Staff & Executive 2016


Our staff offers many programs and classes that are tailored to the learning needs of each member. 


The club is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors who plan both the day-to-day and long term running of the club.  We are always looking for new input and, in order to offer the best service to our members, very much need to fill the vacant positions on the Board (positions may be held jointly as well).
