Swimming New Brunswick is looking for 4 Directors

The Board of Directors of Swim Natation NB is responsible for broad oversight of competitive swimming in the province, for coordinating the actions of clubs, coaches and officials, and specifically for supervising the work of our Executive Director. The Board comprises 6 Directors, who serve two-year terms. Directors are elected during the Annual General Meeting, with half of the Board being renewed each year.

This year, SNB needs to recruit 4 new members as the terms of three members expire and the recommendation to increase the Board to 6 members will be in effect. Swim Natation NB is therefore seeking 4 candidates. Executive positions on the Board (President, Secretary, Treasurer) are not determined at the AGM, but are elected by the Directors shortly afterwards. The AGM will be held on September 30th 2018 – candidates are welcome to attend but are not obliged to do so.

To ensure that the Board is composed of qualified and skilled persons capable of, and committed to, providing effective leadership to SNB, the Nominating Committee is looking for individuals that have one or more of the following:

  • A background, passion and knowledge of swimming as an athlete, coach, official, administrator or volunteer leader;
  • Knowledge of strategic planning and business planning
  • Human resources management expertise;
  • Legal and risk management expertise;
  • Business and corporate experience, including expertise in financial management; and/or demonstrated leadership skills in non-profit organizations.

The 2017-18 Board comprised:

David Anderson President Moncton Elected in 2017
Maryse Nadeau Fredericton Elected in 2016
Robert Fawcett Treasurer Sussex Elected in 2017, term expires in 2019
Stephen Wyatt Edmundston Elected in 2017, term expires in 2019
Shannon Douthwright Sec Bathurst Elected in 2016, resigned in 2017
