What is an Officer of the Day?

In a nutshell, the OOD provides a welcome to visiting boating

members and assistance with daily functioning when there is limited paid staff available.

This person is the ambassador for DYC, the helpful hand, and the connection for resolving

concerns over weekend time frames.

Our OOD program will run Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays and on, long weekends, we will ask for coverage for holiday Mondays as well. We will need to fill 14 weekends.
