Club Membership during a Pandemic
Belonging to a Private Club comes with many privileges. These privileges, some of which may be limited during this time, are still as important to Club members. Being a part of a private community allows people to share their interests with like-minded people as well as meet new members who have become part of the Club “Family.”
During this unprecedented time, members unite to support their Club, knowing it will be back to full enjoyment and being able to take advantage of all the amenities. During difficult times, members begin to lean on one another for the support and community they received during their weekly lunch together or over happy hour cocktails. Although having access to limited amenities on a temporary basis can sometimes prevent members from referring new members, staying attuned to introducing members to the Club now will benefit the entire membership, and the new member as well, when things return to full swing.
Clubs have had to become creative with their offerings. Clubs with fitness facilities are offering free fitness classes and tips to their members via social media. Other Clubs have been able to purchase some necessary items in bulk and have made them available to members to help ease the burden of trying to locate these items themselves.
Although some amenities that we’ve become accustomed to at our Club are still there, they may look somewhat different at the moment. When we are through all of this, and we will be, those members who chose to stay and support their Club will be back to enjoying the full privilege that only a Private Club can offer.
As part of a Club “Family,” everyone cares for one another and shares in the responsibility of keeping one another safe. Servers, bartenders and all management feels a great responsibility to keep one another safe and to do everything possible to ensure the safety of members and their guests. This is top priority for all Clubs during this unprecedented time.
