The Hilo Yacht Club is a nonprofit 501c-7 corporation operating on behalf of all members. We are governed by a Board of Trustees elected by the members. The Committee system is very effective and responsive to member needs and concerns. It is the Committees that do the research and make proposals to the Board for consideration and adoption.

Joining a committee is a great way to learn about your club, meet fellow members and to provide input to make improvements. You can get more information about the committees on this web site. Email the committee chair if you wish to join or email the Office Manager, Jacen Friess, at
