The new MSR requirement cycle began on June 16, 2018 and will run through June 15, 2022.

Educating the Member remains a top priority for the Section. It is the number one way that PGA Members can add value to themselves and to their facilities. It is the focus of the Education Committee to offer programs that the Membership sees as valuable programs in the hopes that our Members will take advantage of them. The Section will do everything possible to secure quality educational programs for as little cost to the Members as possible.

PGA Member Service Requirement Policy:

Credit requirements will consist of two categories: 54 Total Credits, 36 of which must be from PGA Meeting/PGA Education (Any meeting or education program conducted or co-conducted by the National, Section or Chapter. Example of a co-conducted program is the PGA/USGA Rules of Golf Workshops). The other 18 MSR’s can be earned for service or volunteer duties, etc.
