Rooney: Good outweighs bad in RCSC board service in Sun City


Why in the world would I put myself through that?

This is what I hear while searching for 2023 Recreation Centers of Sun City board candidates. I totally understand after serving last year. It was rough. The downsides include a considerable time commitment, enduring abuse from a few misinformed members and following the corporate bylaws to a T. Fortunately, there is a new committee taking on the monumental task of bylaws review.

The board serves the corporation in a fiduciary capacity, calling for board members’ undivided loyalty to the corporation. A board member must remain neutral and fair to all RCSC cardholders, all sanctioned clubs, committees, recreations centers, sports and activities; not just those a board member favors.

Guess what? The good outweighs the bad!

If you are looking to meet new friends and work together for a common cause, this could work for you. I am thankful to know board members like Dale Lehrer, Sue Wilson, Mike Ege and Darla Akins, to name a few. They work hard and care about RCSC. We will always be friends after serving together!

It is great to see 99.9% of RCSC members enjoying their lives and appreciating RCSC! Why allow yourself to be dragged into the muck and the mud! Life is too short!

RCSC senior management and employees are dedicated and hard working. They keep things nice for all of us, don’t they? As a board member, you will become familiar with all facets RCSC, find new clubs to join and meet tons of great people!

If you decide to run for the board, you won’t be sorry. You will have many projects to focus on and be involved with. RCSC needs positive collaborators to run for the 2023 board!

Make a positive impact in the community you live in!

Good, outweighs, bad, Sun City
