PDGA Global Board of Directors

A Board of Directors is a requirement for not-for-profit status and is mandated by the PDGA Bylaws. In addition to semi-annual summit meetings, the board and staff conduct monthly teleconference calls and ongoing communication to accomplish required business. 

In accordance with the PDGA bylaws, two at-large board member positions were up for election in 2019, currently held by Nate Heinold #49340 and David Foss #68895. The two candidates who obtained the most votes in our annual elections will take office and serve three-year terms from September 1, 2020, through August 31, 2023.

With the votes officially tallied, we are excited to congratulate the following PDGA members on their election to the PDGA Board of Directors!
