Career Corner - December
With PGA Career Consultant, Michael Mueller
With my final newsletter article of 2017, I thought it would be a good idea to look back at the year (from my eyes), and more importantly, look forward to the coming year. It is difficult for me to believe that I have been in this position as your Career Consultant for almost six months, and I can honestly say that I think that I have the best job in the Carolinas.
In those six months, I have had the opportunity to meet and talk with many of you both at CPGA events and your facilities. Meeting PGA Members and Apprentices has been the highlight of my year, and the relationships I have formed with many of you are what make me most proud as I reflect on 2017. It is my opinion that the Carolinas PGA is the best Section in the country, and that is due to the quality of our Members and Apprentices and the guidance provided by Section leadership and the staff at CPGA Headquarters.
Looking forward to 2018, I have several goals that are focused on creating relationships with PGA Members and Apprentices and providing all of you with a range of services that you perceive as valuable.
NEW Carolinas PGA Tournament Director
|The Carolinas PGA is proud to announce the promotion of Mike Whitenack to Tournament Director. Mike is in the middle of his 8th year with the section and will now run all major section events and also serve as the staff liaison for the Tournament Committee. Assistant Executive Director Cory Armstrong’s role will expand to take on more responsibilities with corporate partnerships, while still overseeing the Tournament Department. Mike is in the final stages of his Level 3 apprenticeship and plans to gain his PGA Membership very soon. 2018 will be a big year for Mike, as he and his fiancé Amber Harrelson will also tie the knot. Please join us in congratulating Mike on this notable achievement!|
