I’ve served as board secretary for the past three years, and am happy to continue to do so. The next three years will present some real challenges for the club: managing growth sustainably and finding us a new home. Having spent these past years closely involved in those issues, I think I bring a good perspective on how to work through them. I hope you’ll give me the opportunity to do so.
The board will be focused on some very important topics this upcoming year, including finding a new women’s sweep coach, finding a new boathouse location, and fundraising for the new boathouse, as well as ongoing tasks such as marketing the Learn-to-Row program, continuing to recruit new members, balancing the needs of newer and more experienced members, prioritizing budget items, and maintaining a good budget so we can provide the club with the level of coaching and equipment members need and want while keeping member dues manageable. As a board member, I would try to represent all Station L members, and make decisions based on what is best for the club overall, and all its members. To that end, I would work to ‘keep my ear to the ground’ to keep up on the issues that concern, interest, excite, confuse, and inspire our wide range of members. I have experience fundraising for non-profits that could be helpful, and have run events staffed by volunteers so understand how to use volunteers optimally. I’m a big proponent of transparency and clear, effective communication. As a member with 2 1/2 years of rowing experience, I can relate to the issues that concern newer rowers as well as more experienced folks.
I have been a Station L member since I graduated the LTR program in spring 2015. This will be my 4th year rowing and participating as an active Club member. Over the past four years, I’ve seen the Club expand by leaps and bounds, and I’ve seen the Women’s program in particular mature into a real competitive force filled with strong, dedicated rowers. This growth will naturally bring with it some growing pains, but I believe in the skills and thoughtfulness of our Members to help keep us focused on our ultimate vision — a vision of providing inclusive rowing opportunities to the entire community, and of supporting each other as we grow as individual rowers and stronger teammates. My goal is to lend my business & consulting background and overall love for this Club as a steady and professional woman’s voice to the Board’s activities.
