Markham, ON - The PGA of Ontario is proud to announce that Curtis Pitre, Executive Golf Professional at Oviinbyrd, who has served as Vice President for the last two years will be taking the lead as the new President of the Association. Pitre has served on the Board for several years and with his vision and hard-working professionalism, he will be an asset to the ongoing growth and strengthening of our Association. 
 
The Board of Directors would like to thank Alex McIntyre for serving as President of the Association for the past two years.  His efforts, time, and dedication to our Association have been pivotal in guiding us, and creating a strong foundation for the future.  Upon his appointment, Pitre was quick to credit the work that his predecessor accomplished; "Alex has played an integral role in the development of our current initiatives all while providing a high level of leadership and direction. The key to a successful board is structure, organization and accountability, as I look at the talent and successes of the individuals serving on the Board, I believe we have a solid foundation in order to execute our current objectives."  Pitre begins his two-year term as President and will lead his team to ensure the PGA of Ontario continues to be a dominating force within the Golf Industry. 
 
"As we look ahead to 2017 and beyond, it's essential to understand the direction the Board is headed.  In keeping with our current objectives its necessary that we maintain our focus on the pillars that have been identified in our most recent survey.  They include: Education, Communication, Brand and Image, Member Benefits as well as Tournaments.  There has been considerable thought and attention put into these objectives and as a Board we will work diligently toward positive growth and we will use the momentum that has already been established to solidify the foundation of the 
PGA of Ontario. Inclusion is the key tour our overall success!"
