Re: Instructors and Board Vacancies
I am pleased to report that board of directors has approved the formation of a Membership Committee. After a couple of meetings with directors, coaches, convenors and members, Charlene Ley has agreed to chair the MC. The primary focus for the MC is in three areas: awareness, recruitment and retention of members.
That said, the Board of Directors has vacancies for the next curling season: Vice President, Secretary and Bonspiel Coordinator.
Please consider stepping up to assist your club in these leadership positions. I guarantee that you will learn things about the club, board governance and running efficient meetings.
The club also needs more instructors.
The Ontario Curling Assoc is running a clinic in Stayner for one weekend in November. I have reserved 4 spaces. The board has agreed to cover the cost of registration about $1,000. In return, the new instructors will assist with Learn to Curl and in house instruction of members.
Anyone interested and willing to take on more responsibility on the board or becoming an instructor, please contact me.
Joe Fecht, President
