Dear MGAC Member,
It’s a new day for Manatee Gun and Archery Club! There are many good and necessary changes that are already being implemented since our new board was elected. One of these changes is the way in which the important business of the Executive Committee will be conducted in the coming year. Due to so many of our officers and directors living in far flung locations, we will be relying heavily on Internet teleconferencing. (GoToMeeting)
I realize this is a huge departure from the legacy manner in which the board has operated. But we are a club now of more than 936 members, and the only way the organization can re-engage with the membership and give them the opportunity to participate in the club is through better and effective use of technology. There may be a few hiccups in the beginning, but you should know that many of those on the new leadership team are already trained on this platform and I believe it is going to produce a lot of progress for the club in accomplishing projects that will make the range and our business processes better.
Tomorrow evening, Wednesday March 29, at 7:30 p.m. there will be a “Special Meeting” of the Executive Committee. As a member you are invited and encouraged to join and listen in. At the conclusion of the board’s business, the floor will be opened up and questions can be taken by the committee. I will ask and maintain that any member wishing to be recognized, limit their time to 3 minutes. We will have a timekeeper assigned so that we can stay on track and get through everyone’s questions. The session will be recorded for official record keeping purposes so please be mindful “it’s on the Internet and lives forever”. 😉 If for some reason you are unable to be heard for your question, please email me and I will be certain that your question is given the respect it is due and get you an answer.
Thank you and I look forward to your participation in this ground breaking effort by the committee to do things differently with the intent of making our club better. Please see the information below for login. It is simple and straightforward.
