Dues Statements Going Out
Now the thought of slipping on a bathing suit may not be appealing right now (too many holiday treats, anyone?), but the pool opening is just around the corner, less than 4 months away! First, though, dues must be paid. Keep a lookout for dues statements in the next week or two. The deadline for dues payment is March 10th.
Dues are $550. This year there is an additional, one-time assessment of $50 to help cover the charge for the repairs and renovation of the pool. For 2013, the long term membership discount is $40, and the senior membership discount is $75. If a membership qualifies for both discounts, the senior membership discount will be applied. Note that the discounts are based on operating expenses and are subject to change from year to year. Those who have previously had Individual or Senior Couple memberships will see no change from last year.
If you wish to redeem your membership, please mail your Membership certificate to: VPCA Membership, 1182 Oakdale Rd., Atlanta, GA 30307. If eligible for a redemption check, your check will be mailed within 3-4 weeks after receipt.
Employment at Venetian Pools
SwimAtlanta Pool Management will continue to manage Venetian Pools this year. They are looking for lifeguards and junior lifeguards for the coming season. If you are interested please complete an application on their website: http://atlanta-pmg.com/employment Returning employees have first priority, so spaces will be limited for lifeguards. You must be 15 years of age in order to be a lifeguard. However, there is a greater need for junior lifeguards. To be a junior lifeguard you must be at least 14 years of age. For more information please contact Caitlin McQuade at 770-992-7665 ext 103.

Swim Team Coaching Changes
