US Aquatic Sports Convention - VIRTUAL Convention Now

Sep 22, 2020 - Sep 26, 2020
August, 30 2020

Description

US Aquatic Sports Convention and the USA Swimming convention to be held in Jacksonville, Florida, September 22-26 has been canceled. USA Swimming will host a virtual convention.

On May 1 USA Swimming received the news below from the United States Aquatics Sports (USAS) regarding their decision to cancel this year’s Convention, scheduled for September 22-27, 2020 in Jacksonville, Florida. We support this very difficult decision and agree that this is in the best interest of the health and safety of our members and all those scheduled to attend Convention.

USA Swimming has made the decision to move forward with a virtual Convention for its delegates during this same September timeframe. This virtual event will include, at a minimum, the House of Delegates meeting, legislative action, and the Board of Directors election. Affected Committees are encouraged to reschedule their meetings to best suit their needs.

Pivoting all planning to this virtual event will begin immediately and we will provide further information as soon as it is available.

Should you have immediate questions, please reach out to Gina Mensay at gmensay@usaswimming.org.
Thank you.


May 1, 2020

To all United States Aquatics Sports Affiliated Organizations,  As much of the country remains in flux as this devastating COVID-19 global pandemic continues, we have officially made the decision to cancel this year’s USAS Convention, scheduled for September 22-27, 2020 in Jacksonville, Florida. 

Many factors have weighed on this decision, namely the overall uncertainty of the circumstances, the likely inability for us to gather safely as a large group or travel across the country, and the effect this ongoing situation has on our ability to plan, coordinate and execute this extensive and interactive in-person assembly. 

We thank you for your understanding and wish everyone and their families continued good health. 

Best regards,
Bill Smith
President
