Over 30 Pacific Masters members will be traveling to Anaheim to participate in the USMS Convention 10-15 September. They will be volunteering their time to help with the running of United States Masters Swimming. USMS is different from most other NGBs as the volunteers contribute significantly to the running of the organization. The PacMasters office will have limited service as Nancy will be attending the convention.
You can see what will be discussed by going to the USMS Annual Convention Page. It has the reports and the proposed legislation that the delegates will consider.
Honoring those who have past on
Each year at the US Masters Swimming convention, the names of current and former Masters swimmers are read at a House of Delegates meeting. If you know of a member or past member who passed since last convention, please contact Nancy Ridout, registrar, with the information.
Pacific Masters honors its volunteers and members with its service awards. The 2013 service awards will be presented at this years November annual meeting.The four awards include The Contributor of the Year; The Appreciation Award, Distinguished Service award and the Personal Achievement award. The awards are normally chosen at the October meeting and the award that will be made at the annual meeting. Please feel free to send your nomination to any member of the executive committee, the chairman, the admin vice chair or the registrar.
The discussion of the Service Awards is in our Guide to Operations
