NENY PGA Website Link Added to NENY Home Webpage

Please note that we've added a Email link to our section website for your ease and convenience! No need to go to to just log into your email if you have a email! Just save the as a favorite site! Making Revisions With Site Renovation

Maybe you've seen the new website that has been implementing gradually in the last year in their voluntary Beta site (link located at the top of when you log in). They have been working hard to update to the site in an effort to provide a better user experience for PGA members, students and associates. From the I.T. team's feedback they gathered meeting with members one-on-one, and testing the designs in an effort to make this a resource that is easy to use, and which provides the information our members want and in an attempt to put together a similar theme using service (similar to our own NENY PGA Section webpages.

Over the past few months, they have been slowly increasing the rate at which site visitors are moved over to the new experience instead of the current one. The goal is to have 100% of users going to the new site by April 29, 2019. We want the new experience to be the one members see when they go online to pay their dues beginning in May.
