Nominations for the 2017 USGAA Development Awards are now open

by Jun 4, 2017USGAA News

Nominations for the USGAA 2017 Development Awards are now open. The inaugural awards last year rewarded clubs who went the extra mile in initiatives that help them grow and become more rooted in their community.

The categories for the awards this year are the same as last year with the addition of one new category, Best Promotional Video. Videos created by clubs are often shared on social media and are an attractive way to generate interest and bring new potential members to the club. We encourage clubs to produce these videos themselves and share them on social media. All videos released and submitted before the awards deadline will be considered.

The other categories are listed below alongside the 2016 winners. For more details on the criteria for winning the awards click the button to your left.
