Volunteer Opportunities @ Pleon
August 31, 2015


Hello Pleon Families,

As you know one of the things that makes Pleon Yacht Club unique is that it is run by and for junior sailors.  While the core summer program is run by juniors, parental volunteerism is a critical component to our success.

Pleon is governed by an independent Board of Directors who all volunteer their time to support Pleon.  The role of the Board is to establish policies related to program curriculum and club operations, oversee financial matters, and hiring of the Executive Director.  Pleon also has a Program Committee that works closely with the Board, Executive Director and Commodore in developing the program offering and execution of the summer program.

Pleon is looking for volunteers interested in joining Program Committee this September.  The Committee generally meets as a full group once a month in the evening, with sub-committees meeting more frequently as needed.

We are looking for volunteers for several roles on Program Committee, including:

  • Program Communications:  Parent Information Night, Summer Program Brochure, Summer Handbook, Regatta Calendar Preparation and Communication


  • Registration for the Summer Program


  • Development: Fundraising and Sponsorship outreach, Event Management


  • Shoulder Seasons (Fall and Spring)


  • Fleet Maintenance:  Trailers, Club Sonars, Optis, and 420s


Each of the above areas will have multiple volunteers so no one is expected to cover any area individually.  If you are interested in becoming involved with Program Committee, please contact one of the following people.  Thank you in advance for your consideration.


Lisa Adam, Progam Committee Co-Chair,

Lisa Keith, Program Committee Co-Chair,

Ben Blaisdell, Board Nominating,
