2017 board governance assessment & recommendations

This webpage has been created to provide USA Swimming members with complete information regarding the proposed changes to the role, purpose, function, and composition of the National Board of Directors. These changes will be voted on by the House of Delegates at the 2017 USAS Convention in Dallas.

Over the past year, a special task force and an outside consultant have conducted an in-depth governance review of the Board of Directors. In April, they presented their assessment and recommendations to the Board and received the Board’s overwhelming endorsement.

These recommendations have been reviewed by the Rules & Regulations Committee and will be presented to the House of Delegates as part of the legislation packet at the Convention.

The Board of Directors and the task force encourage you to carefully review the information provided and become familiar with the proposed changes and the rationale behind those changes.
