Bluewater Cruising Association is Looking for Volunteers

BCA Volunteer

Aug 9, 2016

Bluewater Cruising Association has grown from a very small, one chapter organization to a large, multi-chapter organization with more than 800 members. Large organizations volunteer management structure.

At its March 2016 Strategic Planning Session, the Board identified six strategic directions. One is ‘Mobilize more members as volunteers.’ The position of Volunteer Coordinator was identified by the Board as an integral part of the Association’s structure for recruiting, mentoring, and retaining volunteers.

In the past, when BCA was a small organization, passing the volunteer torch from one member to another wasn’t a problem: a bit of friendly pleading, some gentle arm-twisting, and/or other inducements were often all it took. In some situations, finding a replacement for a position still isn’t an issue.

From the airport, I headed to the Regatta Village in Port de Plaisance. Wednesday being ‘Day 0’ was registration day of the Regatta. Teams were out on the water to shake out sails, on the docks making last-minute preparations and in the Regatta Village for registration and most importantly picking up their cases of Heineken.
