How We Can Expand Our Learning By Giving
November 2018 - The Holiday Season is right around the corner, and I must say that it's my favorite time of the year. You might think it's because of gifts, parties and food and beverages, but it's really because of the giving spirit that seems to especially come out this time of year.

The "Insider Speaks"
An Important Message for The Industry
June 2020 - Last month, my article focused on the COVID-19 pandemic and the effect that it is having on our industry. We have all struggled with being isolated at home, and our clubs were closed for almost three months. Many have been struggling to keep their businesses going, and the financial and emotional stress has certainly taken a toll on everyone. But, this month, I am moved to focus my article on something that we all should feel strongly about as an industry: Diversity and Equality. Read Article...
