Interested in Serving on the board or a committee?

Serving on the Board for WSA-OC is a tremendously rewarding experience.  It affords you the opportunity to leverage your existing skills and learn new ones as you endeavor to evolve the club and reach the goals of our non-profit organization.  By volunteering as a Flag Officer or Director Role, you will have the opportunity to fully engage with boat owner members, general membership and your fellow board members. You efforts will be rewarding and fun, while making a difference for women and our philanthropy partners.

If the Board isn't for you, please consider assisting the Board by joining one of the many committee opportunities we have available and volunteering to help at WSA-OC events and Philanthropic events.
