Call for Nominations to the MNSI Board of Directors

Dear Minnesota Swimming Community,

The Minnesota Swimming (MNSI) Nominating Committee is excited to invite all members of the Minnesota Swimming community to apply to serve MNSI as a member of the organization's Board of Directors or on one of its committees.

This is a fantastic opportunity to give back to the swimming community and to be a part of a great community of leaders. The MNSI Board of Directors is a 501(c)(3) non-profit board, and it's responsibilities include directing the mission, vision, and core values of the organization. Leaders from many different clubs and backgrounds are needed to fulfill these responsibilities.

The Nominating Committee requests that members interested in serving complete a short interest form by Monday, February 3, 2020. The form is meant to give the Nominating Committee an idea of your strengths and what you feel you would bring to the MNSI Board of Directors.

Candidates should complete a short interest form to be considered for an opening. Priority will be given to candidates who complete the form.


A link to the interest form is available here:

The Nominating Committee will review applications by Friday, February 14, 2020. A member of the Nominating Committee will schedule a brief telephone meeting in late February with each applicant to discuss what the applicant will bring to the Board of Directors. In late March, a final slate of candidates for the Board of Directors will be published on the MNSI website. On April 25, the Minnesota Swimming House of Delegates will elect new Board of Director members.


The available positions are (with two-year terms except as noted):

  • Administrative Vice Chair
  • Senior Vice Chair (1 year due to early departure)
  • Junior Coach Representative
  • Junior Athlete Representative
  • Athlete Committee Vice Chair (1 year)
  • Secretary
  • Nominating Committee Members
  • Age Group Vice Chair


Please contact MNSI Nominating Committee Chair Jack Swanson with questions at If you can, post this to your club websites and/or forward to individuals in your club that might be interested in MNSI Board service.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
