Vesper Leadership Team

Vesper Interior

Vesper Boat Club is led by a group of elected officers and a board of directors. In addition, there is a board of trustees that serves by appointment of the board of directors. Standing committees are typically lead by a member of the board of directors, or an officer of the club.

Elections are held annually in December/January and all members in good standing, with at least two years as a member, are eligible to vote. Officers are elected for a one year term and board members are elected for a two year term, with half of the directorships elected each year.
