Committees

The numerous committees oversee particular areas of Club operations, plan events and programs and advise the Board of Governors and management.

All committee positions are voluntary and Members are encouraged to take an interest in the governance side of the Club.

Members interested in joining a committee should contact the Management Office or the committee chair directly.

The minutes of some of the committees' regular meetings are available for viewing by logged-in Members.
