2016 Board Elections
An Opportunity to Get Involved!
The 2017 Swan Creek Board Elections will take place during November, prior to our annual meeting in December. As we are a volunteer managed organization, we would like to see everyone involved in the management of our club at some time. Being a Board Member doesn’t necessarily take a lot of time, but it is essential that everyone participate – maybe your turn is this year.
The Board works best when there is representation from all of our rower categories – we need novices, as well as experienced rowers, scullers as well as sweepers, recreational, as well as competitive men, women and youth.
General Board Member – Masters
There are four general board positions to be filled by Masters. Board Members attend the meetings and vote to make the decisions that decide how the club functions. Each member usually takes on a project during the year and these make a great contribution to the club. (The projects can vary from setting up the cox box charging station to managing some of the site maintenance work or the Learn to Row Program.)
General Board Member – Youth
There is one general board position to be filled by a Youth Rower. Our Youth Board Member will be an important liaison and representative of the Youth Program. This individual will work with the board Secretary to communicate directly with the members of the Youth Program as well as represent the Youth Members at our monthly board meetings.
The secretary takes minutes of the Board Meetings, manages the Membership Renewal process, as well as the Board Elections. This position is also responsible for club correspondence throughout the year via Constant Contact. The holder of this position receives their annual membership fee free.
The Treasurer pays the bills, banks the membership dues, writes checks during the year for boat maintenance, etc. and controls the club bank accounts and budget. The holder of this position receives their annual membership fee free.
The Vice-President is Boat Captain and manages our fleet and the boat site. The holder of this position receives their annual membership fee free.
The President keeps the boat, hopefully, going straight and communicates for the club, both internally and externally. The holder of this position receives their annual membership fee free.
Our elections will be conducted shortly via Constant Contact. We hope you will reflect for a few minutes and think about what contribution you can make to Swan Creek Rowing Club in 2017.
Please reply to this email by November 1 with your interest or if you have any questions.
