District 11 North Training Conference
Steve Perez, Auxiliary member of North Shore Flotilla 1 was awarded the Outstanding Performance Award at the annual District 11 North Training Conference held in Sacramento on March 14-16th. Perez performed 570 Vessel Safety Checks in 2013. Vessel Safety Checks are an integral part of the many missions the Auxiliary conducts. A Vessel Safety Check is a voluntary inspection of a recreational boat. Our goal is to help recreational boaters have the appropriate safety equipment on their boat and to point out any potential hazards that might jeopardize their day on the water. Congratulations Auxiliarist Perez for a job well done!
John Boyne (L) and Leon Borden attended the annual District Training Conference in Sacramento. Boyne is the Vice Flotilla Commander for the Reno Flotilla 3 while Borden, also a member of Reno Flotilla 3, is the Sierra Division Commander. The annual training conference is an opportunity for Auxiliarists to take class room instruction in the many facets of Auxiliary responsibilities such as Operations, Vessel Safety Checks, and Recreational Boating Safety.
