"We are extremely delighted to have these two individuals join our board to continue building on our outreach efforts to the club community,” said Bob James, Executive Director of Westchester Country Club and NCA Foundation Chairman.  "We know they’ll both be great additions to the board in helping the Foundation support projects and provide resources that would otherwise not be available for the private club industry.”
