15 April 2019
Elections for members of the Swim England Management Board will take place at the Annual Council Meeting on 3rd July 2019. The nomination forms must be submitted by 31st May 2019 and can be accessed here.
There are ten positions for election this year, so there is plenty of opportunity for becoming part of the Board which is responsible for the development of the county for the benefit of its athletes. It would be fantastic if we could achieve a full membership on the Management Board, and also if our younger members would become involved. Any Swim England member of a Hertfordshire club, who is 18 years old or over is able to submit a nomination form.
Also for election this Annual Council Meeting are the posts of Chairman, Club Development Group Manager, Disability Manager, Synchronised Swimming Manager and Water Polo Manager. The nomination form attached covers these posts too, and nominations close on 31st May 2109 also.
Information on the Management Board can be found below.
Swim England Hertfordshire Management Board
Members of the Swim England Hertfordshire Management Board must be Swim England members of any club in the county, but no particular skill or knowledge is required, only a desire to contribute impartially to the decision-making in the county for the benefit of our athletes in all the aquatic disciplines.
There are only four meetings per year at the moment, plus the Annual Council Meeting. The requirement of members is attendance at those meetings, having read the paperwork circulated prior to the meeting. Items are discussed and decisions made, as well as monitoring the work of the discipline committees. The meetings are held on a weekday evening, at Welwyn at 8pm and last, at maximum, for two hours, as the room hire is until 10pm.
There is no requirement for additional time or input, only if an individual wishes to expand their commitment.
At this year’s Annual Council Meeting there are ten positions available for election to serve on the Management Board, and nominations would be very welcomed from younger Swim England members. Any Swim England member, aged 18yrs or over, can serve on the Management Board.
It would be excellent if the full membership of fifteen could be achieved this year. Can you offer to become a Management Board Member?
