Greetings Members, 

I hope this message finds you well and everyone is having a great summer thus far. On behalf of SDGCSA, we wanted to take a moment to update you on the recent Board changes, given the departure of Chris Erickson to his new position at Fair Oaks Ranch CC in Texas. We greatly appreciate Chris and all the time and effort he put into this association. I know it was a great passion for him and he developed many long-lasting friendships during his time in San Diego. Thank you, Chris.  

Due to Chris’s departure, I moved up to the President position following a vote with board approval during a meeting on July 13th. Following a Board meeting on August 18th, Matt Partridge (Miramar Memorial) was voted to move up to Vice President and Kelly Halsey (Mt. Woodson) was voted to move to the Executive Board in the Secretary / Treasurer position. We will seek to appoint a Director to the Board to fill the remaining position at some point in the coming months. Our goal initially is to gain a strong understanding of association operations, given these sudden changes. We also seek to continue what we focused on several years ago, which was to provide a full calendar of quality events. 

Our next event is the Don’t Stop Believin’ Tournament for Prostate Cancer research at Del Mar Country Club on Sept 24th, followed by Fall Education on Oct 18th at El Camino Country Club.  

And of course, we have tremendous appreciation for Chapter Manager Sandy Cooper for keeping things together during this unprecedented transition. If you have any questions, please reach out to us. Thank you to all of our members and sponsors and cheers to a great end of summer!
