As a membership organization governed by a Board of Directors, all members should feel free to contact a director to discuss any issue about which she is concerned. We do, however, request that our members respect the fact that these Directors are volunteers who donate their time for the benefit of women's golf in Arizona. A full time staff is employed to manage the details of your membership in the AWGA. In order to best serve you, please refer your questions and requests first to a staff member.
