The Ted Stevens Amateur act requires that ALL committees have at least 20% athlete representation. To this end, the Board of Directors voted to have all teams name an athlete representative to the athlete’s committee. These athletes will also be appointed to LSC committees. The method of selection is at the choice of the team (election, appointment, contents, etc..). The athlete must meet the requirements of an athlete representative in our By-Laws (below). The named athlete should be in addition to any athlete currently on the Board of Directors as an athlete or at-large rep or on the Board of Review.
Athlete Representatives must (a) be an Athlete Member in good standing; (b) be at least sixteen (16) years of age or at least a sophomore in high school; (c) be currently competing, or have competed during the three (3) immediately preceding years, in the program of swimming conducted by NCS or another LSC; and (d) reside in the Territory and expect to reside therein throughout at least the first half of the term.
Note: The term for appointments will be considered one year.
Please provide the name of the athlete rep by September 14, 2012 to Bill Martin at BillMartin@ncswim.org. Please include an email address and phone number so we may contact these athletes.
