USA Swimming must make numerous bylaw, rule, policy, and operational changes over the course of the next few months to remain in compliance with the updated USOPC Bylaws and the updated Ted Stevens Olympic and Amateur Sports Act. The Governance Committee and their Working Groups will spend the next few months deliberating and determining the best path forward in regard to the reforms.
Many of these proposed changes will require approval by the House of Delegates. Therefore, in an effort to streamline and simplify the approval process by the House, USA Swimming is planning to host virtually a special meeting of the House of Delegates on June 30th, 2021 pursuant to Article 6.2 of the Corporate Bylaws. This special meeting of the House will be limited to compliance updates requiring HOD approval, and the annual House of Delegates meeting will still take place in September with a full agenda.
Additional information (and the requisite Board resolution) will follow; however, please save the date of June 30th, 2021.
