CONCERNS, COMMENTS, ISSUES: The board is happy to discuss any concerns you may have. However please remember that board members are parents too, and want to watch their children’s races at swim meets. You may contact board members via email at any time.

 

Board Member Responsibilities

General: attend board meetings approximately every 3 weeks (usually at the Clubhouse or a board member’s house). Answer occasional emails from board members and team parents.

Benefits: one paid registration (one swimmer). Your involvement as a board member also satisfies your volunteer requirements for the season, though your assistance may be requested throughout the season as needed.

Joe Miller – Joe has always been a kind, thoughtful, and effective team President. He has served as our team President for 6 years. And between him and his wife Anne they have been I. The board for 10 years. If not for their contributions the long term success of our team wouldn’t be what it is today.

Tracy Tran, Traci is a Treasurer extraordinaire. She has served as treasurer for Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, PTA, swim team, and probably countless others. I have personally had the pleasure of working with her on multiple boards and can say we are very lucky to have her. She is extremely capable, thoughtful, and always has the organization’s best interest in mind. Thanks Tracy! – Jerry

Sherry Andre, Sherry is so kind and always willing to lend a hand. She has kept the board informed and moving forward for so many years. She’s not just an involved swim parent but also active in school and has been a valuable member of our community. We can’t do it without Sherry. She isn’t just our team Secretary, she does so much more to keep the team moving along from 4th of July, to End of Year Party, to countless other events. We are all very lucky to have her as part of our team.

Volunteer Coordinator

Responsible for assigning jobs to swim parents, and managing their attendance/performance at swim meets.

Fundraising Coordinator

Melissa DaSilva, We couldn’t hope for a better Fundraiser chair. Don’t be fooled our dues don’t come close to paying for all the things needed in maintaining and running a successful swim team. We need to pay coaches, maintain equipment every year (lane lines, tents, tables, kick boards, flags, starting blocks, administrative, etc), pay for officials, awards, activities, and countless other details that you can’t imagine. Since Melissa has joined the board our fundraising has climbed each year. But don’t think that our job is done. She has moved us in the right direction but without your support we won’t be able to maintain the necessary funds to keep the team updated. Around the pool things wear down quickly. We need to have large reserves to replace things like dive blocks which have been slowly failing the last few years. Go Melissa we need you!

Champs/ISL Representative

Responsible for recruiting and coordinating volunteers for the championship meet. Present during the entire event, ensuring all posts are filled. Serve as Northstars representative during Champs meetings with Irvine Swim League.
