Dear Crusaders Families,

We are slowly approaching the end of another swim season.  As you may be aware, the Board has been thinking hard about next season's plans.  One of the areas, we are trying to address before the end of the season is the composition of the DCSC Board.

In preparation for the DCSC Annual General Meeting on Saturday June 10th, nominations are now open for the following Executive positions:

Vice President Administration
Vice President Finance
Vice President Communications
Vice President Competitions

Key volunteer positions will also be filled at the AGM. They include:

Chair of Officials
Fundraising Chair
Equipment Coordinator
Splash Editor
Participation Points Coordinator
Team Manager

Nominations for any one of the above positions may be sent to Heather Myrer at or they can also be made from the floor at the AGM.  

Being part of the Board allows you to shape the direction and governance of the Club as we come close to a significant milestone: 50 years as a swim club.   If you are interested in volunteering your time on the DCSC Board next year but would like more information on the role, please feel free to email Heather or go to the Volunteer section of our website.
