NWSA Annual Meeting; Partnership with US SAILING
NWSA will hold a strategic planning meeting at its annual meeting in Colorado Springs, CO, March 14th. The outcome will produce a business plan for the next two years, with more programs and fun events for NWSA members. The meeting will be followed by two days of meetings with the Women's Sailing Committee of US SAILING to work on the new partnership. We believe the partnership will provide NWSA members with access to programs we do not now provide and likewise provide women in US SAILING with access to our programs.
