General Meetings

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.
