3 terms as SE Section President is almost completed, I want to share this with every Apprentice and New Member of our Section, and the T&CP.

Now, more than ever, we need to stay connected to each other, How do YOU stay connected with your Section and T&CP membership?
Visiting the T&CP Extranet?
Reading the Monday Morning Memo’s through email?
Opining on the LPGA Social Media pages…
Or, dare I say it…
Attending a T&CP National Event or a Section Meet and Greet?

Summer is approaching…time to think about Nominations for Section Elections and Of The year awards. The offices of President/Vice-President and Secretary are open, and there are so many talented members who are deserving of a nomination.

Check this newsletter’s section calendar for dates and details!

This is the year that you can be INVOLVED…Imagine ways that you can contribute to your association, no matter how small.

Malia FolquetAs the end of year inches closer, want to remind everyone of upcoming events and our successes this year. We just had a fabulous seminar hosted by Alison Curdt at Wood Ranch Golf Club. Our own Marge Chamberlain, LPGA Member and financial advisor for Edward Jones. We learned about investing, mutual funds, retirement options and how to manage our money. As businesswomen, these are very important components for our lives and I encourage all of you to learn more. Marge has agreed to do more seminars and I hope to book her again because she was truly awesome.
