2019 Conference and Annual Meeting Golf Ontario
Golf Ontario is very pleased to invite you to attend “Partner Focused”, our 2019 Conference and Annual General Meeting that will take place on Monday April 1, 2019 at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville. This will be an exciting opportunity for Golf Ontario to bring together key member facilities, influential members of the golf industry, volunteers, staff and others to learn more about many of the important initiatives that will be delivered in 2019 and beyond.
‘Partner Focused’ is the focus of our recent Strategic Plan and reflects our focus on building stronger relationships with our member facilities. We believe that working together as partners will give us the greatest chance to grow golf in Ontario. With this in mind, we have a number of exciting initiatives planned that will strengthen both the facility and the provincial organization and are excited to share those with you.
As always, we will be conducting our annual general meeting during this session. The Notice of Meeting for this and corresponding documents will be available soon.
But more importantly, we have built a surrounding conference with compelling content designed specifically for you, our member facilities. We will have an amazing SHOWCASE which will be set up throughout the conference to allow our staff from all areas to share more information about details important to the facility. We also have lined up 2 keynote speakers to deliver some relevant, timely, compelling content.
