Roundtables for ExecutivesTEXAS - In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, many clubs were impacted to varying degrees: temporary club closings, power outages, increased membership cancellations, requests for memberships to be placed on hold, flooding, facility and equipment damages, cancelled programs/classes (affecting staff earning and member spending), inability of members to access the clubs due to bridge and road closings, etc. Of course, in time, insurance will hopefully cover many of these business losses. However, an immediate need is taking care of affected staff members (especially front-line employees) that may not have the resources to help cope with to this catastrophe. REX member clubs impacted include:
