2020 LSC Committee Applications are NOW OPEN!
Club Presidents & Head Coaches – Please forward this message to your athletes, coaches, and parents. We need as many hands “on deck” as possible, and we need your help to communicate this ask to critical constituencies. If you have questions, please reach out to me directly.
Fellow members of Michigan Swimming,
During our annual meeting of the Michigan Swimming House of Delegates at the end of September, club delegates approved a significant governance restructuring. As part of this restructuring, committees have been elevated to a much more significant and important role in our LSC. Committees will operate with more autonomy and responsibility than ever before, and they will support the overall strategic objectives outlined by the Board of Directors and House of Delegates.
To make this new structure successful, we need as many excited members to serve on these committees as possible! If you thought about getting further involved with Michigan Swimming but weren’t sure how, this is a great way to get started. We are looking for all levels of experience, all roles (coaches, athletes, officials, parents, etc.), and all mindsets to be represented on committees.
If you are interested in serving, please complete the short application linked below. Most fields are optional, but providing information helps us place you on committees that are of interest to you and leverage your unique skillset.
Committee Application Link:
Deadline: Sunday, October 20, 2019 at 11:45pm Eastern Time
All committees appointments will be effective on January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 unless otherwise communicated. All members currently serving on committees that are interested in continuing must re-apply; there will be no automatic carryover of members.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly. I am happy to discuss involvement on any of these committees with you, and I am happy to help find other ways for you to get involved if you are looking for something different than a committee.
I appreciate you considering service on an LSC committee!
