About the Annual Meeting
These meetings are a unique opportunity for members to meet with the National Governing Body’s leadership and discuss relevant industry topics facing the sport, exchange ideas, reflect on progress, and look ahead to future plans.

Over 500 active volunteers comprise US SAILING’s councils and committees. Fifteen councils generate ideas to better serve our sport through their constituents and over 50 committees develop and execute national sailing programs. Meet these council and committee members and learn more about why and how these programs are implemented.

US SAILING’s Annual Meeting has something for everyone.
