Volunteering Opportunity – Cruise Host

In 2015 CYCT will sponsor ten cruises and every cruise needs a Cruise Host, someone to choose a location and plan events.  Your contact couple for this volunteering opportunity are Fleet Captains-Cruising Rich and Angie Morales. Probably 60% of a Cruise Hosts job is done just by choosing a location and getting CYCT members together.

Since there are no hosts for the April Cruise, a suggestion was made to me using the Daffodil Marine Festival Sunday April 12, 2015 as a No Host Cruise.  If you are interested in participating please go to www.tacomayachtclub.org. There you will find on the main page 2015 Daffodil Marine Festival “Shine Your Light” Click on it and all the information for the weekend will be at your finger tips from registration for your boat, food menu with prices for you to purchase, to a list of activities.  If you don’t want to bring your boat, there will be RV parking on the TYC premises, but registration is required and after March 13 there will be a wait list.  Registration can be done on line.  The parade begins at Tacoma Yacht Club and follows Ruston Way to Thea Foss Waterway on Sunday April 12, 11:30. For more information call 253-752-3555.

Volunteering Opportunity – Membership Chair

The CYCT member, or member couple, who occupies the Membership Chair position, is a member of the Board of Trustees, the governing body of CYCT. Since the beginning of 2015 the club has been without a Membership Chair and so the Board as a whole has taken over membership responsibilities.

Article VI, Section 10, of the by-laws, on page, 4, gives the complete and official description of the responsibilities of the Membership Chair and you can access the by-laws here.

The Membership Chair is responsible for recruiting new members and retaining existing members. Realistically, this means following up with people who have expressed an interest in CYCT, looking for ways to get the word out about our club and especially helping prospective members though the joining possess. You’ll help prospective members with everything from filling out a membership application to being inducted as a new member at a general meeting. Each new member receives a binder of information and a CYCT burgee, you’ll be responsible for ensuring those items are available to new members as well. Traditionally, the Membership Chair has also conducted the raffle that takes place at general meetings.

This is a great position, and a fun position, for anyone who’s outgoing and at least somewhat organized. The Membership Chair brings you into the inner circle of CYCT, you’ll meet lots of people and really get a sense for our great club.

As the new Membership Chair you will not be alone! The Past Membership Chair will be right by your side as will every member of the Board.

If you’d like to talk more about the Membership Chair position, please call CYCT Commodore Paul Case at 253-293-2161 or email him at paulrc40@yahoo.com
