2014 Spring Meeting
The AGA held it’s Spring Meeting and Awards dinner on Thursday, March 6 at Phoenix Country Club. This is the annual business meeting of the association where the Executive Committee and staff present a synopsis of activities for 2013 as well as planned programs and events for 2014. Lead by Dick Haugland, they presented reports on association finances, handicapping, course rating, club programs, tournaments, and communications/marketing. Mike Sweeney, Western Region Manager for the USGA also presented an update on some of the new initiatives of the USGA.
The Awards dinner got underway with a welcome and introduction of guests (or should we say a mini-roast of guests) by Jim Frazier, former President and longtime Master of Ceremonies. No one escaped his wit.
