Alec Buchness, SI TreasurerAlec gathering signatures for the “Sign the Surfboard” Campaign

Congratulations to our September Volunteer of the Month, Alec Buchness! Alec currently serves as Vice Chair of the Sebastian Inlet Chapter, though that’s just one of the many hats he wears as a chapter activist and volunteer!

” Alec Buchness has his hands in everything our chapter does. No task is too big, none too small. Our chapter has multiple projects and campaigns ongoing at any given time; Alec is always the first to offer to help wherever there’s a need. He’s great at pulling together a group to tackle something that’s on a deadline. He’s poised for leadership whenever our cranky old chairman (me) steps down,” says Sebastian Inlet Chair Mike Daniel. “And in the truly-important skill department, he knows how to throw a good party. Just ask anyone who’s been to our International Surfing Day celebrations! “
