It’s that time of year again, the time when the club meets for dinner and socializing, the time when the Rear Commodore pesters you to renew your membership (why haven’t you already?), and, as always…
… the time to elect new Officers and Committee Chairs to the Board!
We Need You!
It takes a lot of work to keep a club like SBYC humming along, to make sure that dinners, cruises, and races happen, to make sure that reciprocals are available, to keep you informed of events, and of course to make sure we don’t run out of money. Volunteers make it all happen, and that’s how we keep your costs down, so that you can continue to enjoy this wonderful club and all the benefits it brings without breaking the bank. However, if people step up, then it need not be onerous, and the work is shared among many hands, and everyone has some fun at the same time. Volunteer!
For 2020, as always, all elected positions are open for challenge, but two positions in particular will be vacant and in need of being filled. Just think, you could win with a clean sweep!
Rear Commodore
Race Chair
In addition to these elected positions, there are vacancies among the appointed positions as well. No need to stand for election, just volunteer and be appointed!
Social Media Chair
You may think serving on the SBYC Board is a lot of work and… well, there is some work, of course, but the fun! The camaraderie! The glory and acclaim! Have your name forever recorded in the annals of SBYC officers and Board members! You may think the work is too technical, or requires special skill sets, but no! This is the ultimate on-the-job training, with everyone pitching in to help, and you will realize leadership skills you never knew you had.
