|Dear PGA Colleagues:
The rapid spread and still-unknown threat of the Coronavirus and COVID-19 find us in the middle of uncertain and extraordinary times. Having considered all the available information and in following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and local/state health department officials, the Georgia Section is electing to act with an abundance of caution with three main goals driving our decisions:
In our view, these extraordinary circumstances call for extraordinary actions. Across the country announcements are being made of closures, cancellations, postponements, and other disruptions to plans and life. Each of these disruptions are bound to cause an array of frustrations, inconveniences and sacrifices, all in the name of helping to curb this public health crisis. We are fully aware that the Section’s own changes will have similar effects on our professionals and their families; we ask for your patience and understanding as we venture through this together.
The Georgia Section will postpone the Annual Meeting & Pro-Pro Scramble next week. The Board of Directors will be continually evaluating the current circumstances and will provide regular updates. All office operations and services will continue as normal, and we will maintain consistent levels of service.
On behalf of your Section Officers: John Godwin, PGA; Brandon Stooksbury, PGA; Brian Conley, PGA & Brian Albertson, PGA
