Professional Recognition Program
With Spring just around the corner, it’s time to SPRING into action!
The PGA of Ontario’s inaugural year of the Professional Recognition Program begins in April!
The PGA of Ontario Professional Recognition Program (PRP) recognizes individual PGA Members who make a significant contribution to the Association and the overall well-being of fellow members. This point-driven program is based on being active within the industry through various forms of professional development, education, industry contributions, community involvement and tournament play.
Through this initiative, the PGA of Ontario will acknowledge the Association's Top 100 Golf Professionals each year, awarding the designation to those finishing among the first 100 positions on the PRP Leaderboard.
Each Top 100 Professional will receive a customized email signature to recognize their accomplishments and contributions this year.
In addition to recognizing the Top 100 Professionals, the PGA of Ontario will offer cash prizes as an added incentive to the top 5 point earners for this year's program. Total cash prizes will equal $5000.
Be sure to follow our leaders throughout the year by checking the PRP Leaderboard.
An online form has been created for members to submit a request for points to the PGA office for participation in a PGA Partner Program and/or external education workshop. Members are encouraged to submit the online form within seven days of completion of eligible events.
To submit a request for points, please complete the form, then email supporting documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org. Supporting documentation may consist of proof of registration, certificate of participation or completion, etc.
The Top 5 point earners will be recognized annually at the PGA of Ontario Awards Celebration in October. The 2020 Professional Recognition Program will see a shortened inaugural year to accommodate the season-end celebration and to ensure members are being rewarded for their efforts this calendar year.
Moving forward, points will accumulate from October 15 to October 14 annually.
What’s your first opportunity to collect points?
Members can begin accumulating points for 2020 at the PGA of Ontario Annual General Meeting next month. Post your name on the leaderboard and set the tone for the year! Information on the PGA of Ontario AGM is below – we hope to see you there!
Please note that Professional Recognition Points will only be awarded to members in good standing.
