Connie was a member of the LPGA staff for 15 years and has an impressive public relations and media relations background. She first joined the LPGA in 1991 as a media relations coordinator and contributed to the LPGA’s media relations efforts through 1996. She left the LPGA in 1996 and returned to Advantage International (now known as Octagon) in McLean, Va., where as an account manager for event public relations, she established her media operations expertise while overseeing the year-round media and public relations efforts for numerous LPGA, Champions Tour, cycling, sailing and grassroots events. In the spring of 1999, Connie returned to the LPGA as public relations manager. She was promoted to director of media relations in May 2002, senior director in January 2005 and vice president of communications in October 2006.

While at the LPGA, Connie led the strategic communications planning for the organization and managed the overall direction and planning for the LPGA communications efforts, which included national/international public relations and media relations, key messaging, on-site tournament media services, LPGA awards celebrations and Hall of Fame induction events. She cultivated and strengthened relationships with national and international news and sports media in order to maximize the media exposure of the LPGA’s members, programs and events. She also oversaw media relations and operations for special projects, such as The Solheim Cup, LPGA Media Guide, 2000 LPGA 50th Anniversary Celebration, 2002 LPGA Player Summit, 2004 World Congress of Women’s Golf and 2009 LPGA Tour Summit.

There were several “firsts” for the LPGA under Connie’s leadership. She managed the creation and launch of the LPGA’s first-ever online media center and created and launched the Tour’s media credential/blog policy, the first such policy for any major golf organization.

Throughout Connie’s career, she has coordinated on-site public relations and media operations at tournament sites throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan and South Korea. She has worked with tournament staff, public/media relations directors, sponsors and international, national and local print and broadcast media to maximize public and corporate exposure of the tournaments, sponsors, programs and players. She also was appointed by the LPGA commissioner to serve (1992-96) as the official liaison between the LPGA and the Commissioner’s Advisory Council, a select group of 37 senior corporate executives from a variety of disciplines.

Prior to initially joining the LPGA, Wilson was tournament coordinator for the 1991 LPGA Championship, which was managed by Advantage International.  A native of Northampton, Mass., Wilson is a graduate of Wheaton College (Mass.), where she earned a B.A. in Economics. She currently resides in central Florida.
