Fellow Members of Michigan Swimming,
I hope everyone is enjoying the new year! Before you know it, our championship season will be upon us. Best of luck to all of our stellar athletes and talented coaches as they prepare for these meets.
I write today to share that Michigan Swimming, Inc. is seeking several individuals to fill various vacancies in our volunteer governance structure.
Meet Scheduling Coordinator: The Meet Scheduling Coordinator chairs the Meet Scheduling Committee. This committee works with the Age Group Vice-Chair, Senior Vice-Chair, and other key member stakeholders to develop a skeleton meet schedule for each season, solicits bids based on that schedule, and reviews those bids for on-the-published-schedule approval. The Meet Scheduling Coordinator will also be responsible for participating in occasional organization strategic planning activities when relevant. This position is non-division and reports directly to the General Chair.
Diversity Coordinator: The Diversity Coordinator chairs the Diversity Committee. This committee works with various key member stakeholders to analyze the organization’s current diversity efforts, propose new efforts, and promote initiatives to the organization’s members. The Diversity Coordinator will also be responsible for participating in occasional organization strategic planning activities when relevant. This position is non-division and reports directly to the General Chair.
If you wish to express interest in any of these roles or ask questions about any of these roles, please contact me (email@example.com) at your earliest convenience to discuss next steps. Expressing interest does not guarantee appointment; instead, it is the first step in evaluating your interest, skillset, and overall fit for the role. That said, I encourage anyone with an interest in any of these positions to reach out. We are always looking for new people to get involved!
