Phoenix, Arizona, USA

US SAILING have voted in favour of restructuring the organization, reducing the size of its Board of Directors from 49 to 14. The decision was made after a vote at the organization's Annual General Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona on Friday 21 October, and after months of preparation and review. The new structure follows the direction that most national governing bodies for sports nationwide are adopting.

'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.
