Northern New Jersey Chapter
Chapter Leaders

Jane Egan - President

I have been a member of the LPGA Amateur Golf Association- Northern New Jersey Chapter (formerly EWGA) since 2012 and have been able to take advantage of the many offerings of this association on the local, regional and national level.  

Making lifelong friends, learning new things, socializing, networking for business, competing with others as well as myself, and being part of a team are all positive experiences that I have enjoyed during my tenure with this wonderful organization.  

I am newly retired and now have the time to give back to this organization that has been so good to me.  I have 38 years of experience in successfully operating a large non-profit service organization, the Meadowlands Area YMCA.  I understand what it means and how to provide programs and services to meet the needs of a community. 

I look forward to using my past experience to work with a fine group of volunteers to make our chapter one of the premier women’s golf groups in New Jersey.

Karen Stepsus, Vice President

I've been a member of the Northern New Jersey chapter since 2011. And, since joining the LPGA Amateur Golf Association, I have participated in various chapter golf leagues, served as NNJ’s Marketing and Communications Director in the past, and have also had the opportunity to travel for Championship and Cup (match play) LPGA Amateur tournaments. Along the way, I have met so many wonderful women, who share a passion for playing golf, and some of whom I now consider my closest friends. 

I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to serve as your NNJ Vice President to promote and grow the women’s golf game on a local level. I have shared many good times with you, our members…a fantastic group of women. And, I look forward to sharing and providing our membership with great opportunities in 2020, on and off the golf course.  

 We need to get the word out and get women excited about playing this wonderful sport. If you have any ideas, or can volunteer some of your time to help grow our Chapter, I’d love to hear from you.  I’ll look forward to seeing you this year, and look forward to a wonderful year of exciting events, leagues, social and educational opportunities!

My first full year with the LPGA Amateurs was 2018.  I was a new golfer and was looking to  meet other women that loved golf and to find more opportunities to play.  Because of LPGA Amateurs, I’ve played in different leagues, participated in several events am playing more and more golf each year.  I joined the board in 2019 and am serving the second year of my 2 year term as Director of Leagues and Golf Education. 

Professionally, I am in a leadership position at a large pharmaceutical company where I am responsible for implementing and managing technology platforms.  As I move into my 2nd year on the board I am excited to leverage what I learned last year, along with my professional experience, to help grow and expand on what our chapter offers to our members.  I’m thankful for the experience I have had thus far with LPGA AGA NNJ and look forward to being a part of the future growth of the organization.
