The poll closed December 16 during the online Christmas Party. Special thanks to all volunteers throughout the year, including board members, candidates who ran for office, and our race committee skippers & crew.
With 93 unique ballots cast, here are the newly-elected officers for 2021:
Commodore: Mike Adams
Vice Commodore: Mike Scribner
Secretary: Jenny Hill
Treasurer: Carlton Wilson
At-Large Board Member, Position #1: Lizzy Grim
At-Large Board Member, Position #3: Dana Brooks
A list of all current board members is located here.
Additionally, the new bylaws proposal was APPROVED by the general membership. As a result of the newly approved bylaws that go into effect for 2021, membership levels have been simplified to either Voting or Associate. Current (as of December 2020) Cruising members and dual members (Cruising or Voting) in good standing may convert their memberships for 2021 to either of the two valid membership types without incurring a $25 initiation fee. (If you want a new STYC burgee, though, you still need to buy one.)
The primary (administrative) contact for membership types that are no longer valid after 2020 will automatically be enrolled as a Voting or Associate member. If you want to change that selection, or if you're the "plus one" in a dual membership that wants to convert to your own membership in 2021 without incurring a new initiation fee, please contact us at email@example.com.
As required in our bylaws, club elections are held annually in December.
The application process and timeline for board member candidates for the next elections will be announced at a future date. Newly-elected officers from the December 2021 election will begin their term in January 2022. The following positions will be on the ballot in 2021:
As always, members are invited to attend our monthly board meetings. Anyone considering getting involved as a club volunteer (or a future board member) are strongly encouraged to attend the monthly board meetings. You can browse our calendar to find the next regularly-scheduled board meeting and register to let us know you'll be there!
