As we get back to our Fall routines, remember to pencil in our planned meets once the schedule is approved. The first meets are planned for early November in Baraboo, and early December in West Bend. Meet attendance has been down the last few years, even pre-pandemic, and your board of directors is interested in learning why swimmers are not attending meets. I will be sending out a survey under separate cover. Please be honest in your responses.
The Annual meeting will be held Saturday, October 8, from 9:00 am – noon. If you wish to attend in person, the address is 13510 Braemar Dr, Elm Gove, WI. If you wish to participate virtually via Zoom, the link is https://jnjmeetings.zoom.com/
j/98377518907?pwd= bmQ2RGxvenpMeUdGY05pelNEcEQwQT 09. Information is posted on the Home page and here. Elections for officers and appointment of committee chairs will be held. The budget will also be discussed and passed. The budget includes several initiatives to spend down reserves, as suggested by USMS. Even if you are not able to attend the annual meeting, you may offer comments by emailing me at WIChair@usms.org.
The USMS convention will be held September 16-18. Although there is an option to attend either in person or virtually, Wisconsin has decided to attend virtually to save funds to be spent on initiatives in our state. If you are interested in listening to any of the sessions, or if you would like to read the minutes of committee meetings, here’s the link, https://www.usms.org/

If you have any ideas or comments to share with your Wisconsin Masters Swim Committee board, please send an email to WIChair@usms.org.
