Introducing your new WCM board for 2012, we have Debbie Swigert, Gordon Bell, Bruce Cousins, Loren Druz. Sid Dowell will sit on the Board as an alternate. Continuing Board members are: Amy Bradford, John King, Mike Piazza, Theresa Rounseveille, Dave Skvarna, Chris Stewart, Walt Tuholski, and Mary Williams. We thank the out-going board members for their ardent work. Peter Guadagni, who is now serving as chairman of Pacific Masters, received a special award for his many years of service on WCM board and behind the scenes work that helped to build the Team over the past 10 years.
Highlights of the meeting delivered a message of stability, unity and performance through 2011, which is expected to continue through 2012. Fresh ideas for 2012 include an incentive program to encourage participation in open water events and a collaborative program with USMS and the City of Walnut Creek to teach adults how to swim. More information will be posted about these program and other WCM events on the website, on Facebook and on the WCM bulletin board at the pool.
A calendar with WCM swimming and social events for 2012 is available at the pool. Also, if you are interested in signing up for a leadership role in developing some of the events we do as a Team, please look for that sign-up sheet at the pool as well. Our Board meetings are the first Tuesday of the month at 6pm in the Clarke classroom, all members are welcome at the meetings. You can find minutes from the Board meetings on the website by signing in and then clicking on the “board” tab on the website.
