President - Jackie Rand
I have been involved with rowing in some manner for 16 years, 5 of those years with association with the Mendota Rowing Club. I started as a member in 2015 to primarily work on my sculling skills and did attend some races. In 2018, I began coaching for Mendota as a Master's Coach for the morning practices. Rowing is my not so secret passion and I look forward to continuing this sport for a long time. I have experience as both a rowing member and as a coach, I have also rowed competitively as a high school and college athlete, and since we have added a juniors program to Mendota, that experience can help me assist the board in navigating this new area.
As a board member, I hope to be involved in making decisions that encourage rowing, maintain member safety and demonstrate the joy that rowing can bring. I also want to better understand how a rowing club operates and figure out how I can hopefully improve that operation for the future. Rowing is the sport that I have stuck with the longest and the one that I always return back too, no matter how many times I say I am never erging again. I want to help Mendota show that enthusiasm and joy to new and existing members alike.
Term expires 2022. Jackie can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
