Change in Pool Leadership Announced

Dear EARC Board and Community

I regret to inform you that I am stepping down immediately from my position serving on the EARC Board. Due to unforeseen matters, I am unable to continue to carry out the responsibilities of my role with the pool.

This was not an easy decision to come to as my last 9 years of volunteer work with EARC have been filled with many positive changes and I have been looking forward to helping steer EARC in its next phase of needed infrastructure improvements.

To the EARC Community, please know that the pool is in good hands. Half the remaining board is made up of individuals with longer membership than my 9 years work with the pool, and in 2 cases they have guard and management histories as well.

Thank you all for the opportunity to contribute to the community and for your understanding in this matter. I’ve enjoyed volunteering for EARC and I cherish my time and interactions with you all. I look forward to seeing how EARC grows in the future.

Although I’m stepping down from a leadership role, I’m still a pool member and hopefully I will see some of you this summer as time allows.

Sincerely,
Kevin L Wilson PhD

Waitlist Contacted

Open membership spots were offered via email on March 16th to the first group from the waitlist.  They are being given through Sunday the 20th to complete their membership process.  If all spots aren’t filled the next group from the waitlist will be contacted by email ASAP.

Invoices Have Gone Out to All Memberships

Every membership who had not already paid or begun payments for the March 15th, 2022 deadline have been invoiced in the past few days. If your membership has not received a Square email invoice please check your SPAM folder and/or check with your spouse/partner (they may have it in their email). There is an extensive waitlist and it will be utilized to fill all spots not confirmed with a March 15th payment.

If you still don’t see an invoice (and were a member last summer) or you may be in need of splitting payments up please email us at [email protected]

New Board of Directors Elected!

EARC Board of Directors2022 Season

Kevin Locke Wilson – President

Michael Goforth – Vice-President

Cori Doble – Treasurer

Brian Yanik – Secretary

Rebecca Crandall, Sarah Harris, & Sallie Porter – Non-Officer Board Members

Proposed New By-Laws!

A committee made up of member lawyers and general membership have generated proposed by-laws for membership approval at Wednesday’s meeting. This effort brought by-laws up to date with current IRS and NC requirements and will provide the new board a solid starting point moving forward.

Specific needed additions were clarification of membership status in a year in which we do not open (such as 2020) and the ability to hold digital/electronic voting if the board ever saw the need in the future.
