Well, I survived our first "Board" meeting and have to say I was a nervous wreck and totally excited at the same time. You have chosen a terrific group of women that will represent you for the 25th Anniversary Year of the EWGA. What a special time! GUESS WHAT!!! Our Chapter specifically has been chosen as the Host Chapter for the 2016 EWGA District Semi Finals Championship event. It will be held on July 23rd and we are looking for 10-15 volunteers that will be ready to make an impression and as Bonnie Raitt sings "Let's give them something to talk about" nationally! We have already started posting some social outings, clinics,...

A Virtual Open Door

As many of you already know, EWGA headquarters moved to a new location shortly before Thanksgiving. An invitation was sent in last weeks' Connections for anybody that was in the area to stop by this Wednesday from 5:30-7:30 PM and say hi! We know the trip to Palm Beach Gardens, FL isn't feasible for everyone, so we will be doing a little bit of Periscoping and Tweeting so you can join the party! If you don't have Periscope you can also view it via Twitter. Just look for our address @EWGA. So raise a glass with us as we christen the new EWGA Headquarters. See you online!

To Grip or Re-Grip? I am sure you have heard the advice that you should regrip your clubs after X amount of rounds played. Why? Over time the grips on your clubs get dirty, the material starts to wear away break down. The grips become harder to hold onto. You have to grip harder to keep the club connected to your hands. The harder you have to hold onto the club the harder it is to swing free and make good contact with the ball. If you are like me your golf bag is full of different clubs from different manufactures. Each one with a different grip size and material. It is hard to get a consistent feel. You can make your...

This may no longer be the case in today’s collaborative technology world Today, these ‘rogue members are just ‘members’ – and business women worldwide in every organization across most industries. These members are discovering new ways to get work done and collaborate across digital highways.

Communication has changed in the past centuries. In the 1800’s, you talked over the fence with your neighbor and wrote letters to those far away. Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone which opened another line of communication. By the 1960s, teenagers across the U.S. burned up the wires calling each other. Pay phones were throughout the city street corners or drug stores if you were away from home. Today, you are hard pressed to find a pay phone anywhere other than an airport. The 1980’s saw people online via “Bulletin Board” sites via dial up modems. These sites were text based and much like today’s online forums. You would join the bulletin...

Be safe during the holidays. Although we are veering off our usual social media path, here are a few tips to make sure your holidays are merry and bright. Beware of the offer that is too good to be true…it often is. Be wary of communications that offer amazing deals. These could be phishing schemes or worse. Caveat Emptor – Let the buyer beware! Use a credit card instead of a debit card. If you don’t receive your product or it isn’t what you ordered, it is easier to resolve issues with a credit card company than your bank. Never send cash through the mail or use a money-wiring service. Use free Wi-Fi hotspots just to surf, not to shop. Using an unsecured...

If you’ve been invited - or have extended an invitation - to play business golf, there are a few key things to keep in mind. If you are hosting a customer or client, plan to arrive at the golf course at least an hour prior to your scheduled tee time. If you plan to pay for your guests' green fees, being early allows you to take care of the fees prior to their arrival. If you are the guest, plan to arrive 45 minutes prior to your tee time. Make sure you brush up on your game, the Rules, etiquette and lingo before the round so you feel comfortable playing business golf. Be conscious of the Pace of Play for your group – if you keep up with the group...

You’ve probably seen them and didn’t know what to do with them. So let’s discuss discussion groups. Discussion groups allow you to create and participate in an online forum of community conversations. They come in all shapes and sizes. The web has lots of discussion groups such as Yahoo Groups and Google Groups. The EWGA Member Clubhouse has 305 Discussion groups at last count. Each Chapter has their own private discussion group, plus a few have added individual league discussion groups. The question is how and why would you get involved with a discussion group? Some of the most active groups are those supporting competitions. The EWGA Championship...
