Committees

Committee Chairs

Committee Chairs help to run the Atlanta Rowing Club on a day-to-day basis and sit on the board as voting members. Each committee chair can recruit other members to fulfill their responsibilities. Volunteers are at the core of our club and we encourage members to make part of the boathouse their own by participating on one of the committees. Beyond the board, committee chairs, and committee members our rowers can also support the club by volunteering for projects found here.
