You must be an RCSC member in good standing.

You must reside in Sun City, Arizona and be available at least 10 months of the year.

You must meet the requirements to hold an Arizona liquor license, as RCSC holds liquor licenses that require board officers to be included on the licensing.

You must be eligible and available to serve a 3-year term.

You must not hold an officer position on any chartered club board, greens committee or golf association affiliated with RCSC golf courses.

Candidates must also submit a fully completed RCSC petition, signed by 100 or more RCSC members in good standing, along with all other forms provided in the RCSC candidate packet.

You have an opportunity to learn all about what it is like to serve on the board by attending an informational meeting 9-11 a.m. and 2-4 p.m. Tuesday, June 15 in social hall No. 2 at the Lakeview Center. There will be six current and former board members who will talk to you and answer any of your questions. Reserve a spot at one of these sessions by calling 623-561-4620.

Once your candidate packet is turned in and confirmed, there will be a meeting with the Elections Committee chaimrna, Rich Hoffer, and Marcia Johnson, RCSC corporate executive coordinator. They will lay out the timelines for the election process and answer all your questions concerning your campaigning.

Serving on the RCSC Board of Directors is time-consuming, but it is also an honor. You will get to meet lots of people as well as learning more about Sun City than you could ever imagine.

Take a chance and get involved.
