Castle View Gridiron Club

Letter from Gridiron President

 

Dear Stakeholder:

I am very proud of the amazing things that the Castle View Gridiron Club has accomplished over the past years and the direction that we are headed over the next many years.  Our prior leadership has set the bar high for our Castle View Gridiron Club and we intend to continue this legacy as we operate with the highest levels of integrity and accountability while staying focused on our commitment to our charter and mission.

The Castle View Gridiron Club is governed by a Board of Directors. Each year, the Board elects a President to recruit, select and manage a team of "Executive Chairs/VP's (Marketing & Communication, Community Outreach, Events, Operations, Finance). These Executive Chairs/VP's carry out the duties that are associated with the fulfillment of our charter, mission, vision and purposes. Executive chairpersons manage our committees and sub-committees. There can never be too-much help for these roles.  If you are interested in giving of your time, gifts or talents, please contact us at info@cvgridiron.com

The primary qualification of executive chairpersons and committee chairs is the understanding of our objectives and alignment around our values.

Please help us to spread the word to other parents (especially incoming families) that these are the primary communication methods. We need your help getting this information out. We are segmenting our email communication lists so we can send "parent specific" communications. Help spread the word!

Looking forward to an amazing and fun year with you all!
