The Interim Club Committee would like to encourage all club members to put themselves forward for committee posts that are available. The aim is to appoint the best people for the job and we are aware that there is a wealth of skills amongst the members which would really help the club to develop further.

Please read the Club Constitution which has further details on the voluntary vacancies and nomination process.

At the AGM a vote will be held to appoint each position, from the nominated people. All club swimmers over the age of 16 years old are entitled to vote, and one parent of every child under the age of 16 years may vote at the AGM. It is important that voting takes place from representatives from every age group in the club so if your swimmers do not usually attend NISV on a Tuesday evening, please try to attend the AGM.

Please also note that the interim committee, were just that. Each post is open and the best person for the job will be elected.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Club's AGM
