Bylaw Modification - Independent Director Term
At the January 25, 2019 PGA Board Meeting, several amendments to the PGA of America Constitution and Bylaws were adopted including an increase in the number of Independent Directors on the PGA’s Board of Directors from two to three and the establishment of a short term for the individual selected to serve the initial term of the new, third Independent Director position.
The analysis and selection of a candidate to fill the third Independent Director position has been completed and upon further reflection, the PGA Board of Directors determined that a longer initial term be provided. As such, the Board modified Section 4 of Article VII of the Bylaws during its meeting on August 23, 2019, to allow the term of the individual initially serving in the third Independent Director position to commence at the Board meeting immediately following the conclusion of the 2019 PGA Annual Meeting until the 2023 Annual Meeting. This approach establishes the initial term of the third Independent Director position as four (4) years rather than slightly more than one (1) year, but still accomplishes the ultimate goal of having one Independent Director in each class of Directors.
