Congratulations to those of you in the Colorado Section who have already completed all of your MSR requirements. The Colorado Section leads the nation with 51 percent of its PGA Professionals already finished with this obligation.
As a PGA Professional, you are aware that the current three-year MSR cycle ends on June 15, 2018. To remain in good standing with the PGA of America, all Members must earn a total of at least 54 MSR credits by this date, of which at least 36 credits must come from meetings, education or player development.
It is our goal to have 100 percent compliance among Colorado PGA Professionals in meeting the MSR requirements. To assist, the Section Staff has developed an online MSR Completion Form to help you set a plan where all of your credits are satisfied by the June 15 deadline.
MSR QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Below is a list of many Colorado PGA Education Seminars and events that Colorado PGA members can earn MSR credits by attending. The information below and the MSR Completion Survey are meant as a resource to help members earn all of their required MSR points. It is, however, just a guideline. MSR points can be earned from a variety of other opportunities.
By filling out and submitting the MSR Completion Form, members will be able to set a plan to attain all of your MSR points for the cycle ending on June 15, 2018. Members will receive a copy of the results from the form, as well as be notified by the Section Staff of the events you plan to attend. Staff will follow up with an email that includes the registration links to the events you have selected.
Please understand that both of these tools are dynamic and will change between now and the end of the MSR Cycle. We will communicate all changes to the members via our weekly email, monthly magazine and ColoradoPGA.com.
