2019 Elections

 Dear Member

This board of directors open position notice is to be activated and posted on January 8, 2019  and remains valid until midnight January 30, 2019.

We have just begun the last three months of our winter/spring, 2018/2019 season at Palm Creek Resort. It is time to turn our attention to the election of new Club Board members. Our Board consists of seven members; President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and three (3) At Large Members. As you know we stagger our terms for officers so that we limit the number of Board members whose terms will end at the same time. This staggering of terms helps to assure we keep one-half of the Board's experienced members in place as the newly elected Board Members transition to create a new Board for the next year.
There is no Search Committee that knows all of our 900 Club Members, but collectively, you do. Help our Club find candidates that will keep this Club vibrant and forward thinking. Whether you would like to explore your options or it is someone you would like the Committee to speak to about a candidacy for a Board position, please contact any current Board member.
