Amy Mayberry Nominated to UGA Board of Directors
(This is the first in a series of three articles spotlighting the nominees for positions on the UGA Board of Directors. Three UGA Board members have reached their by-law limits of nine years on the board and three new members have been nominated to fill those outgoing vacancies. The outgoing members are President Judy Allem, past president Bill Probst, and former treasurer Dave Dorton. Those nominated are Amy Mayberry of Bountiful Ridge, Stewart Walz of Hidden Valley Country Club, and Randy Hadfield of Alpine Country Club.)
Amy Mayberry is in her third year on the Utah Women’s Golf Association Board and is the current president. She has participated in the women’s leagues at Bonneville, Bountiful Ridge, Moab, and Park City. She was captain of team play at Bonneville for two years. Amy carries a 14.7 handicap and entered the Utah State Women’s State Am for the first time this year.
She hails from Moab where her mother, Mary Mayberry, was active in the Moab Ladies League and started the Moab Desert Duster, a popular women’s tournament. Amy graduated from Grand High School in 1990 where she was the first girl to play on the golf team.
She graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Architecture in 1994, and got her Masters degree in 1996. She practiced in architecture for eight years with four of the top design firms in the state. She then created her own business, Company AP, which is a resource service for architects, engineers, and contractors and other professionals needing marketing and design services.
She currently serves on the Advisory Board of the U of U College of Architecture and is also on the adjunct faculty. She has LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and CPSM (Certified Professional Services Marketer) credentials.
She is married to Paul Dody, whom she regards as the best fourth grade teacher in Utah.
Amy has a big passion for golf, but it may even be second to her devotion to helping the Multiple Sclerosis Society where she works tirelessly in a voluntary capacity raising money for the organization. She chaired the 2012 Women on the Move Luncheon which is the third largest annual fundraising event that the Utah MS Society Chapter organizes. This year they raised $130,000 in a four hour time frame. She has been a top fund raiser for ten years. She has even bigger dreams for the organization and has helped it by giving of her own graphic design skills in many capacities.
