Do you wonder what we do? Well, it is easy to wonder since the Governance Committee works, primarily, behind the scenes. Our principal responsibility is the recruitment, orientation, education and maintenance of the board.  

In addition, the Governance Committee insures that the board fulfills its legal, ethical and functional responsibilities through adequate governance policy development, and other responsibilities.

I would like to thank Naples Garden Club’s Governance Committee for their tireless work:  Arlene Cluff, Diane Frisicaro, Kathleen Hawryluk, Ann Howat, Renee Rosch Lewis, Sally Lutz, Raynelle Perkins and Barbara Sampson.
