Drills - Which One Can I Attend

A Friendly Reminder

 QCPC has guidelines for which drill session you may sign up for.  

These guidelines can be found HERE
These guidelines also found under QC Club Resources on the web page right hand side bar.

Instructors are asked to monitor
 whether people meet the proper requirements
 for fairness to those who do.  

Thanks for your understanding

Vice President/Secretary

It is time again for the QCPC Board of Directors nominations for Vice President and Secretary.   At this time we do not have any names for the Secretary nominees.  For Vice President we have one nominee so far which is our current V.P. Dave Mungo.   Our next election will be in March 12th at our Annual Meeting.  Kathleen Baker had graciously accepted the position as Secretary and her term has been completed. We appreciate everyone who is currently volunteering in these positions as they are the cornerstone for moving our Club forward.  Please consider adding your name to be nominated.

The term is a two year commitment meeting once a month for 2 hours (not during the summer months).  The election is in March, but the actual term begins in September

Vice-President:  The Vice-President shall assist the President and shall, in his/her absence, perform the duties of that office.  The Vice-President will also assume responsibilities as assigned by the Board.

Secretary:  The Secretary shall record the minutes of general and special meetings of the membership and Board, shall post the minutes in a timely manner, shall be in charge of all records of the QCPC, other than the Treasurer’s, shall maintain an archive of documents involved in the governance of the QCPC, shall be responsible for correspondence as requested by the members of the Board, shall make available any reports required by the Board, shall give notice of all Board and membership meetings at least 96 hours in advance, and shall include the meeting’s agenda with the notice.

If you are interested, please contact Steve Shapiro at
