A Member Nomination for the Annual Meeting Elections

 September 20, 2017


As per the Constitution and Bylaws of the Keyport Yacht Club,

We the undersigned are proud to nominate Keyport Yacht Club Member and Trustee, Bill Reseter aka ‘Billy Bonez’, for the Officer position of Vice Commodore.


During his time at KYC, Bill has volunteered his time and expertise to the House, Bar, Dock, New Member Activities, Cruising, Grounds, and Entertainment committees as part of his dedication to the continuing successes of KYC. He has helped move small boats around and has participated in racing events as well.


Bill, as the House Chair, has demonstrated an ability to manage and direct volunteers while treating them with respect and civility. He is an effective leader and manager.


Bill is a Trustee on the KYC Board of Governors, actively participating and willingly offering his time to help resolve Club issues. He was instrumental in getting all the committees to agree on the shared usage of the lower lot during the Junior Sailing season, so that members could have access.


Billy Bonez has made significant contributions to the ongoing success of Friday Night at the KYC Bar.

Not only has he performed on a regular basis, but organized fund raisers, encouraged other members to participate, and even attracted music interested new members.


Bill has the managerial experience, temperament, and the diplomacy to be an outstanding officer.


We nominate Bill Reseter for Vice Commodore.
