US Sailing’s 2013 Annual Meeting

by Jake Fish on 27 Sep 2013
.
The U.S. Sailing Annual Meeting is a unique opportunity for US Sailing members to meet with the National Governing Body’s leadership and discuss relevant industry topics facing the sport, exchange ideas, reflect on progress, and look ahead to future plans.

The meeting is set to take place from October 16 - 19, 2013 at South Seas Island Resort in Captiva, FL. The Annual Meeting will provide a platform for inter-committee collaborative discussions which will help answer this important question, 'How will US Sailing become the organization that all sailors want to be a part of?' After a morning general session with the staff presentation and a discussion of the organization’s Strategic Initiatives, the room will break into three groups. A focused moderated discussion will take place directing each group to this question by exploring the following issues:

How can US Sailing support local sailing organizations?
How can US Sailing grow the number of sailors?
How can US Sailing improve the safety of our sport?

We want you to be part of the conversation.

Who Should Attend? Anyone interested in sharing creative ideas and energy towards our goal of growing the sport, making it safer, and providing education resources. Please join us and bring along a friend. Help us double last year's attendance!
