Volunteer Chairs

The Oregon Women's Sailing Association (OWSA) is an all volunteer 501(c)(3). Our organization is comprised of volunteers willing to devote time and energy to oversee the operation of OWSA. In addition to the board of directors, OWSA is fortunate to have a host of volunteers who act as program chairs coordinating our educational activities and looking to the future to improve our educational offerings and enhance the experience of our members.


There are a myriad of opportunities to become involved as a volunteer for OWSA. Opportunities range in duration from a couple of hours assisting with a program to chairing a program in the future.  For more information about how to get involved, contact any of our Board members.

The positions below are our Chairs and other volunteers who help make OWSA a success; they are listed in alphabetical order by the member's last name. (Note: We can't possibly list all volunteers on this page, but have attempted to show the named positions that we attempt to fill each year to keep OWSA afloat.)
