The DASH swim team is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are elected at the DASH Annual General Meeting held yearly in September. The head coach is a voting member of the board. The board of directors determines swim club policies, develops and approves the annual budget, determines financial policies for the club and provides direction and leadership for the club per the bylaws. DASH is constantly looking for new and exciting ways to improve the club. All parents are welcome to attend DASH board meetings. They are held monthly and information regarding the date, time and location can be found on the DASH website calendar.
