Special Meeting - USA Swimming House of Delegates

From USA Swimming, 2/19/2021

Note: This is a special meeting of the USA Swimming House of Delegates (not the South Texas House of Delegates)

SAVE THE DATE - Special Meeting of the House of Delegates

To the USA Swimming Community,

As communicated last week, USA Swimming must make numerous bylaw, rule, policy and operational changes over the course of the next few months to remain in compliance with the updated United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee Bylaws and the updated Ted Stevens Olympic and Amateur Sports Act. The Governance Committee and its Working Groups will spend the next few months deliberating and determining the best path forward in regard to the reforms.

Many of these proposed changes will require approval by the House of Delegates. Therefore, in an effort to streamline and simplify the approval process by the House, USA Swimming is planning to virtually host a special meeting of the House of Delegates on June 30, 2021 pursuant to Article 6.2 of the Corporate Bylaws. This special meeting of the House will be limited to compliance updates requiring HOD approval, and the annual House of Delegates meeting will still take place in September with a full agenda.

Additional information (and the requisite Board resolution) will follow; however, please save the date of June 30, 2021.

As always, if you have any questions, comments or if you would like any additional information please contact Kiki Laino, Director of Business Affairs, at [email protected].
