PGA of BC Awards Nominees Announced & Voting Opens


Regional finalists for the 2014 PGA of BC Awards have been determined in each of the four regions - Vancouver Island, Lower Mainland, Interior, and Kootenays / North. Nine categories will be open for PGA of BC members to vote for their preferred candidate.

The results of the votes will be forwarded to the final selection committee consisting of past PGA of BC Award Recipients. Please note that the voting will NOT directly determine the winner of the award, but will be used as supplemental information for the committee to make final decisions.

Congratulations to all regional finalists!
