Special HOD Meeting

DATE
SEPTEMBER 25, 2021
TIME
10 AM, MDT

Description

Over the past few months, USA Swimming has been focused on making numerous bylaw, rule, policy, and operational changes to remain in compliance with the updated USOPC Bylaws and the updated Ted Stevens Olympic and Amateur Sports Act.  While the majority of compliance updates requiring HOD approval were approved during the June 30 Special Meeting, there are still elements of the Rules and Bylaws that require updating.

 

Therefore, USA Swimming is planning to host a second virtual special meeting of the House of Delegates on September 25, 2021, pursuant to Article 6.2 of the Bylaws.  This special meeting of the House will be limited to the remaining compliance updates requiring HOD approval.  The annual House of Delegates meeting will commence following the special meeting on September 25 with a full agenda.  A written notice will be sent to each member of the House of Delegates at least fifteen days before the special meeting.  Membership of the House of Delegates will be based on membership as of the date of the written notice, pursuant to Article 6.2.3.  Any subsequent changes to membership prior to the September 25, 2021 meeting should be sent to Denise Thomas (denise.thomas@usaswimming.org) by September 20, 2021.

 
Additional information (and the requisite Board resolution) will follow; however, please save the date of September 25, 2021.

VIEW PROPOSED RULE CHANGES

June 30, 2021 Meeting

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.
