  • If You Aren't Talking to Your Employees About Fraud, Who Is?

    Recorded On: 03/28/2013

    Gain insight into recommended roles and responsibilities of fraud prevention and detection.

    This session offers insight into recommended roles and responsibilities of fraud prevention and detection. From the direction and expectations of the board of directors to club executives and employees, everyone has a role in preventing and eliminating fraud. This program illustrates the expectations executives should set with their employees and underscores the type of anti-fraud training that should be provided to every employee of a club. Course content includes a review of types of fraud and features case studies from clubs and other hospitality establishments. This is not a session about segregation of duties and standard internal control issues, but rather one that examines the fraud tolerance and conscience of clubs that will leave attendees thinking, “Who at my club is overtly delivering this message to the employees?”

  • Wellness Services & Fitness Programs in the Modern Private Club

    Recorded On: 02/28/2013

    Answer your questions regarding best practices for club fitness and wellness programs, including membership buy-in, cutting edge facilities, staffing and new programs.

    This presentation is for clubs that are contemplating the addition of wellness services & programs (fitness, group exercise, spa services and health education) or already have them and wish to learn the industry's “best practices.” There are important lessons to be garnered from the experience of the many clubs who have already traveled this path. For existing facilities and programs of this type, there is now a firm body of “best practices” in creating and maintaining a vibrant and cost-effective program that positions the club optimally to compete and to prosper as it seeks to tap into new membership demographics with cutting edge facilities and programs not formerly sought by private club members.

    The presentation will describe how to:

    • Successfully secure member support for the addition of fitness, wellness and spa services and facilities that can revitalize membership recruitment and member retention
    • Create a vision for new physical activity, education and spa service programs that are much more than a duplication of services presently available in the commercial marketplace
    • Foster interdepartmental cooperation and collaboration between the fitness/wellness/spa services staff and existing departments and traditional club programs and services so as to exponentially increase impact and member participation to new “highs”
    • Attract and retain a professional fitness/wellness/spa services staff who are creative, career-oriented and committed to playing an active role in the enhancement of the overall club membership experience
    • Identify and reach out to new customer groups who are seeking new “non-traditional” programs & services
