Craig Blixrud gave an update on Club Leadership, Club membership, and Club Financials.
Club Leadership: We currently are seeking a President, Vice President, Vice President of Membership, and up to 3 directors. The club can’t operate without a few leaders.
Club Membership: We have 31 active members and 11 Honorary members. Attendance has been in the 15-person range for the last couple months, more if we have a good craft talk planned. We had 43 members pre-Covid and 48 members a year before that.
Club Financials: We have about $17,000 in reserve funds and have been operating on a breakeven basis since dues were reinstated a few months ago. We spend about $2500 per month and revenue is about $2500 per month as well.
We need to figure out how to recruit new members, the value added the club can add to a business, or look at alternatives for the club going forward.
Registration can be to Craig Blixrud @ firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text to 612-716-4551.
