Guidelines For Delegates
Each member club has three delegates (1 primary 2 regular) and one Alternate. The primary delegate serves as the “go to” person for her club. The delegate should forward all communications to the other delegates and alternates.
The delegates should be selected by the Club’s 18 hole Golf Chairperson from the club’s roster of 18 hole women golfers. It is recommended that the 18 Hole Golf Chairperson serve as an alternate.
Each delegate has one vote. The alternate may vote only in the absence of one of the delegates.

A single term of office for a delegate is January 1 to December 31 of a calendar year. However, there is no limit to the number of terms a delegate may be appointed to serve.

A delegate should attend both regular meetings of the Association and any special meetings that may occur. The delegate should notify the alternate if the delegate cannot attend a meeting.
