The first-ever PDGA Europe Board of Directors Summit took place in Amsterdam on November 9-11. President Kaisa Vikström, Finland, chaired the meeting, which included a strategic planning session led by Elaine King. During a discussion of how much European players value ratings, the board worked in real-time with the PDGA Global technology team to make a positive change in the way ratings are displayed to members, to reflect up or down movement. Plans to locate the PDGA Europe office in Finland were finalized. Two related job postings will be published in early December
