The PDGA announced today that effective immediately the organization would be reducing its staff by more than 50%.
“I have always said we have the best staff around, and that has been reinforced throughout this whole process,” PDGA Board of Directors President Justin Menickelli said. “We are grateful to all of our staff members and consider them family, and we will welcome them back with open arms once we are on the other side of this crisis.”
Affected staff members have been furloughed — unpaid, retaining health benefits — until standard operations resume. Standard operations includes event sanctioning, which the PDGA said it should have an update on this week.
