Important MiGCSA Management Update
As we all know difficult economic times in Michigan have changed the way we have operated our facilities in 2009. This also holds true for your state association. The board of directors manages your chapter in the same way you manage your golf course operations; as a business. It is from this vantage point that the board of directors has made a unanimous decision to end the Contract Agreement with Eurich Management Services, LLC.
The reason for this change is largely financial. Even with the wonderful year we have had so far in 2009; seeing an increase in membership, Industry Partnership support, and solid event attendance the board feels that this proactive decision will put the MiGCSA in a stronger financial position now and in the future. The MiGCSA will continue to be a client of Eurich Management for the next 90 days until November 19, 2009. Please continue to conduct any of your chapter business with Eurich. All remaining 2009 chapter events will still be conducted as planned and a preliminary schedule for 2010 has already been created with great venues. Alternative plans for member communication are being put into place now and will not affect the level of service you have come to expect from the MiGCSA.
The MiGCSA chapter wouldn’t be where we are today without the work from our Executive Director Donn Eurich and his staff. They helped us merge four separate chapters into one extremely successful chapter in a short amount of time.
During the fall season, the board of directors will begin to discuss MiGCSA leadership plans for the future. Please feel free to contact me or any MiGCSA board member with questions or comments; we would like to hear from you.
Thank you for your continued support,
Steve Hammon, Superintendent
Traverse City Golf & Country Club
