District 12-N 2024-2025 Club Secretary Training

As club secretary, you keep the club running efficiently.  You provide important support of all business operations for the club and board of director meetings, maintain the club roster and member contact information as well as support the club service and social activities.

The club secretary e-Book provides a fast and logical link to the information you need.  Whether managing your club roster or ordering club supplies, the e-Book makes it easier to access the information, tools and resources you use most often to help you stay on top of your busy schedule.
