The Club uses a combination of member volunteers in the clubs Board and Committees along with seasonal, part time and full time staff to serve the membership. Below is a listing of Committees that lists the Board member chair(s), member and staff representation. Ideas, feedback and participation in the club are done through a representative committee. Committees study ideas and feedback from members, then use that to make recommendations to the board. The Board in turn uses that data to approve, disapprove or send back projects and ideas to Committees for further study and discussion. The Board, at times, also sends ideas and feedback to the Committees for discussion and opinion to be shared back to the Board.
The club always values constructive feedback and ideas from the members of the club. Members may direct their feedback to the General Manager, as well as, Board and Committee members. Direct feedback from members to the staff and the board fall back to the respective committees so that it can be used in a positive way during committee decision making. In addition, there is a drop box next to the office door where members may drop off anonymous our non-anonymous constructive feedback and ideas.
