Club Owners Liaison Bonnie Simon Bonnie will not be on the board next year, but she suggested that this board position, which is the communication link with the club owners, be more than simply a messenger between the two groups and that the board members and club owners work together for the good of the membership. Nancy Wainer noted that the proposed Expense Sharing Agreement includes a provision that the board members and club owners meet on a quarterly basis to develop the calendar so that would be an appropriate time to work on special projects and promotions. This was agreeable with the board members and with the club owners who were present at the meeting.
