January 2020 Update from the Board of Directors

Vice President, Melissa Larsen

Hello Swim Families! 


It has been a while since you have received an update from the Board of Directors. We have lots of information to share with you. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this lengthy update. 


Changes on the Board of Directors

There have been some changes to the Board of Directors that I would like to share with you. Kevin Olson has resigned from his position as President. He is stepping way due to other personal commitments and personal reasons. We would like to extend a "Thank you" to Kevin for his leadership to our Club. We look forward to seeing him volunteering poolside volunteering in some of his favorite positions as an announcer, timer, and/or Colorado operator. As Vice President, I will be assuming the duties of the President, while we look for a permanent replacement for this position.


MAC Program Advertising Opportunities

We are getting close to our Championship Season! Which is a very exciting time of the year. We are fortunate to once again be hosting the MAC Meet. This is a great opportunity for our swimmers to swim in the home pool and to bring revenue into our club. We are currently working on our program and selling ad space in the program. If you are interested in purchasing an ad or if you have a business to suggest, please contact Katie Graham, our MAC Program and Fundraising Coordinator. Volunteer options for this meet will be posted very soon. 


NSC Survey

The Board of Directors would like your help in planning for the future of the Club. Every few years, Club Members are asked to complete a Survey regarding our club, coaching, and your swimmers experience with our club. Your input is valuable and essential to the growth and success of our club! We will be looking at the feedback at our February and March Meetings and will share results at our April Banquet. Please complete this survey Sunday, February 9th. We appreciate your participation in this survey. Access the survey by clicking the following link. NSC Survey Winter 2020

The Board is always planning for the future. We would like to begin the training process for Registrar and Treasurer.

Junior Board

Our swimmers also have the opportunity to give feedback and ideas to our club through involvement on the Junior Board of Directors. We are currently looking for new representatives for the Winter/Spring Session. The time commitment is monthly. We currently meet prior to the Board of Directors meeting. If your swimmer is interested, there is a sign up sheet located on the newly revamped bulletin board on deck. They can also talk with Coach Chris or contact me as well. 


DJJD Needs

We are still looking for at least one more family to help with our Annual Defeat of Jesse James Days Pop and Water Sales. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, contact our Volunteer Coordinators. 


Personalized Cap Order

Information will be shared very soon regarding the opportunity to order personalized swim caps for your swimmer. We have an exciting new design created by our Junior Board Members to share with you!


Summer MAC Meet

The Board as also begun planning for the Summer and Fall Seasons. Please mark your calendars for July 11 - 12, as we have been awarded the opportunity to host the Summer MAC meet that weekend. We will need all volunteers on deck!
