Speaker Director Jodi Masters-Gonzalez: During her time as Commodore of Port Royal Yacht Club (PRYC) in 2020, S/C Jodi Masters-Gonzales successfully led her club through the pandemic without losing a single member due to the crisis. She attributes this success in large part to the thoughtful and considered nomination of leaders the preceding year which allowed the club the strike a balance between tradition and evolution during this period of time.

Under the leadership of S/C Masters-Gonzales, PRYC secured a liquor license, revived its Racing Committee, brought back the newsletter, broke fundraising records, invented a new “socially distanced” dinghy event which became permanent, and completed a two-year effort to update its Constitution and Bylaws.

PRYC received the SCYA Pandemic Powerhouse Award which was created to recognize the outstanding achievement of SCYA member organizations in dealing with the circumstances surrounding the pandemic and actions taken during such an unprecedented time.

In 2021 S/C Masters-Gonzales was elected to the SCYA Board of Directors and led the creation of the newly formed MarCom Committee as Chairperson. She is the Editor of SCYA’s Searchlight newsletter and is a member of the Inclusive Boating Committee. Don’t miss S/C Masters-Gonzales’ encore presentation of Fiduciary Duty for Yachting Organizations (July 11, 2023) which was well received at this year’s R/C Seminar.
