The Generational Outreach and Access (GenOA) Committee is the latest initiative at RMYS.
Targeted (But not restricted) to members aged 18-35+, this sub committee of member services has a mission to engage with younger members and improve access to facilities to appeal to new members through the following objectives:
– To organise events targeted to younger members.
– To facilitate connections between younger members and skippers or boats.
– To increase engagement between younger members and the club’s facilities.
– To include the perspective of younger members in club developments and opportunities
The GenOA’s meet on the first friday of every month for a laid back and mainly social committee meeting followed by drinks in the Olympic Bar. There’s usually a theme so make sure to check back and see what antics they’ve been up to as they work.
If you’re interested in joining the GenOA committee, flick an email through to Nadine -TabakNR@Gmail.com, or if you just want to come along and support us, come say hi in the bar as we grab a drink for our next meeting!
Update from the GenOA’s
Even through a snap lock down we can make it work!
Last Friday, June 4, the GenOA committee met for their first official (non party) committee meeting and smashed out some fantastic content. They not only have their mission and vision statement but have a full draft set of terms of reference ready for review. They’re well under way with strategic plans in place to move forward with their many goals.
Next month’s theme is OpShop Fancy dress and will be held in the Olympic Bar on Friday July 2, 2021.
