Hi, I'm Diane St.Martin ... I'm running for re-election as Recording-Secretary. I've been a Member of CRGC for 7 years and during this time, I've thoroughly enjoyed the Club, all it has to offer and the wonderful people I've met here.
A few of years ago, I became involved with the newly formed Membership Committee and the Database Advisory Committee. I worked with a great group of people in the design and development of an enhanced Membership Database System, a new and renewing members' online membership application, a new Club brochure, and a very successful Membership Survey distributed with the intent of learning about the sentiment of the Members.
With the encouragement of other Members and my fellow Committee members, I ran and was elected to the position of Recording-Secretary in early 2018. Since then, I've had the privilege of working with our Board of Directors, meeting many new members and learning a lot about our Club ... all of which I might never have experienced had I not had this opportunity. This has been my chance to give back to a great Club!
Over the past couple of years, I have enjoyed fulfilling additional roles and responsibilities, including:
- Recording Secretary
- Executive Committee
- Communications Chairperson
- Elections Committee
- Membership Committee
I had the pleasure and the challenge of creating a new and robust website to represent the Club. My motivation in this undertaking was to significantly improve communications with the Membership and to leverage technology to the benefit of the Club. I've continued working to enhance and improve the functional capabilities of our website with features that are advantageous to our Members and supportive of our chairpersons and staff.
During this past year, and with the challenges that the pandemic presented, I worked diligently to bring new capabilities online to support our Club and our continued ability to welcome new members. Some of these capabilities included:
- Logo Apparel online store and Inventory Management System
- Club Tour Sign-ups
- New Member Onboarding Capabilities
- New Member Range Rules Testing and Management
- Safety and Orientation appointment-scheduling and Attendance Verification
- Range Qualification appointment-scheduling and Certifications
- Discipline-specific Testing and Management
- Range Qualification Lookups by Members
- Service Hours Submissions and Lookups by Members
- League Sign-ups
- Committee Sign-ups
- Range Cleanup Sign-ups
- And, rolling out this month, our Officer and Board of Directors Election Ballot and Results Reporting
Essentially, my hope is to contribute to a more transparent Club and a more informed, empowered and involved Membership.
I would welcome the opportunity to continue serving you and our Club in 2021. Your vote would be most appreciated!
