About Our Club

The Bainbridge Island Sportsman Club (BISC) is a membership organization formed in 1929 by a group of hunters, fishers and conservationists.

Governance

The BISC is operated and maintained by volunteers drawn from its membership. The BISC is governed by four Officers (President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer) and nine Trustees, who together comprise the Board of Directors. All Board members are elected by the BISC membership, with the Officers serving one year terms and the Trustees serving three year terms. The Board of Directors oversees the operation of BISC, the management of its property, and its legal and financial interests. It is accountable to the BISC membership for its stewardship of the BISC. BISC members are welcome to attend BISC Board meetings.
