Dear Returning and Prospective Members:
We hope you are doing well during this socially distancing time. We are happy to report that the 2019-20 Season set records for Membership, Sponsorship, and meeting attendance. We look forward to continued growth in the coming year with a great line-up of nationally recognized speakers in all disciplines, as well as exciting opportunities for members to connect with new and old friends.
As the Board of Directors continues to monitor the Covid-19 situation over the summer we want the membership to know your health and wellbeing are of the utmost importance. At this point in time Mirasol Country Club is not booking outside events until May of 2021. There have been discussions with other venues regarding safety precautions, cost, and contract liability if a planned event is cancelled. Based upon the membership survey results, the Board has made the decision Council events will be virtual through the end of 2020. We will reevaluate during the Fall and hope to be able to meet in person in 2021. The Board voted to reduce dues to $150 for this year. When we are able to meet again, members will pay the corresponding fee for the events they choose to attend for the remainder of the 2020-2021 Council year.
The Programming Committee is planning a great line up of speakers for the Council year. Events will be in a virtual format until we can gather again. Some fun interactive virtual gatherings are also being planned. The Board of Directors appreciates your continued support and understanding as we navigate the current circumstances together.
Once we have confirmed all our speakers and times, a schedule will be emailed to all members and will be posted on the event page of our website at www.pbcepc.org.
Our Annual membership dues have been reduced to $150 for the 2020-2021 Council year. Your council membership includes:
- Monthly meetings and four Roundtable Discussions
