Captain "Tony" Ford)

Commodore's Corner

Ahoy Mates!

As SYC Leadership brings closure to 2024, we are concentrating on several key goals that will allow SYC to keep the momentum in growing SYC's relationship with the local Community, Federal and DC Governments and our Boathouse Row family to include WYC, DYC, EPBC and ACBA). Be sure to keep this e-mail handy to help track our progress. Our key goals for 2024 will be as follows:

1. Obtain our SYC Lease

2. Update Bylaw Articles to include the SYC website, social media, but not limited to other important governance matters that need updating in the bylaws​

3. Fellowship through fund raising – 1 SYC Captains Ball (1 Formal Affair and 1 seasonal ball (Summer/Fall)), 1 SYC Crab Feast, 1 SYC night out, sponsor/host another summer jazz venue

4. Participate in updated "Stakeholders" meetings with DC Government Agencies regarding the Anacostia River initiatives with one or more of our partner organizations (i.e. PRYCA, Anacostia Waterfront Trust, 11th Street Bridge Park, other surrounding Boathouse Row Clubs, ANC 6B, SE Community friends and associates, etc).

5. Continue to work more closely with our established 501c3 nonprofit partners to help obtain grants for our outreach efforts, support for historic preservation, education, marina grants, etc.

6. Use email, website and social media to communicate better with our supporters

7. Fulfill open SYC membership opportunities via "Fellowship Fridays"

8. Remove abandoned vessels from SYC premises

These are just a few of the top level 2024 goals for SYC's forward progress.

NO SYC CAPTAIN WILL BE LEFT BEHIND OR UNDER THE RADAR! WE NEED YOU IN 2024! MAKE SYC A PRIORITY in 2024! 

Sincerely,

SYC Commodore

Tony Ford
