A Letter from our President
Dear fellow Trailblazers,
After serving the last few years as president of the Stratton Trailblazers, I want to notify the membership that I intend to step down effective March 24, 2017, after the closing luncheon. The board has been notified, far in advance to encourage them to start the replacement process to avoid a mad scramble, at the last minute.
I want to thank all who have helped me over the last four plus years with administration, events, charity, finance and ski programs, but most of all for their camaraderie and kindness. It has been wonderful for Judy and me to have had the opportunity to meet and become friends with so many special people. I feel that this is the most opportune time for the club to assess its current role and status in an attempt to position itself going forward.
Participation and involvement do need to be expanded. Programs and events perhaps need to be reduced to increase attendance. Most of all, we must have a greater number of active leaders to broaden membership opportunity and to spread out the duties needed to sponsor and support all of the management requirements necessary for ongoing support.
We have the next few months to develop a plan as well as to consider all options. While I do plan to step down, I do not plan to step out and will make myself available as a loyal supporter and active participant. Again, thanks to all old and new friends that have made these years a great experience.
