Calling all Rowing Stewards! If you were a donor or volunteer in 2017, then you are invited to our annual Stewards Meeting in the Rose Auditorium at Conibear Shellhouse on Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2018 at 6 p.m.
At the meeting we will hear from Coaches Yasmin Farooq and Michael Callahan about the past year and their outlook on the upcoming season. In addition, our Board co-chairpersons Jane Powers and Trevor Vernon will give an update on the Stewards involvement with the program, and our program support and events going forward.
Please join us. Parking will be provided. Thank you and Go Huskies!
The Washington Rowing Stewards, through an active presence of alumni and friends of the program, work to connect and inspire our community to support and promote the men’s and women’s rowing teams at the University of Washington.
The Board of Washington Rowing Stewards consists of a core group of men and women, representing varying generations and perspectives. The Board assists the coaches and the University in raising money, guiding endowment funds to maximize the opportunities presented by these gifts, and plays a principal role in planning for the future of the program. The Executive Committee works throughout the year to support the program and coordinate the alumni/friends/parents program. If you are interested in joining the Board, please contact one of our co-chairs.
