Here we are again! It's the end of another year. I hope it was a great one for you, both personally and professionally. At Club Insider, it was another exciting year, as we completed our 20th year of service to this great industry. We also set some plans in motion that will continue to make Club Insider your go-to industry resource; now, and in the years to come. Once again, this year, we strived to share great cover stories that, if studied, can really help you in your club business. Our Contributing Authors provided more tools for your toolbox with a supreme lineup of Best Practices articles from which to learn. And, of course, we continued to share industry news as it happened with both published press releases and volumes of Norm's Notes.

Our Mission is "To help the owners and operators of health, racquet, and sports clubs professionalize their clubs and gain the trust and business of their community," and we hope you have found value in this year's Club Insider editions and that this month's article offerings will add to your knowledge and expertise heading into the New Year.

At 200,000+ square feet on 20 acres and serving almost 20,000 members, there is much to learn from industry legend, Red Lerille.

We went north for the future of fitness to Alaska with our February Edition, featuring Robert Brewster, President of the Alaska Club Company. Having been there for the majority of the company's expansion, and also being an IHRSA Board Member, this story became one discussing the power of leadership.
