The Board has been very busy this year making several changes to the Bylaws and the General Rules to help improve the qualify of the grounds and facilities at the club for everybody’s enjoyment.
This past summer, the Board approved a new derelict boat and trailer policy that is now part of the club’s General Rules. If you keep your boat in a fairly clean and respectable condition, then you should have no worries about the hefty fine associated with this policy..
In September, the Board passed several changes to the structure of the Board. Here is a summary:
1. Created a new position of Facilities Manager who manages the Grounds Committee.
2. The Vice Commodore is no longer the chair of the Grounds Committee
3. The Grounds Committee is now five members and includes Facilities Manager, Harbor Master, Vice Commodore, Treasurer, and one Member-At-Large
4. Harbormaster Committee will focus on improved communications and management of wet slips and dry parking assignments
At the upcoming Final Bash, Commodore Chuck Goff will be hosting and running the Annual Meeting of the Members. During this time, there will be awards and recognition and an introduction of the new Officers, Committee Chairs, and members who have been elected to serve on the Board. You will also have the opportunity to see how the club transitions its leadership during a few brief formal ceremony.
For next year, I would like to do a better job of communicating with the membership to encourage members to serve on the Board. This will mean making sure I share with you what the deadlines are for you to submit your name as a nominee.
Finally, I will be at the Final Bash to collect ballots. Ballots will be available for you to complete. Voting closes at 7:00 PM sharp.
