Parent Meeting:
Our annual Parent Meeting will occur towards the end of September (date TBD) at the NHS Forum Room.  This is a great opportunity to come, ask questions and learn specifics on what to expect during the year.  We are also working to have our current year Spirit Wear options available to try on as well as team suits for the year.  More to come on this meeting in the next week.
 
Team Suits:
At our parent meeting, we will be having a team suit fitting night.  We will be working with Sun and Snow this year to provide a few options for your swimmer.  Again, more information to follow. 
 
Board of Directors:
We are currently seeking volunteers to join our Board of Directors for the upcoming year.  Our current positions filled and open are as follows:
President:  Amy Brooks
Vice President:  Betsy Veliu
Treasurer:  Open
Secretary:  Debby Bezzina
Meet Director:  Chris Cadwell
Membership Coordinator:  Lisa Carson
Social Director:  Brian Vanairsdale
Volunteer Director:  Sara Zaremski (last year… looking for a volunteer to shadow)
Member at Large:  Open
Gear Director:  Danielle Holland and Karen Reinowski

I am in desperate need of a volunteer for the Treasurer position.  I have filled this role for the past five years and need to transition it to another member of the club.  Please reach out to me if you are able and willing to help.  Additionally, this will be Sara Zaremski’s last year as the Volunteer Coordinator.  If you are interested in this position, please let me know as this year is a great opportunity to shadow Sara and learn the ropes before she moves on.  We are also working this year to create a few parent sub-committees to help organize team activities, our annual banquet, etc.  If you are interested in helping with the club, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

Finally, please keep in mind, the Board of Directors, including myself, is comprised of parent volunteers.  We work together to help your children and this club thrive.  Always know that you can reach out to me at any time with any questions you may have including meets, dues, calendar snafu’s I may have made, upcoming team events, etc.  I will do my best to respond to you quickly.  I have two swimmers with BAC, Aidan (13) and Addison (11) who are both Bulldogs so hopefully I will bump into you at NHS on any given day this year.  Addison also plays travel basketball and travel softball in Northville (which I coach).  Additionally I work full-time as a financial analyst and have third daughter who is a competitive gymnast.  It’s busy, but it’s worth it.

Again, I welcome you to BAC and look forward to seeing you at the pool!  More updates to follow as we finalize the Short-Course meet schedule, the parent meeting and our Fall team event!
