Your British Columbia Chapter Advisory Board of the National Golf Course Owners Association Canada has been in discussions for the past few months with the Allied Golf Association of British Columbia regarding issues that concern our membership.
Topics discussed included our disapproval on the AGA of BC creating a new levy to be charged to all golf courses in British Columbia to help fund AGA of BC initiatives, as well as our perspective that all Allied Partner Associations should equally fund lobby initiatives as required.
We also expressed ongoing concerns regarding the governance structure of the Allied Golf Association of BC, which has not evolved as originally intended and unfairly hinders proper decision making. One of which was to remove themselves from being affiliated with NAGA, no other province has done so.
Therefore, your Chapter Advisory Board has determined that at this point in time, it is in the best interests of the NGCOA Canada British Columbia Chapter to resign our membership in the Allied Golf Association of British Columbia, a step also taken by the PGA of BC. We have, however, also committed to maintaining close working relationships with each golf association across the British Columbia golf industry and will remain invested in cooperative strategies.
We will re-evaluate our AGA BC decision, with the best interests of golf course operators in mind, if and when circumstances improve.
