The old adage “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, doesn’t apply here. While there’s nothing broken, we take our role seriously as the business community’s premier club. As Calgary continues to grow as one of the most diverse and vibrant cities for business, the Petroleum Club knows it needs to support that change.
The 2017 revitalization project will support Calgary’s transpiring business community into the future. It will offer a more modern feel, with changes meant to improve the member experience and acknowledge today’s digital world and technological capabilities required to support it. The changes will position the Club with an even higher quality experience for today’s members and future members.
A lot! We will modernize our Club in a way that will honour its rich history while still remaining competitive and in-touch with the direction of business and networking.
Noticeable changes to the general environment of the Club stemming from this vision include:
Specific areas of the Petroleum Club that will undergo significant modifications include:
In 2015, the Club’s Board of Governors, the feedback of members and members-at-large, guided the development of a strategic plan that had a vision to be “the premier business club in Calgary”. There was recognition that in order to achieve this, a critical task would be to enhance the facility.
The changes will position us with an even higher quality experience of today’s members and our future members. With low interest rates and a slowdown in the economy, the time is right to proceed.
The Petroleum Club began renovating their facility on June 17 and expected to last about four months, with the ‘new and improved’ facility set to open hopefully in October.
Unfortunately, due to the scope of the renovations members will not be able to access the Club until the project is complete. However, reciprocal privileges to other clubs in the city will be granted. The Bow Valley Club, the Glencoe Club, the Glencoe Golf & Country Club, and the Calgary Winter Club will accommodate the dining and banquet needs of our valued members as the Petroleum Club undergoes this exciting revitalization.
