"The national election process gives PGA of Canada Class ‘A’ members in the Ontario, Manitoba, Northern Ontario, Ottawa Valley and Atlantic Zones every opportunity to become informed on the process and vote for the person they think would be an ideal fit for the National Board of Directors’," said PGA of Canada President Constant Priondolo.

Elections for national director seats in three zones take place once every three years.

However, a fourth and fifth election takes place this year with the Atlantic and Ontario Zone national board members resigning their seat. The person who wins the Ontario Zone election will serve a one-year term.

Candidates' profiles and voting procedures will be provided in writing to the members of the relevant zone by Friday May 1, 2015. Voting will occur online, email, fax or mail ballot over a one-week period from May 4 thru May 11, 2015.

Once voting has closed, all ballots shall be sent to an independent scrutineer appointed by the national board. The scrutineer shall complete a written report of the voting results, which shall be delivered to the CEO as soon after the closing of elections as is possible, and, in any event, no more than three business days following the closing of elections.

The newly elected national board members will be sworn in at this year’s Annual General Meeting on June 4 at the Crowne Plaza Toronto Airport.
