DIYRA Meeting at Harbor Island YC on 1/18

Post date: Jan 13, 2014 2:58:12 AM

As indicated in my recent email [to member clubs], the DIYRA Annual Meeting is coming up next weekend. It will be held at the Harbor Island Yacht Club near Nashville, TN, on Sat., 1/18, beginning at 10:30 AM CST with registration and a light continental breakfast. Business meeting will begin at 11:30 AM.

Allow me to emphasize the importance of this meeting. We will be discussing the future direction of DIYRA in a way that mayimpact racing events in every club in the DIYRA area. Thus, your participation is critical.

First, can you confirm to me those from your club who will be attending? We need a final count for our planning for the event.

Also, I would like to know who from your club may be interested in serving in a leadership position for the coming year. After several years of services, some of our long-term board members will be retiring and we need to have new members step up to lead this association. The specific roles we will be filling at this year's event include:

    • President
    • Treasurer
    • Secretary
    • Social Media

Even if you have not held a significant position within DIYRA previously, please consider stepping forward to help lead us in the events that will help so many across the southeast US enjoy the sport of sailing. We are considering a full calendar of events for 2014, and need your assistance and participation. In addition, we will be planning a number of Educational events held in various parts of the DIYRA area.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call (770-330-2546) or email me to discuss these positions or anything else in regards to the DIYRA meeting or plans.
