SMYC Chapter Blue Gavel

The International Order of the Blue Gavel is an organization of past commodores. The mission of the IOBG is to recognize past commodores of the international yachting community and unite them in order to promote the highest ideals of yachting and preserve its customs and traditions through social, educational and humanitarian programs. Past commodores are offered to join this selective group after completing their term of office by a majority of each chapters IOBG members, it is not an automatic selection and is a privilege to be sworn into the organization. 

The IOBG has a board at the international level that meets four times a year at regional meetings and an annual meeting. The Area vice-presidents represent these regions of the country: Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, and Northwest and North Central. Each area is divided into districts which consist of chapters (yacht clubs) or members-at-large. All members have voting delegates at the annual meeting in October each year.

The District 15 is Southern California and comprises of 103 members from 14 yacht clubs and members-at-large. Your SMYC chapter has 14 members. The 2018 Board for SMYC Chapter: President- Susan Rodriguez, Secretary- Marybeth Thayer and Treasure- Bill Thayer. 

All yacht club bridge officers and members are always welcome to events such as the Yacht Club Management Seminar and social fund-raisers. We have several programs with IOBGA (the auxiliary consisting of spouses of past commodores) which we put together during the year.
