New PGA Secretary Candidates Campaign Events Added to the 2016 PGA Fashion & Demo Experience Schedule

PGA Members will have the opportunity to attend two exclusive events to meet and learn more about the 2016 PGA Secretary candidates during the PGA Fashion & Demo Experience, Aug. 15-17, 2016, in Las Vegas. Candidates Russ Libby, Rick Murphy and Jim Richerson will share their platforms and address membership questions in a PGA Candidates Forum on Tuesday, Aug. 16, as well as in a Coffee with the Candidates event on Wed., Aug. 17.

“Because the PGA Fashion & Demo Experience is the second-largest gathering of PGA Professionals each year, it is a prime opportunity for PGA members to learn more about PGA secretary candidates as we approach this Fall’s biennial election,” said PGA Vice President Paul Levy. “Through participation in the live forum and the more informal meet and greet on the Show floor, PGA members can be well informed about where our candidates for Secretary stand on issues that are important to our entire membership.”

The formal election for PGA Secretary will occur during the PGA Annual Meeting in New York City this November. Learn more about the candidates:
