Facility Committee

Please email Chris Finn to join committee

The Facility Committee is designed for anyone that is involved in the operations or maintenance of recreational facilities. This committee will strive to provide information to membersh about all aspects of facilities; we will also be bringing in contractors/vendors to the meetings to discuss products and services. We meet about 8 - 9 months out of the year at different recreation facilities throughout the south suburbs. During our meetings we generally have a specific topic to discuss and we conclude the meetings with an open question round table.
