The GOOD STEWARD Books
Todd Dufek, the founder and President of the Locker Room Managers Association authored both GOOD STEWARD books. And reflect his 10 years cumulative experience as a shoe repairman and 22 years as a Locker Room Manager (12.5 years at a world famous resort and semi-private country club, and 10 years at the exclusively private and opulent Country Club at DC Ranch, his current place of employment.)
Each GOOD STEWARD book covers its own topic area-shoe room operation and locker room management respectively-and are the best books available in the industry. They reference problems, then give solutions in an easy reading narrative form. These books should be in the hands of every Locker Room Manager, no matter his level of expertise.
