There are new rules in place with respect to youth hires, new Statutory Entitlements, etc. that have been implemented by your Alberta Government as of January 1st. Please familiarize yourself with these changes by visiting the Alberta Government website.
On September 5th, Scott Hippe from the Belvedere GC who was representing the Canadian Society of Club Managers and Brent Hutcheon, NGCOA Canada made a presentation to the Standing Committee on Alberta's Economic Future: Bill 203 Review. We gave the committee the highlights of the latest Canadian Golfs Economic Impact Study and echoed the Alberta Golf Industries position on the time change.
We gave the committee our support of the proposal, and reiterated that our support would only be if they did not change the wording and spirit of the bill. The committee understood our need for the added evening sunlight and that a deviation from the current evening sunlight would be devastating for our industry. Please keep yourself informed on this issue and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
Advocacy is an integral part of your Association’s dedication to provide our members with the business support necessary to develop initiatives and programs within an effective networking environment to enable you to operate more efficient and profitable golf facilities.
Renewing your NGCOA Canada membership is the single most cost efficient and effective way to ensure a healthy, viable golf industry.
