In fact, the opposite is true. Clubs exist for their members. They should be enjoyed and used heavily and often. A facility cannot be exhausted, it cannot run dry and it cannot wear out. If it runs low, it will be replenished. The perfect WAC member is one who takes advantage of all the WAC has to offer. W e all know someone who is a member of a club but doesn't use it very often. They pay their dues but are seldom at the facility. They like to describe themselves as "the perfect member" because they're not using any club They work out, grab a smoothie and a muffin, and begin their day. They host a busi- ness colleague at Torchy's for lunch, and have a beer and appetizer at Hagerty's after work. They bring their company meetings to the Heritage Room and their holiday party to the Crystal Room. They escape with special getaways at the Inn and visit the Spa the next morning. They do all of these things not only because the experiences are top-notch, but also because they believe in and have a sense of ownership in their club—our Club. It is the Club's responsibility to make sure member experiences at the WAC— Publisher: Michelle Pinson Editor in Chief/Creative Director: Barbara Schmitt Managing Editor: Darrick Meneken Designer: Kelly Wang Designer: Anna De La Paz For advertising information: David Stolber Advertising & Marketing Sales Varsity Communications, Inc. p 206.367.2420, ext. 1204 • f 206.363.9099 david@varsitycommunications.com EXECUTIVE STAFF Chuck Nelson President & Chief Executive Officer cnelson@wac.net Robert Bonina Vice President Food & Beverage rbonina@wac.net Melissa Borders Vice President Club Programs mborders@wac.net Bill Cohen Vice President Operations wcohen@wac.net Dawn Dorsett throughout the building, on every floor, in every department—are the best around. To earn and drive member passion and use of the WAC, we pledge to do that every day. In this issue of WAC Magazine, you'll meet several wonderful WAC members, each of whom uses the Club and finds value in their membership in different ways. They spend their time with us at the fitness facilities and restaurants, they enjoy social and business events here, and they consider the WAC an extension of their home. This issue also covers the business aspects of the Club, as we present the finan- cial update and thoughts on the 2012–2013 fiscal year. We continue to show signs of recovery from the lingering Great Recession, both financially and in membership stabilization. We are cautiously optimistic, and there is still work to be done. We are excited to continue to do that work. We also encourage you, our wonderful members, to do your part by using the Club and bringing in new members. When you do, it helps us all. See you at the WAC. Admin.
