With spring comes optimism, and there’s certainly plenty of reason to be optimistic about the BOC this year. After a challenging winter for cross-country skiers last year, we had a great season this year. And the tennis, rowing, and paddling committees are hard at work making plans for this upcoming season.
Along with optimism, however, come concerns about our future. Our membership is not growing, yet costs are. Equally worrisome, program committees and the BOC board are having a hard time recruiting members to take on leadership positions. If you look at the names on the BOC board and program committees, you’ll see many of the same names you’ve seen for years. Right now the BOC board is without a treasurer. What can you do?
- Encourage friends and people new to the area to join a BOC program.
- Make a point of welcoming new members.
- Consider joining a program committee or the BOC board.
- Get involved in program or BOC board activities. We’ll be identifying tasks in the coming months that will need volunteer help.
Let’s all make a point of doing a little more this year to insure BOC stays vibrant and financially viable. Thank you!
