William F. Garbacz, Jr. Named 2017 PVCMA Manager of the Year



Dear Friend and Colleagues,

I have the pleasure of writing to announce this year’s PVCMA Manager of the Year. The winner of this distinguished honor is William (Billy) Garbacz, Jr., General Manager of Sunnybrook Golf Club.

Each year, the chapter solicits nominees for the award who personify professionalism in Club Management in our community. Nominees are judged on objective criteria designed to recognize participation in CMAA, PVCMA, and promotion of professionalism in our industry.

This year, we had many fine candidates who were all very worthy of the award. Each candidate was informed that they had been nominated, and the nomination letters were shared with them.

A few things about Billy... For those of us who know him personally, he is always upbeat and welcoming. He has a big heart, which is exemplified by his volunteering within the chapter and other charitable endeavors. Billy started his career in Culinary Arts, and had a very successful run in that field. A few years ago, Billy came out of the kitchen, so to speak, to become the General Manager at Sunnybrook where he is thriving. I state this based on the praise that his House Chair and Club President wrote in their letter of nomination.

I hope that you will join us in congratulating Billy and recognizing him for his accomplishment.
