To the membership of the SFDL,
This past month the Board posted on our web site and sent out an e-mail,to all Team Captains, informing every one of the up-coming elections and a call for nominations of offices on the Board of Directors.
The cut-off date for these nominations was set for the 18th of September.
I was very disappointed to see that not one nomination was submitted. The offices of Vice President, Treasurer, Membership Secretary and Recording Secretary, go unfilled.
That means other officers, of which are few, are saddled with more than they should have to handle.
Normally these positions, with a couple of exceptions, require little more than a few hours per month.
The single most time consuming function of the board, is the “Board of Directors Meetings”, which happen just once per month, usually held the second Monday of each month. They usually take from one to two hours, depending upon the matters that need to be considered.
The beginning of the meeting is taken up with reports from each executive member detailing what has happened since the last meeting and what, if anything, needs to be done to correct or mediate any potential problems.
The remainders of the meeting usually consist of discussions directed towards any ideas of how to improve and “Grow” the League. Which break out to, “What do the players want”?, what do we need to do to increase player turnout to “Special Events” ? The “Special Events” are the 501 singles and doubles and Cricket singles and doubles. Also included in the “Special Event” category is the Awards presentation / Chicago event.
I realize that most of the membership is not competitive in nature; you just want to play darts, socialize and have a few drinks. Go to wherever you’re scheduled and have a good time.
But keep in mind, someone has to set up your schedule and plan out all of the logistics to make it all work. It takes a lot of people to make all of these things come together. From the sign up meeting thru the Captains meetings, there are a lot of people pulling together, with a depleted Board; it only makes things more difficult and time consuming.
We need your help! As President, I’ll keep the nominations open until the 14th of November.
It really won’t make that much of a difference, as no one has stepped forward, to hold an election with everyone running unopposed. I REALLY, hope at least one of you will seriously consider running for an office.
Nominate yourself if need be! Send nominations to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
