Dear TSM Families,
With TSM Swimathon only hours away, OTC trip around the corner, annual Banquet in preparation, and some really serious training going on at our home pool, it's clear that 2018 TSM Program is active and thriving!
It's also a good time to remind that our program thrives more when we have participation from our parents. There are no shortage of opportunities to get involved. In addition to the activities named above, another one is coming up.
Election of Directors!
Each year TSM families elect members to fill open positions on the TSM Board of Directors. This year we have two open positions, each with 3-year terms beginning on September 1. This letter serves as notice that nominations are now open, and will close on May 15. Election by electronic ballot will follow, and the results will be announced at the Annual Meeting to be held on June 26 this year. If you would like to nominate someone, or be considered as a candidate yourself, please reach out to any current board member including me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and your interest will be forwarded to the Election Committee.
Board members are active members in good standing with TSM. They play a role on team policy and often act as a liaison between the parent body and the Board. Most importantly board members are Moms and Dads just like you who care about the future of the program. Check out the TSM website to see short bios and contact information of the current board members (teamsantamonica.org under “Coaches”, upper left hand corner). As we join to support our swimmers tomorrow at the Swimathon, feel free to reach out to any board member you see. We welcome any inquiry and would enjoy chatting you about the process and what the commitment entails.
See you at the pool!
Water Safe, Water Strong. Go TSM!
