TO ALL ASC MEMBERS:
Although this will be the fifth year during which I will have served as President of our club it is only my initial 2017 monthly message. As such, my first order of business on behalf of all ASC members is to thank all 2016 members of the BOD for their contributions to the continuing development of ASC. The amount of voluntary time and effort that is required of all Directors is immense and must always be appreciated.
I wish to first thank Jimmy Hehir for his many years of service as the Club’s Secretary and to Mark Klove not only for his service as President but for his willingness to serve as Jimmy’s successor..
In addition, there are two new members of the BOD. One is Cheryl Crawford who is the new Membership Director. I have known Cheryl since she the day she joined ASC when I had the pleasure of providing her initial trap shooting lessons. Subsequently Cheryl has willingly undertaken every task asked of her including having been of significant assistance to Steve Harsfald who has been an outstanding Membership Director the last two years.
The other is Steve Cooper as our new Community Relations Director, a role that has been redefined in a manner such that it may well become the single most important of all BOD responsibilities. That being said we are indebted to Matt Lavoie for his prior efforts as Director; Community Relations and especially for his willingness to remain the ASC webmaster.
On behalf of your 2017 BOD I assure all members of your BOD’s continuing commitment to do everything possible in order to provide maximum service to all ASC members on a financially responsible basis.
In addition, commencing with the January Membership meeting:
- We will encourage any member to become more actively engaged by posing appropriate questions to any Director when they deliver their monthly department reports.
- We will explain at each meeting selected Protocols and Procedures that govern how our club is managed
- We will endeavor to have at least on an every other month basis guest speakers on issues of interest to the membership
In closing I encourage all members to make a genuine effort to attend the monthly membership meetings in order that you can become better informed as to your club’s current and planned activities
Dick Reichter, President
