MBYC’s business and administrative affairs are handled by a Board of Trustees and four elected bridge officers comprised of the Commodore, Vice Commodore, Rear Commodore and Fleet Captain. The club has one full time employee, its caretaker/chef. Chairpersons volunteering from the general membership head all social and operational committees and events throughout the year. All members are encouraged to participate in any cruise, party, meeting and other activity that interest them. Self-help with respect to the maintenance, operations and social functions of the club is a valued tradition at Meydenbauer and new members quickly find areas to lend their talents.


The Board of Trustees meets monthly except July and August and its minutes are published for all members to review. We have nine monthly dinner meetings held on the second Friday of the month September through May. A men’s group meets weekly for Wednesday lunches and the Women’s InterC lub (WIC) group have monthly lunches at other clubs throughout Puget Sound .
