The PDGA Board formed the Nominating Committee at the 2011 Spring Summit. The overall goal of the committee is to enhance the quality of the election pool for the Board, ultimately improving the effectiveness of the elected Board.

The principal motivation for this new effort is the realization that the responsibilities of PDGA Board members have become significantly more demanding as the organization and the sport has grown larger and more complex. Additionally, there is the concern that there are qualified candidates within our membership who might need additional motivation and information in order to consider running for a Board position.
