'This restructure will increase the effectiveness of the organization as the Board of Directors will now meet monthly to make decisions,' said US SAILING President Janet BAXTER. 'This change demonstrates that US SAILING is trying to modernize the way we work and facilitates meeting our mission of encouraging participation and promoting excellence in sailing.'
A transitional Board of Directors has been created for the first year of the restructure, which will take effect after the close of business of the Annual General Meeting on Sunday 23 October. Next year, US SAILING's members will vote directly for the organization's Board of Directors.
