The National Golf Course Owners Association Canada recently named Pierre Pelard as member relations manager for the Quebec and Eastern Ontario/Outaouais Chapters.
Pelard moved to Ottawa from Paris, France. He brings with him golf industry experience in Europe, including golf course operations, golf industry research, marketing and communications.
“I am really thrilled to join the NGCOA Canada and to bring my experiences and motivation to enhance member services and to develop both the Quebec Chapter and Eastern Ontario/Outaouais Chapter,” said Pelard.
Jeff Calderwood, NGCOA Canada CEO, points out that Pelard’s experience will be valuable in his new position.
“Quebec has become our biggest growth market and we now have a very busy agenda of member benefits to deliver,” said Calderwood.
“Our NGCOA Canada Eastern Ontario/Outaouais Chapter delivers more member services than any other region of the country. The addition of Pierre will enable us to increase our service level on all of these programs and to better meet the needs of our member golf course operators,” he added.
“His extensive experience in golf course management and golf associations will really serve these golf courses well, so we enthusiastically welcome Pierre to the NGCOA Canada team,” said Calderwood.
