Actions New CL Manual

Membership fees

Club management – club standards New Clubs Used CL manual for ed programme All existing members should be given the new manual to start Quality Clubs - Malcolm Warden highlighted the fact that anything to do with Quality Clubs can be found on the District 71 Website New CL Manual – Jim Robertson promoting the new manual. Suggesting that someone should be responsible to champion the new manual within each club. General Evaluation sheet formulated to improve this section of the mtg. Also in attendance and joined into the discussions with the issues above.

Pedro Casillas to work with Joe Gibbs to publicise the ‘plan’ on how to manage the CL manual championship thru the District Must hammer home the fact that a member is not in good standing if dues are not in WHQ. President/Treasurer need to ensure that the dues have been paid.

OTHER GOOD TRICKS SENT BY EMAIL: - Conference Calls - Agreement from Presidents to email all committee members to keep all issues handled within the club executive committee so no one is left in the dark.

Memberships - Dues paid on time Standing orders Paid in Advance - Eligibility of contestants Must be paid up before contests happen Club officer training Dec/Jan/Feb District Officer Training: Portlaoise 14th Jan, Concorde Centre 21st Jan.
