2017 Board Members

Several people have asked me what it takes to run for a Board position so I'll post some info here.
First, you need to be a current GCF member
Second, you have to have a passion and desire to improve DG in Missoula
That's it!!
I love to see more people taking an interest in the administrative side of things!! It sure makes it easier on me! I'd like to encourage anyone who is interested in holding a GCF Board position to put their name in tomorrow nite. If you don't feel comfortable running for a position but want to help out with things let me know. Everyone has strengths that can help make our Club better!!
