ARE MY MEMBERSHIP DUES PAYING FOR THIS?
No, membership dues pay for day-to-day operating expenses like the lights, water, staff, and supplies. Capital projects, such as large renovations or repairs are paid for out of a separate fund. These capital improvement funds are set aside every year in order to help branches replace infrastructure and enhance the functionality of facilities.
In April, we conducted a survey of members to assess your satisfaction with our programs and facility. In response to your comments, we want to let you know what we heard and what we're doing to better serve you going forward.
- You asked for more swim lesson spots. Based on your feedback, we added 300 additional swim spots and will add 200 more over the course of this summer to serve more families. We are also launching a new skills-based swim lesson cirriculum next session.
- You shared concerns about the cost of membership. We try to help families benefit from their memberships by offering many of our programs at no additional cost. Additionally, we offer financial assistance to make sure that no one is turned away for inability to pay. Currently, 26% of Lakewood members receive some form of financial assistance.
- You expressed frustration over the cleanliness of the facility. To improve cleanliness, we hired a new company to clean our building after-hours. We expect to see a difference immediately.
Your feedback is crucial to help us better serve you and your family. Every month, we’ll share more details on how we’re improving our facility and programs in response to your comments.
