I am so excited to introduce our newest guest blogger – Pamela Swensen Chief Executive Officer of the “Executive Women’s Golf Association”.
The EWGA empowers women by offering programming that helps women learn and improve their game, builds confidence in their playing ability, offers networking opportunities with other professional women who play golf and utilizes the sport as a customer relationship builder and business enhancement tool. As the CEO of the EWGA, Ms. Swensen oversees the coast-to-coast administration and operations of 125 EWGA Chapters with over 18,000 members and 1,500 volunteer leaders. In essence the EWGA is about connecting women to learn, play and enjoy golf for business and for fun. Last year, EWGA members directly contributed over $85M to the overall golf economy.
Ms. Swensen is the “face” of the EWGA to the golf industry as she serves on several industry committees to “grow the game”. She’s a member of the Golf 20/20 Executive Committee and its Adult Player Development Sub-Committee along with being a member of the Play Golf America Council. In addition, she’s a member of E Women Network’s Foundation Advisory Council, the IAGA, the USGA Regional Associations Committee, The Women’s Chamber of the Palm Beaches, The American Society of Association Executives, the Florida Society of Association Executives and the Palm Beach County Chapter of the EWGA.
In 2006, Ms. Swensen received a Mover & Shaker award from Golf Inc. Magazine and in 2007 received a “Giraffe Award” from the Women’s Chamber of the Palm Beaches which recognizes women who “have stuck their necks out” in making a difference to other women in the workplace and in the community.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Skidmore College (Saratoga Springs, N.Y.) and a Masters of Science in Communications from Boston University (Boston, Mass.).
