The PGA of BC would like to thank outgoing director Jonathan Kadin (Nielsen Agencies) for his service and dedication to the PGA throughout the duration of his five terms on the Board. Kadin served as the Association's 40th President from 2019-2020.
"Serving on the Board is one of the most rewarding things that you can do," said Kadin. "The friendships and memories that you make, they're hard to find anywhere else."
When asked what he was most proud of during his tenure, Kadin highlighted the Board's unity and cohesion.
"Everyone in that group works as a team and it has been that way since day one. Everyone has the same goal, and we all work towards it."
Kadin will serve out the remainder of his term on the Board of Directors until next month's AGM.
Thank you to all members who put their names forward as candidates in this election and to all Professionals who cast ballots to help determine their Association's elected leaders. Congratulations once more to the successful candidates.
