A special thank you to Norma Powell for all her work on this document.
As you embark on this journey, remember that the larger the club, the more structure you will likely require. Most clubs start out small, which has the advantage of being manageable by a couple of keen individuals. However, as the club grows, so do the number of tasks. The following comprehensive list encompasses many issues that will be encountered only by large clubs. Don’t be frightened by the length of the list!! Most small clubs will initially adopt just a few of these guidelines. Take what you need for now but be prepared in case your club membership “takes off”. The most important step is taking the initial plunge!
