Met Rep Guidelines
The Met Rep is an ambassador of the WMGA to her club, its female members and she is a spokesperson for her club to the WMGA. She is chosen by her club’s fellow WMGA members. As the ambassador, the Met Rep should convey WMGA spirit and promote our organization’s visibility at her club.
Membership – Renew all current members; recruit new members who meet the requirements as per the Tournament Schedule Book [TSB]; and encourage players to work on their game to become eligible for membership. (September – December)
To renew and recruit, please be sure to ask your pro shop for a list of all female golfers currently at your club. This list should include their name, Handicap Index, GHIN #, and e-mail address.
Please contact all those eligible members after the November 15th handicap index final revisions. There is now a sample letter to assist you in the renewal and recruitment process. [Go to wmga.com and look under Membership tab].
Be sure to follow up with potential members before the December 14th deadline.
Junior Membership: We also ask that you help us recruit girls from your club who demonstrate a genuine interest in the game to participate in our junior membership program. Again, there is sample letter to assist in this recruitment process. [Go to wmga.com and look under Membership tab].
Interclub Team Matches, if applicable, work with your Team Captain[s] to ensure that the Final Team Entry forms are accurate. [February 1 deadline]
