Board Policies & Operating Procedures
The River Bend Golf & Recreation Society is a not-for-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, who are appointed to a three year term of service by the City of Red Deer, the owners of the golf course and park. The Society governs the River Bend Golf & Recreation Area as an outside agency and employs a General Manager/Chief Operating Officer to manage the day-to-day operations of the property.
Directors meet together monthly to address the business of the Society as a Board and also serve on one or more of the Society's standing committees; Finance, Grounds, Income, Policy, Human Resources and Winter Sports Advisory. These committees are advisory to the Board and to Management in the strategic planning and daily operations of the facility.
The City of Red Deer's Legislative Services Department is the office that advertises, compiles and recommends applications for volunteer positions on the Board of Directors of the River Bend Golf & Recreation Society. If you have an interest in serving on the Board, advertisements for open volunteer positions are typically promoted on the City of Red Deer web site and in the Advocate in September annually, with appointments to the Board occuring in November annually, or as required.
The Board's composition includes 9 volunteer Director positions, with 3 positions filled annually. For further clarification, please contact our General Manager, Andrew Gilchrist, at 403-343-6341 ext. 102, or by email.
