Board of Directors
Pam Pamela Neuharth, President, Women's Comp Crew Coordinator

Pam started her rowing career in college, where she rowed for UC Berkeley. She continued to row off and on for years until she moved to Arizona where, ironically, she found her second rowing home in the desert with Rio Salado Rowing Club in 2013. Pam's favorite thing about rowing is group therapy in the pain cave followed by food, repeat.

Me website Wendy Dietrich, Para-Rowing Program Director

“When you hop into a boat, the potential for becoming part of something that is bigger and stronger and faster than your singular abilities is the essence of the sport.” (Jan Whiting, 3/18 Rowing magazine) Wendy started rowing in 1991 on the Harlem River in NYC in a wooden 2x. For the next 10 years, she lived in places without water – then, got back in a 1x after moving to Austin in 2002. Since 2004, she’s been sculling on Tempe Town Lake. And, after learning not to talk in a boat (well, most of the time!), she started sweep rowing about two years ago. She works with Rio’s “Can Do Crew” para-rowing program for people with disabilities.

Missing Brian McDermott, Vice President, Captain of Boats

Brian is a "veteran" of Rio Salado Rowing Club, and quite a bit of that experience has been at the Board level. Brian is a past President of the Rio Board, and you will find him at every RSRC Clean-Up Day! Brian is our resident expert boatman - thus his title "Captain of Boats". And we, quite literally, would not be seaworthy without him.

Missing Warren Alford, Director, Men's Competitive Crew Coordinator

Warren has been rowing for over 16 years and has been a Rio member for the past two years. He has a number of favorite boats, but he enjoys the speed and precision that a coxless pair requires. His most memorable rowing experience occurred during the men's open eights final on Buffalo River in East London, South Africa. The racing conditions were extremely unfavorable with crews battling against an ocean tide, waves, extreme winds, and rain. The 2km race ended with three crews sinking, one being his.
