The following list of board members was nominated and elected at the annual meeting in March 2021.
The Board of Directors meets monthly to keep the club running. We have a number of committees that report at each meeting, such as Finance, Facilities, Race, Social, Membership. The board encourages non-board members to serve on these committees in order to get the most input and assistance in making things happen.
Our fiscal year is July 1 – June 30. We spend much of the summer creating a budget for the upcoming competition season. The board sets training fees and hires club employees, purchases insurance and equipment on behalf of the club, and deals with issues as they come up, if they are not covered by the budget or currently set club policies.
The GSC Board of Directors consists of about 15 members and meetings currently are held monthly (except for December) in Laconia. Attendance via conference call is possible.
The board members should mirror the club membership, and consist of parents from all age groups as well as former members.

If you do not feel you can serve on the board, please consider serving on a committee. Committees include
The commitment is minimal but your input will be huge! As a parent-managed club it is all of us together who run this club, and we need and value your input, so please make sure your voice is heard.
