Our President ......Valarie Moses
I hope this newsletter finds everyone healthy wealthy (in spirit)
and wise! The New Year is a time for rejuvenation and self-reflection. As I reflect on
myself as the leader of our illustrious club I ask myself, “What does a great leader
look like?” I searched for the answer and found the following: A great leader
possesses exceptional oral and written communication skills. A great leader exhibits
above average decision-making, which looks like: the ability to analyze a situation,
using good judgment in a decisive manner with sensitivity. Great leaders
demonstrate above average planning and organizing along with, delegation and
follow-up. Great leaders develop members in the organization by demonstrating
leadership and influence. Finally, Great leaders are innovative and take initiative.
The next question I asked myself was: “What did I demonstrate in 2013 that
resembled the above attributes? Communication: In 2013 I wrote a monthly
newsletter, added color and background to my email communications (smile), and
supported texting as our preferred form of communication. Decision Making: I
observed there wasn’t a functional Tournament Committee and despite opposition, I
developed a Tournament Committee. In addition I noticed the Vice President was
alone supporting the 9Holes Club, so I joined her once a month and supported the
ladies. Interpersonal Dimensions: I allowed The Membership Chair to not only
attend all Board Meetings but to act as a functioning member of the team, providing
opinions and insight to the group verses acting as a silent bystander per Vernoncrest
Bylaws. Therefore, I assisted in developing her leadership capacity. Management: I
took a hands on leadership role in assisting organizing the 2013 Sweetheart
Tournament. My leadership assisted in the success of the event. Personal: I took
initiative and adopted a Junior Golfer, Dana Bryant to join our golf club.
If I was employed by Vernoncrest Golf Cub I believe the above “resume” would
guarantee my services for one more year……………
In October 2013 the club hosted a very successful Membership Drive Party. We
had approximately 10-12 guests. We played games, reviewed golf rules, raffled
gifts, enjoyed wine, spirits and a potluck lunch. A great time was had by all.
Because of our recruitment efforts, we now have two new members:
