We hold general membership meetings throughout the year. All members are encouraged to attend and participate in the discussions. In addition to discussing and voting on issues that affect the club, some meetings may also include a guest speaker.
During the season (May through September), the general meetings are usually held after one of the weekly brick or swim workouts. During the off-season our meetings are typically held at one of our sponsor's locations or at an area restaurant. We hold our annual club banquet in January, and that also serves as one of our general membership meetings.
Our Board of directors meet approximately once per month (at least 9 times per year). We do our best to schedule/publicize our board meetings with as much notice as possible (preferably 2 weeks), including an outline of tentative agenda items. Members are welcome to attend, but they must RSVP to the board at least 3 days before the meeting, so that we can make sure we have enough space to accommodate them. If they have an item that they would like added to the agenda they must submit it in advance as well (1 week minimum) and we will do our best to include it. Members can listen in, but due to time constraints there will likely be little opportunity, if any, for them to participate in the discussions (of course they would participate in the discussion of any agenda items that they submitted). Under some circumstances the board may need to enter into a "closed door session," with board members only, to discuss a topic and/or take a vote. Copies of board meeting minutes are available to any member upon request.
Please refer to the club calendar for meeting times and locations.
