Career Corner - December

With my final newsletter article of 2017, I thought it would be a good idea to look back at the year (from my eyes), and more importantly, look forward to the coming year. It is difficult for me to believe that I have been in this position as your Career Consultant for almost six months, and I can honestly say that I think that I have the best job in the Carolinas.   In those six months, I have had the opportunity to meet and talk with many of you both at CPGA events and your facilities. Meeting PGA Members and Apprentices has been the highlight of my year, and the relationships I have formed with many of you are what make me most proud as I reflect on 2017. It is my opinion that the Carolinas PGA is the best Section in the country, and that is due to the quality of our Members and Apprentices and the guidance provided by Section leadership and the staff at CPGA Headquarters.   Looking forward to 2018, I have several goals that are focused on creating relationships with PGA Members and Apprentices and providing all of you with a range of services that you perceive as valuable.  View More...
