The Chair also noted that there are new money incentives to get clubs to have an event that can be attended by all of the LMSC registered swimmers. These event incentives are based on the type of event you want to host and/or do host; i.e. regular meet, clinic, open water. Please contact Conner Bailey at SESanctions@usms.org.


8 ALL BOARD OFFICER POSITIONS UP FOR ELECTION
Helen Naylor announced that all board officer positions were up for election.
Helen asked if there were any nominations from the floor and then a motion by Allison Ware to open up the floor for discussion on the board positions and was second by Peter McCoy of club MATT.


Discussion: The members attending the meeting were asked if they were interested in any seat to step forward and also said that there are people holding 2 positions that will gladly give up one ; i.e. Sanctions, Secretary. A litany of questions concerning what the jobs entailed. No one stepped forward or volunteered for a position. It was left that if any LMSC member changes their mind about volunteering for the doubled duty positions that they could be filled at a later date.


A motion was made by Mark Bernasconi of club ESMS to accept all officers in seats they currently hold to new terms and was seconded by Peter McCoy of club MATT. It was approved by a unanimous vote.
