PRESIDENT'S CORNER

Fellow Chapter Members

I’m so excited to be taking on this important role as President of the NNJ chapter! As a member since only 2017, I’ve quickly realized what a special group of ladies we have. That was evident at our most recent holiday party! You ladies like to have fun! And what’s not fun about the love for golf and girlfriends?  

 The friendships and relationships I’ve made through this organization in such a short time have astounded me. Joining initially to only play more golf with women has developed into so much more. I’m positive you each have a similar story or experience. 

I have some great ideas for the upcoming season and together with the new Board, committee members, and your willingness to step up and volunteer as a member, will make implementing some of these a reality. The result will be a winning combination. The more involvement we have, the more we can offer. 

I encourage all of you to become involved on some level. The connections and satisfaction received pays you back twofold. Being an ambassador for the chapter is an easy way to do this. 

Anyone you socialize with outside of our chapter is a potential new member. Remember, golfing abilities don’t matter. We have all levels among us and are hopeful to offer more activities for the new golfer.  I appreciate any suggestions, comments, or feedback from you during my term. I am humbled and grateful for your support and confidence in me to lead this chapter to even greater things. 

On behalf of myself and the 2021-2022 Board, I wish you and your loved ones a special holiday season and a healthy, prosperous, happy new year.
