Hello Threshold Members!
Threshold Board Elections are coming up on May 5, 2019 so it’s time to put out a call to all members who wish to run. The leadership of this wonderful club is a rewarding experience, as anyone who has ever served can attest. It is a rare thing to have such an organization as this and something that can likely be taken for granted; but when you consider the sheer magnitude of volunteers that it takes to keep this club in working order for 36 years, you can begin to understand why we take such pride in all that we’ve built.
The minimal duties of serving on the board include:
– To run the business of Threshold as a governing body in compliance with the association rules and within the law as described in the California State Corporation Code.
– Advocate for the Membership and its goals as their elected representatives.
– Fulfill the necessary duties of opening and closing the club for events in a fair and reasonable manner.
– Be available for the monthly business meeting which is currently held on the 1st Sunday of the month in addition to a monthly board meeting.
