Joanne describes working at the FCC as “never a dull day,” and has been at the club since 2007. Joanne likes to chat and always remembers an old face, and she sees it as her job to develop a close relationship with the members. If the front office can’t handle your question, Joanne will take over. Joanne also helps run the website and sits on the communications committee.
When she’s not at the FCC, Joanne likes to watch movies and go hiking. Wine and cheese are Joanne’s favourite things, and if eating from the FCC menu, she’ll normally go for a burger or curry.
Carman takes care of all aspects of membership at the FCC. Applications for new membership will pass through her hands, as will any questions about membership or membership suspension.
Carman enjoys baking cakes and will often bring cheese cake and macarons in for her colleagues. Spaghetti is Carman’s favourite item on the FCC menu.
Anson works in the main dining room and his job is to make the service run smoothly. He worked at the Intercontinental hotel before joining the FCC.
