Steranka to Represent PGA of America on Advisory Council
Joe Steranka, CEO of The PGA of America, has been named to The Environmental Institute for Golf Advisory Council.
The invitation to the advisory council was extended to the PGA of America with the association appointing Steranka as its representative. He will join 15 others on the council, which is headed by World Golf Hall of Fame member Greg Norman.
Steranka was named The PGA's CEO in October 2005, after having served in a senior leadership capacity since 1988 for the world's largest working sports organization.
Steranka has been active in the sport industry for nearly three decades. After graduating from West Virginia University in 1979, he began working in the sports marketing department for the NBA's Washington Bullets (now Wizards). He later worked for the Cleveland Cavaliers and for the renowned Washington, D.C.-based sports management firm, ProServ.
"In light of The PGA of America's 90th anniversary in 2006, it seems only fitting that its chief operating officer should become part of the Advisory Council," said Norman, chairman of the advisory council and chairman and CEO of Great White Shark Enterprises. "Joe's background in marketing and communications will serve us well in spreading The Institute's message."
The advisory council provides guidance to The Institute's board of trustees in the areas of outreach, fundraising and strategic planning. The members were selected to enhance The Institute's ability to cultivate relationships with current and potential donors, as well as communicate the importance of the work conducted.
