November Meeting

US Sailing’s President Rich Jepsen

Topic(s) will center around the theme, “What can US Sailing do for you – the member?” Discuss the changes that have been made recently within the US Sailing organization, the new strategic plan, a bit about the Siebel Sailors program, the Olympics, and whatever else pops up from the audience.

Rich will be be seeking opinions and thoughts from the membership regarding what we think? Where and how can US Sailing improve? Where should the organization be focused to improve sailing for us – what do we need from them to advance sailing and be better served?

His visit is part of his national listening tour to learn how US Sailing can better serve the sport, those in it, and expand it to others.
