It has been an amazing year! Our club has nearly doubled in size for last year, both our sail training programs have been completely full and a new youth program is taking hold. It is now time to vote in the board that will continue on the great momentum that has been building the last two years.
The process of selecting a board is the responsibility of the Rear Commodore, Jim Rosaschi. Jim brought to our meeting the following slate to be considered by the membership at our October Business Meeting on the 25th. Which we accepted through the regular process.
Commodore - Jason Kipp
Vice Commodore - Rich Faber
Fleet Captain - Clay Ostrom
Treasurer - Lydia Brown
Secretary - Bobby Kuwimara
Cruising Captain - Naomi Emmerson
Past Commodore - Timothy Ehrlich
After the board accepted the slate, Naomi Emmerson announced that she would be running opposed to Jason Kipp as Commodore. When there are two candidates for president this is the normal process. Jim selects the candidate for the nominated list, then anyone who would like to run opposed would announce their candidacy. The next step is that each person will present themselves at the meeting in October and we will need to have a Quorum and a vote for the Commodore. We will have two votes if there are no further changes. The first vote will be for Commodore, then the second vote will be to accept the rest of the board as presented to the members. Should Naomi receive the winning vote we will have an open position for Cruising Captain.
It is very important that members do their best to attend the meeting this October, either in person or by proxy. Currently, the club has no provisions for a digital proxy. That is being proposed at the next board meeting and will also likely be voted upon at the October meeting.
It has been a great pleasure serving the Nevada Yacht Club over the past two years. If my personal circumstances were different I would continue on indefinitely, but the wind has changed and I must adjust my sails. When our trip is over Kari and I will be returning to California, I still have business interests in Vegas and will return often and hope to see many of you frequently.
