2017 Work Hours Sign Up is now “On-Line”

Hello HYC Members,

Consistent with the Board’s desire to enable more efficient and effective operations of the club as well as increase the use of the investments that we have made in technology, we are now deploying the Work Hours sign up process on to our club’s web-site.

Members will note a new page under the “Members Only” link from the main menu called “Work Hours”.  You can go there directly here:  https://hawkestoneyachtclub.com/work-hours/.

Once logged in to the web-site with your member User ID, you will be able to view the various Work Hours opportunities that the event organizers have posted.  By clicking on each event, you will note further details such as how many volunteer spots are open, comments from the convenor and be able to confirm your participation.

Once you enter your details on the opportunity, you will receive a confirmation email and then another reminder email about a week prior to the event.  The event organizer will also receive an email that you have signed up and may contact you to provide additional information.

This process will augment and eventually replace the paper sign up sheet in the clubhouse as Members adjust to the use of this new solution.

As always, the Board appreciates your comments and suggestions on this and all operations of our club.
