2022 Annual General Membership Meetings
The 2022 Rendezvous was the Great Lakes Cruising Club’s first all-member general gathering since the start of COVID. The second will be the 2022 GLCC and Great Lakes Foundation Annual General Membership Meeting weekend.
The 2022 Great Lakes Cruising Club’s Annual General Meeting and Change of Watch will be Oct. 28–30 in Port Huron, Mich. (D-1), the GLCC’s official “corporate” home.

Friday evening’s gatherings will begin at GLCC Headquarters for an open house with Christmas shopping. Next is a visit to the nearby Maritime Center at Vantage Point for a casual meet-and-greet with heavy hors d’oeuvres.
Saturday’s activities include our Board meetings, time for shopping in town and seeing the sights, an optional wine tasting, and a beanbag baseball game. Our Annual General Membership Meetings will include a financial report, the election of the 2022–2023 Flag officers and Board of Directors, and a “State of the Club” briefing from the Commodore.
The Change of Watch will include several changes to both the Bridge and Board. Please join our newly elected Commodore, along with his freshly charged colleagues and veteran Board Members, as they assume control of the helm. Rounding out the evening will be awards presentations, and a guest speaker from the U.S. Coast Guard.
Members and guests are encouraged to wear name tags at all times
