And as an outgoing Commodore, I wanted to take the opportunity to expresses gratitude to a few folks in particular:
First, thanks to Matt Flickenger for serving as Commodore and then spending four more years on the board as Past Commodore. Matt is a relentless contributor to the ASC, and it was his vision and hard work that brought us our current fleet of teaching Lidos. That project transformed our educational program, and I can only hope that my contribution as Commodore was even half as positive as Matt’s.
Second, thanks to Nancy Back for stepping up to be Senior Vice Commodore. We have a history of extraordinary volunteers at the ASC, but rarely have we had somebody go from a brand-new member to a “oh my god how did we live without her” super-volunteer in such a short period of time. (And that goes for the whole Black clan!) I know Nancy will be an outstanding addition to the ASC leadership team.
Finally, my eternal gratitude goes out to Dave Verbrugge for stepping into the Commodore role. Being Commodore for the ASC is amazingly rewarding, but it’s a big job that just keeps growing as we expand our membership and mission. I don’t think I could’ve pulled off my two terms as Commodore without Dave’s help at every turn, and I’m hoping to return the favor while I serve as Past Commodore. Dave brings a great combination of wisdom, patience, and experience to his new role, and I know that the ASC will continue to grow and prosper under his stewardship.
It’s been an honor to serve as the ASC’s Commodore, and I’m certainly looking forward to the next two years on the board as Past Commodore. And I’m also looking forward to seeing lots of you awesome people at Courtney’s this coming Saturday! (And we’ll have party details available shortly…)
