Re: Michigan Swimming Elections
Our annual House of Delegates meeting is Sunday, October 7th, at EMU. It is very important that all Clubs have a voting member attend. Any new legislation is voted on at this time as well as election of new Board members. All too often we hear complaints on issues within our LSC, but very few are willing to get involved. At the very least make an effort to attend and cast your vote. There are many committees that are in need of volunteers, as well as multiple Board positions to be filled.
Board Positions open:
General Chair: 1 year term
Administrative Chair: 2 year
Finance Chair: 1 year
Treasurer: 2 year
Program Operations: 2 year
Diversity: 2 year
Safe Sport: 2 year
Complete descriptions of the duties of these offices available on the website: page 16 of the bylaws (in Governing documents). Committee descriptions begin on page 25.
If interested in running for a Board position, please send a brief bio to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 7th.
A slate of candidates will be sent out at least 2 weeks before elections.
