Annual Meeting November 17th, 2012

Murphy, Mike - Saturday, November 17, 2012

Hi BWAQ swimmers,

It's that time of the year again as we approach and prepare for a few special days that never get missed on anyone's calendar - in no special order: Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the Blue Wave Aquatics Annual Meeting. Okay, we might miss Thanksgiving. On November 17th, 9:00 am, at Federal Way Community Center, BWAQ will hold it's annual membership meeting. Come practice with us at 7:00 and meet afterwards in the FWCC classroom.

We'll talk about the state of Blue Wave Aquatics: what we did this year and what we're planning on doing in the near future. We'll also be electing our board members for 2013. If you're a BWAQ member (if you're reading this email you are a member) then you should plan on being at this meeting. The policies that most directly affect you and your masters swimming community will be determined by the people you elect. Please mark your calendar and plan on being at the meeting. Last year about 30 members attended the meeting. We'd like to see double or triple that number come. After all, we have 175 active members, and this is your club!

Before I talk about the board positions and members I have some news that affects members that swim at the Kent pool. We're closing the Kent pool program at the end of the year. That program has been struggling to keep the numbers up and after a couple years of trying, we've decided to shut it down. If you're a Kent swimmer, please consider swimming at one of our other venues. If the other pools are too far away, please call me and I can let you know about other adult swimming opportunities around the Kent area.

All board member positions are up for election. The current board members are...

  • President: Mike Murphy
  • Vice President: Kim Boggs
  • Treasurer: Judy Williams
  • Secretary: Jenell Outerson
  • Membership Chair: Angela Turley
  • KCAC Member at Large: Jessie Hickel
  • Evergreen Member at Large: Mary Foster (stepping down)
  • Kent Member at Large: Eric Durban (position closing)
  • Fife Member at Large: Brenda Wright
  • Sumner Member at Large: position open

If you're interested in running for any position (new faces on the board keep our club vital) - please contact one of the members on the nominating committee:

  • Paul Havick, nominating committee chair
  • Wilson DeFiesta

The deadline for nominations is Saturday, Nov 3rd. However, nominations will be taken from the floor on Nov 17th. The club needs representation from Sumner and Evergreen pools. If you swim at these pools, please consider contributing your time (about 1 hour/month) and nominate yourself for the Blue Wave Aquatics Board.

Please mark your calendar for BWAQ Annual Meeting - Saturday, Nov 17th. 9 a.m. at Federal Way Community Center.

Mike Murphy

Blue Wave Aquatics President
