Board Policy Oversight Task Group Seeks Feedback

Dear GCSAA members,

Every three years, the GCSAA Board of Directors establishes a Board Policy Oversight Task Group tasked with reviewing the strategic intent, prudent use of funds, and impact of all policies regarding GCSAA-paid support and expenses for board members. The task group is scheduled to meet on July 23, 2024, to begin their review.

The task group will present its findings and recommendations to the board and membership Oct. 28-30, 2024, at the 2024 Chapter Delegates Meeting to ensure transparency in board expense and support policies.

The task group is composed of the five members of the Nominating Committee: the past president most recently retired from the board as chair of the committee and four voting members chosen at-large. In addition, the most recent past president who has not served on the board with any current board members, and one member of the 2021 task group will also serve on the 2024 task group.

The task group wants your feedback on the GCSAA Board Self-Governance Policies.

Members of the task group include:

  • Past President Mark F. Jordan, CGCS (chair)
  • Alan B. Davis, CGCS
  • Anthony L. Williams, CGCS, MG
  • David H. Robinson, CGCS
  • Susan M. Spahr, CGCS
  • Past President Patrick R. Finlen, CGCS
  • Scott M. Phelps, CGCS (2021 task group)

Submitting feedback

Please feel free to contact the task group via email at by July 22, 2024. Remember, if you hit reply to a listserve message, it goes to all members of that listserve. If you want the message to only go to the task group, you must forward it using just the email address.

Mark F. Jordan, CGCS
