2022 Annual Meeting Information January 30th 



SAYRA leadership is looking forward to bringing back our in-person annual meeting at the DeSoto Hotel in Savannah, Georgia. We are pleased to partner locations with US Sailing so that we can maximize the learning opportunities for our SAYRA members. 


The 2022 US Sailing National Sailing Program Symposium (NSPS) which is a 3-day conference Thursday - Saturday. NSPS is the only conference of its kind that brings together program directors, instructors, volunteers, parents, club leadership and industry representatives to share and learn best practices with one another about running, maintaining and improving sailing programing for all ages! Networking, hallway meetings and industry best practices are all shared from clubs and programs all over the country. In 2019, held in Jacksonville, FL had over 350 participants. Something for everyone. We recognize that it is an investment for clubs to support participants attending but the opportunity to learn from leaders around the country is significant. Don't miss out!
