  1. 1. ABOUT CLUB RESOURCES CLUB RESOURCES is a leading club consulting firm specializing in strategic planning, membership development and management of private clubs. Since 1990, CLUB RESOURCES, formerly Pacific Century Clubs, Inc., has assisted hundreds of clubs and their Boards of Directors, Planning and Membership Committees, Owners/Developers and Management. Over the past 18 years we have spoken with thousands of members in focus groups and town hall meetings, tabulated survey responses from thousands of members and provided recommendations for every aspect of club operations.   We have conducted feasibility studies and provided concept planning for numerous new club developments, sold thousands of memberships, trained dozens of Membership Directors, and developed comprehensive Strategic Plans for dozens of clubs.   Additionally, we authored the leading industry texts; The Guide to Membership Marketing and Standards of Operation and Performance for Private Clubs, with sales to thousands of clubs and club developers.   At CLUB RESOURCES we emphasize hands-on, client-oriented consulting services, based on integrity, accuracy and professionalism. Our comprehensive approach ensures accountability through the direct and exclusive involvement of our principals, each with over 25 years of executive level club experience, in each and every project we undertake.    
  2. 2. OUR VIEW CLUB RESOURCES is   a club consulting firm specializing in the planning and development of private membership clubs, membership programming and marketing, strategic planning, equity conversions and interim management services for developers and member-owned clubs. Private clubs, as an industry and as individual institutions, are rapidly evolving away from a model of tradition to one of pragmatism and commercialism. The history of the industry has been a series of cycles and swings, typically moved by generational values and standards. Evidence suggests traditional methods and models are no longer attracting new members like they once did, even at the most venerable of clubs. Additionally, many clubs are finding it increasingly difficult to collect enough dues to provide the high level of services members expect, initiation fee revenues are not covering the capital needs of aging facilities and assessments are increasing. Private clubs need to embrace new ideas to compete and survive in this new environment. We are applying ourselves every day to provide clubs with a new direction -- by applying research, strategy, structure, value, creative thought, open dialogue and bold steps. We believe now is the time for club leadership to embrace a strategic planning approach in order to fully understand and address the issues affecting their club, and to ensure they make the necessary changes to appeal to the next generation of club members.
  3. 3. FOCUS GROUPS AND SURVEYS With over 20 years experience conducting Member Focus Groups, Capital Improvement Presentations, Town Hall Meetings and Member Surveys, CLUB RESOURCES specializes in comprehensive member input as a primary component of Strategic Planning and Membership Marketing and also has a division, ClubSurvey.com, dedicated to the design, implementation, tabulation and analysis of online Member Surveys. MEMBER FOCUS GROUPS & SURVEYS • Traditional printed, mail-in surveys • Online (e-mail & web-based) Surveys • Pre-Survey Focus Groups • Pre-Vote Surveys • Satisfaction & Marketing Surveys ANALYSIS, REPORTING & RECOMMENDATIONS • Multi-layered Queries • Comprehensive Results Reporting & Analysis • Recommendations • Executive Summaries • Member Presentations
  4. 4. STRATEGIC PLANNING There are times in the life of a private club that require a comprehensive study of its trends, facilities, membership profile and, indeed, its future. CLUB RESOURCES has developed a system that brings organization and structure to the strategic planning process, while engaging the membership and involving them in the process throughout. As all clubs have different needs and different levels of internal resources, our Strategic Planning process is designed to offer a component approach. Our strategic planning process features ultimate flexibility allowing clubs to determine which components they need, which components they can perform in-house with our guidance, or a more comprehensive approach utilizing our full range of services. See our strategic planning outline on the next page or contact us for more details.

INTERIM MANAGEMENT CLUB RESOURCES provides a unique and cost effective Interim Management solution by combining our extensive operational and membership marketing backgrounds with our strategic planning expertise. During the interim management period we provide day- to-day management and oversight, provide an Operational Audit with recommendations for the ongoing management of the club. This process has the benefit of preparing the club for the recruitment of a new General Manager/COO with the skill set needed at this point in the club's development. OUR unique approach offers the developer or member-owned club an opportunity to benefit from our extensive experience in club operations without encumbering the club with a lengthy and costly management contract. Following the successful implementation of our operating systems and stabilization of the club, we offer ongoing support as necessary with the goal of establishing an outline for club self-management. Our assignments typically range from as short as two weeks to six months or longer, depending on individual club needs.

  9. 9. CLUB TRANSITION AND EQUITY CONVERSION The life-cycle of a private club in a master-planned development typically includes the sale or transfer of club ownership to a third party. The third party can be a variety of entity types, such as the members, a private ownership/management company or, in the case of a distressed property situation, the bank or lending institution. The mechanics of a transition are extremely complex and require much in the way of research, structuring and planning. We work with the Transition Committee to provide key services to organize and manage the transition, either comprehensively or as a consultant to others. We can coordinate the services of leading specialists in club tax, legal and capital asset planning. Additionally, we are prepared to provide interim management at any time during the process, should the need arise, and offer assistance in evaluating the options of self- management or contracting with a management company.

  14. 14. CLUB INDUSTRY PUBLICATIONS THE GUIDE TO MEMBERSHIP MARKETING When CLUB RESOURCES’ Co-Founder Bob Bodman published The Guide to Membership Marketing in 1999, it was the most comprehensive reference textbook ever published on the subject. It remains so today. The Club Managers Association of America’s Premier Club Services selected The Guide as its signature item for the year. Over 800 General Managers, in addition to hundreds of Membership Directors, now have this powerful membership marketing resource. The Guide is available only on CD and contains 450 pages of timeless, educational and helpful articles that are essential for membership marketing. Cost: $79 STANDARDS OF OPERATION AND PERFORMANCE Customize your own club’s Standards of Operations by using this template document and system.. Endorsed and licensed by CMAA. quot;Standards measure quality in the same way that a club's fiscal budget measures revenues and expenses.quot; - Bob Bodman, Publisher The development of a comprehensive set of Standards of Operation and Performance is an essential component of Strategic Planning. CLUB RESOURCES has found, from the results of focus groups and surveys with members, that one of the common elements typically lacking in clubs is a set of “standards” by which the club’s leadership, management and the members can all agree on. Cost $175
