Rest assured that our members renew their memberships because they they support both the aims and goals of the TDGPA and the promotion of the sport of disc golf as a whole in the Puget Sound region and not because we are having an election.
Really it comes as no surprise to our current members. Association members whos annual dues have been brought current are notified via e-mail of all major event issues that face the club. This year marks the final year of a five year plan to bring the club into the new millennium.
We have made leaps and bounds of progress and need only finish the work of bringing current the all paper works that make an association strong. For example, The TDGPAs current by-laws were drafted in time when the internet was in its infancy and computers could only be found in the office place. The redrafting and adoption of these,"new", bylaws will be a top priority of the 2010 Board of Directors.
When our Bylaws were written there were not that many golfers to take advantage of our beautiful course. Thats 30 years ago! Much has changed since then but those pesky old bylaws are still here so they have got to be updated. It is the wording of the bylaws regarding elections that has proven to be an issue.
After the election, a general meeting of the association will be held to discuss the 2010 goals. This meeting will be an informational session to bring our members up to speed on all the changes that are coming including the huge club vote on the adoption of the new bylaws. There will be more info posted on this site as well as our own website. We are currently upgrading the way we communicate with our members too! This means our website also. We are dedicated to to improving the way we communicate with our members!
Finally, it is anticipated that the 2011 elections (to be held in October 2010) will offer to the newly elected directors a stable platform to conduct business on. Its been a challenge to complete the goals that were set five years ago but I remain hopeful and vigilant that they will all be completed on time.
I will begin updating this thread with news as it becomes available. The newsletters located at the club website offer a wealth of information on the happenings of the association.
