Dear Fellow Men’s Club Members,
Our Board is working hard to ensure that your meeting experiences are
positive during these difficult pandemic times. In order to help us move
ahead with improving our response to the pandemic, both in the current
stage and in a transition stage when we will start meeting together again,
we would benefit greatly from knowing your thoughts and preferences.
To help with this, we have developed a survey that deals primarily with
Zoom meetings, alternate meeting ideas and communications. We would appreciate
your responding to this survey, hopefully no later than Dec. 28.
As with all aspects of this pandemic, we can each play a part by working
together. In that spirit, we ask that you assist our Club by completing
Please feel free to not answer any questions with which you do not feel

The Board recognizes that during COVID-19 members miss the pre-meeting
group social interactions. For the current period when we are unable to
meet face-to-face at the ICC, the Board is attempting to create the sociability
in other ways.
To better simulate the ICC pre-meeting social interaction, would you be
interested in participating in a one month trial where you would meet with
the same six to eight members each Tuesday in a pre-meeting Zoom session?
The session would start about 9:20 am and end at 9:55 am, before the start
of the Club meeting.
Once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, would you be interested in being
part of small (5-15 member) ad-hoc, informal, special interest groups that
meets separately from the regular meeting, e.g. film group, book group,
woodworking group, coffee group, walking group, other?
The number of Club members has decreased over the past few years and there
is a concern that the COVID-19 pandemic may cause the number to reduce
further. To have full functions and economic viability following the pandemic,
it is necessary to recruit new members. To help with recruitment, the Board
would like your opinions on the following:
In order to recruit new members, incentives should be offered to members
who sponsor new members (e.g. discount of a Club member’s fees for
a year) (Select One)
In order to recruit new members, the Club should consider sharing joint
activities with other clubs. (Select One)
In order to recruit new members, the Club should consider allowing membership
of men who live outside our traditional boundaries, especially with the
use of Zoom meetings. (Select One)
This Ends the Survey. Thank you for Participating. Press Submit Below
