The squadron general meeting is held on the first Thursday of each month, with the exception of
July and August. We take this time off for cruising! The general meeting is open to all are: a dessert
auction (Nov.) where members donate their wonderful desserts to entice eager bidders; a nautical
auction is held at the June meeting; the Christmas party with food or cash donations to charity; and
a special celebration of our USPS Founder’s Day in February. The latter is a time to become a true
Poverty Bay Pirate, in full costume or at least wearing an earring, or forfeiting a one dollar fine to
the squadron treasure chest.
Executive Board Meetings
E-Board meetings are open to all members, but only the E-Board members are able to vote. Voting members
are the: Commander, Executive Officer, Education Officer, Administrative Officer, Squadron Secretary,
Squadron Treasurer, the three E-Board members at large and the immediate past commander. The meetings
are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month, most generally at the home of the Squadron Commander.
