Hello NORAC Families,

Our AGM will take place on Tuesday June 11th, 2024  at 5:30pm at JBSC Community Room.  This is our Club and we would like to see as many attendees as possible to hear what the Club has accomplished this swim season and to look forward to the 2024-2025 season. Board elections also take place at the AGM. As per procedure, last year’s AGM Meeting Minutes and Financial Documents are attached for review prior to the AGM.

We are looking for members of NORAC who are interested in becoming a board member. The following board positions are not yet filled for next season.  We ask that anyone interested in putting their name forward, first consider the positions that currently have no nominees for next season: 

  • Vice President
  • Director of Social Events
  • Director at Large

Being on the board gives you the opportunity to maintain what you like about NORAC as well as participate in setting the future direction of the Club. The focus of each board member must be the wellbeing and future of the Club as a whole. It is critical that we have people willing to fill Board roles to remain a going concern, and we appreciate your support.

Parents/guardians from all competitive swim groups are welcome to put their name forward. You do NOT need to be knowledgeable about swimming to be an excellent Board Member, just be willing and able to dedicate the time.

The Board of Directors consists of the following positions:

  • President – responsible for the overall supervision and administration of the affairs of the Club. The President must have sat on the board the year prior. 
  • Vice President – assumes the duties of the President if the President is absent or unable to exercise his/her/their duties.
  • Secretary – records the minutes of meetings and distributes correspondence.
  • Treasurer – responsible for the financial accounting and budgeting for NORAC (accounting or bookkeeping experience preferred) 
  • Director of Fundraising – organizes corporate and individual fundraising, including Swim-A-Thon, Fundscrip etc.
  • Director of Officials – supports the development of Club officials, organizes officials for home meets.
  • Director of Social Events –organizes the Club’s social events.
  • Director of Bingo – organizes and trains volunteers for bingos sponsored by NORAC.
  • Disputes Resolution Officer (previously called Director of Conflict Resolution) – addresses complaints and issues made to the Conflict Resolution Committee.
  • Director at Large (2) – assists in special projects as they arise (equipment, clothing, travel, special events, etc).

Anyone can put their name forward for any of the above positions. If more than one nomination is received for a position an election by secret ballot will be held at the AGM.  Many current board members have put their name forward to continue on the board.
