Fritsch elected president of Mount Brenton Golf Course board of directors

Annual general meeting conducted by Zoom for the first time

Following the annual general meeting on Feb. 17, the Mount Brenton Golf Club’s board of directors for 2021-2022 held their first meeting Feb. 24 to elect a president, vice president and to assign board members with committee responsibilities.

Chris Fritsch was elected president, with Mike Dungey serving as vice president. Dungey is also in charge of golf operations and human resources.

Others on the board and their respective posts include: Tom Andrews, Peter Findlay and Len Shaw (finance); Peter Findlay, Bruce Dussault and Andrews (strategic planning); Shaw and Dussault (grounds and greens); Donna Kendall and Peter Collum (membership, marketing, retail); Bruce Greenhill (restaurant and clubhouse); Leigh Bennett (fleet and member carts/cart shed); Collum (communications); and Bennett (project management).

Staff members include: Jan Best (club professional); Eric Butson (assistant professional); and Ernie Whitelaw (grounds superintendent).

Arden Chailler and Alexis Herbert are the co-office managers, with Julie Stevens, formerly of the Maple Lane Cafe, set to take over as food and beverage manager when clubhouse renovations are complete. Canteen on the Green is the name of the new endeavour.

The preceding AGM was the first and what members hope will be the last meeting of its kind via Zoom. A good group of 98 members of 117 registered took part.

Len Shaw created everything needed for the online meeting to run seamlessly.

Three new members were elected to the board at that meeting before being assigned to positions, including Tom Andrews and Bruce Dussault for three years, and Leigh Bennett for two. Sitting directors Shaw and Peter Findlay were re-elected for two years, and Mike Dungey and Peter Collum for three years each.

Chris Fritsch, Donna Kendall and Bruce Greenhill all continue to serve, with their terms up in 2022.

Art Kendall was thanked for his valuable work during 10 years of service on the board, including the last three as president. Kendall was seeking a two-year term, but did not get re-elected to the board.

Kath Burnell and Richard Oldfield both retired from the board this year, and were commended for their dedication and contributions to board endeavours and to the club in general.

The major document on the agenda, presented by Findlay, was the five-year strategic plan, the most comprehensive one of its kind in recent club history.

All reports and documents presented were passed by voters, with a good level of discussion within the limitations of Zoom.
