I love telling stories about organizations and people. As chair of the Communications Committee I work with Kass Fincher and Norm Brown, who create KILO, the Club newsletter; post on the Club’s Facebook page; work with the media; and generally communicate with members to make sure they know about all the great things happening at the Club.

As Cruising Chairman, I schedule boating events that are generally a few days or more. These events promote a cruising lifestyle of living on a boat for extended periods and traveling from place to place for pleasure.
