Mission Statement

Unit 143 Board of Directors

The Mission Statement of the Unit 143 Board of Directors was revisited in May 2006, after 10 years, and this current Mission was adopted:

Our mission is to promote and sustain duplicate bridge, especially tournament bridge, in the Greater St. Louis area.   We provide benefits to members that will enhance their playing experience and skills.   We will maintain publicity that attracts and informs current and prospective members to duplicate bridge and tournament play.

Our Energy is focused on:

  • strong tournament offerings
  • offerings to our members of the date book, the electronic membership directory, & the website
  • increasing the number new members and retention of these new members in their first 2 years of membership
  • enhanced publicity of tournament and unit events
  • enhanced offerings to Intermediate/Novice players, a large % of our membership

Where We Live

We have created a scatter diagram of where Unit members reside.

Have a look, it's interesting!

Board Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month, (skipping August), prior to 2021 at Creve Coeur Government Center, room 1, at 7 PM; starting 2021 they are held via ZOOM.   Approved minutes are posted as soon as approved the month following. 

All Unit members are welcome at any board meeting; just show up.  You may listen and observe, but not participate in the discussion.


 Should YOU become a Board Member?

 How to become a Board Member

    In June, following the bylaws, the nominating committee proposes a slate exactly sufficient to fill these 4 slots.  If you want to be considered, please let a board member know in April or May.

    Further, any member may run for election to become a board member, without dealing with the nominating committee. Petitions must conform to the bylaws and be submitted to the board's Secretary no later than 60 days prior to the election. If no other candidate is proffered, then no election will be held and the nominating committee's candidates will be considered elected by acclamation at the October Sectional.

Terms of Current Board Members

Board members may serve no more than three consecutive 3-year terms, and no more than 9 consecutive years.
