GTYC Organizational Structure

The GTYC is a private club managed by a board of directors who operate under By-Laws and policies approved by the membership. The GTYC is structured along the traditional format for private yacht clubs. The Commodore is assisted by a Vice Commodore, Rear Commodore and the Immediate Past Commodore. In addition, there are 6 Directors. A non-voting Secretary and Treasurer complete the board structure. There are also six standing committees, a club manager and several supplemental committees. It takes a lot of people to keep the gears moving smoothly. Volunteering your time to the club is a fundamental responsibility of membership.
