After much thought and discussion, we are postponing the annual meeting, originally scheduled for tomorrow, July 28th, and communicated to you well over 14 days ago. While our BAM attorney has advised we are authorized to proceed, we feel it is in the best interest for the club to ensure we have clarity in the process used to elect the board.
Some members have contested both the bylaws themselves and the interpretation of the voting process, despite its use for the many years of annual meetings/board elections as documented in meeting minutes.
Once we have completely answered the outstanding questions, a new date will be communicated to the membership. We will give a minimum of 14 days' notice and provide the confirmed process in that communication. Meanwhile, we will continue our duties and operations. Thank you in advance for your understanding, and apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
The BAM Board Rhys, Sonja, Daan, Meghan, Jenny, Cynthia, and Cilla
We are delighted to announce Bill Garrels will be taking on interim Head Coaching responsibilities with support from Carole Sharpless in a Coach Manager position where she will be helping organize coaches for their assigned workouts.
We heard your feedback and we are not rushing to hire the new head coach for our program. To provide continuity to our membership and swimming community, we are progressing with two of our very own during this transition period. We believe this will keep BAM moving forward in a positive and stable direction for everyone. Read more.
