Board Meeting Agenda
Wednesday, January 22, 2020
Guests: Ashley Bucholz, Karen Peterson
So what can WE do? I mean we.
Common logic says cut cost to cut cost. That is the common response. What is smarter I suggest, and what our competition and other successful business do is look at both sides of the leger, not just one. And specifically that means, what can we, and again I mean we, do to affect increase registrations. Another exercise later on will help you better understand how increased registrations
affects the bottom line.
Final note. One of our race directors decided to eliminate a 5K from his 2020 race schedule, because of certified road guard cost. When asked to clarify how the 5K road guard cost is any different than the 10K road guard cost, a race that occurs over the same course at the same time, there was no response. Why. Because it was a lame excuse. I challenge the board, what policy do we, or should ORRC have that scrutinizes choices like this. Should a race director independently have these decision making powers?
These and other challenges are on our 2020 horizon. I sugges we can’t continue to do “business as usual”.
Change has to be recognized as an evolutionary natural occurrence, and not a threat.
