Phone It In!  
Volunteer to be part of our "PHONE TREE" Posse

We are in need of 10 to 15 volunteers to be part of our Phone Tree Posse.  Make telephone calls to fellow LPGA Amateur members and personally invite their participation in golf, education and special events throughout the year.

I'll take up very little of your time plus you'll have the opportunity to engage with members you might not otherwise - and might even find some new golfing partners!  Most importantly, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you made an important contribution to the continuing success of the Sacramento Chapter of LPGA Amateurs Golf Association.

Here are the answers to some questions you may have:

WHEN?  "Phone Tree Posse" volunteers will occasionally (3-4 times per year) be asked to call 10-15 chapter members to invite and encourage their participation in a specific event - for example, the Annual Kickoff Brunch or a sponsor's social event.

WHERE?  Calls can be made from the comfort of your home - or anywhere else - that works for you.

WHY?
  We want to ensure that EVERY member benefits from all the events, special activities and FUN we have to offer.  While our chapter's growth and retention rates were among the highest nationally last year - and our annual survey showed a high degree of member satisfaction - we are committed to doing even better this year.  We particularly want to reach out to new members so that they feel welcome, understand the various events and have an opportunity to ask questions.

So, what are you waiting for!  Email Sheryl Sookman, Membership Director, at  Membership@LPGAAmateursSacramento.com.
