PGA LEAD
Leadership development program for New England Section PGA Members

PGA LEAD was created to identify, mentor and progress PGA Members from diverse backgrounds along a guided path to volunteer leadership roles at the Chapter, Section and National levels of the Association. Integrating a multitude of dimensions of difference into our leadership ranks can help position the Association for success for decades to come. The goal of PGA LEAD is to establish a deep bench of PGA Members from diverse backgrounds who are prepared to ascend to and through the volunteer leadership ranks of the Association. PGA LEAD also assists in developing PGA Members who desire to serve and make an impact on nonprofit boards in the communities where they work and live.

Each PGA LEAD cohort is composed of up to 15 PGA Members who participate in a curated leadership development experience tailored to those who desire to serve in a volunteer leadership role. PGA LEAD welcomes PGA Members who are early on in their leadership journey, as well as those who are more advanced.
