The elected members of the Board of Directors are working hard on your behalf and appreciate the input and support offered by membership. This new feature in the monthly newsletter is intended to provide updates on recent Board decisions and other important topics.
- At the May meeting, the Board approved moving forward to solicit bids for adding four pickleball courts to our racquet sports facility. Working with our engineering consultant, Jim Groff, Curt Baskette and Patrick O’Keefe are reviewing the bid package and identifying potential vendors for the project. Bid requests will go out shortly.
- At the June meeting, the Board approved my request to form an ad hoc committee to develop a plan for refurbishing the pool facility. The DWCC long-range plan contemplated replacing the current bath house with a new multi-purpose building. The committee will develop a vision for a re-designed facility and a project plan for the effort.
- As you know, our computer system was the victim of a malware attack in March. Not only were our current records erased, but access to our off-site backup files was also blocked. The staff, particularly Natallia Auramenka, has been working tirelessly since then to reconstruct accounts and rebuild the POS and billing systems. To fortify our defenses against future cyber-attacks, we have engaged a new IT vendor, Shoshin IT. In addition to providing enhanced system administration and maintenance, Shoshin IT is monitoring DWCC workstations to ensure patches and reboots are conducted expeditiously, providing next generation anti-virus software, and offering unlimited help desk support and guidance for the Club’s information technology systems.
