Welcoming 2023 and your new LPBYC board of directors

As we break free from past restrictions and with what we’ve learned from listening to our members in past surveys and at our 2022 events, 2023 is shaping up to be a great year on the water. This year, we have a refreshed board of directors – and some new members – and we want to hear from each of you! I hope you’ll take five minutes to share your thoughts in this brief survey. We’ll use what we learn from the survey to better plan events and activities for you in 2023:

Nearly all private yacht clubs around the lakes require visitors to be members of a reciprocal club.
