AGM 2019

Updated selection criteria and list of nominees:

Following a discussion with the members of the Technical Committee and in order to have the highest number of swimmers participating, we have decided to rectify criterium #2 by including all swimmers, who are in the TOP3 in each event. In this regard, please find the updated criteria  as well as the updated list of nominees. The more detailed list can be found in Google Drive: SNB/NNB (public) / 2. Events – Calendar & Documents (public) / AGM Documents. In case you have any suggestions regarding these criteria, please contact us before 16th October 2019 so that we can discuss them in the course of the AGM.


As we have already communicated, SNB has reserved one room per club in Sussex from 25th to 27th October 2019. Moreover, SNB has also blocked some rooms with special rates for swimmers and their families, available up to 25th September 2019. Please inform your participating members that they are welcome to contact the hotels directly before the date given to confirm their reservations:

Timberland Motel (506) 433-2480
All Seasons Inn (506) 433-2220
Fairway Inn (506) 433-3470


We have planned several different activities for swimmers, parents, board members, officials and others. Please use the poll via link below to indicate the activities that you would like to attend. This will help us to arrange sessions so that as many people as possible can participate.


The updated version of the program is available in Google Drive.

Presentation: Good Governance

In order to prepare for a presentation on practical governance during the AGM weekend, a survey was developed by a Governance consultant (Rick Adams), in partnership with Swim NB. Rick hopes to learn about the different Swim NB club structures in order to tailor the content of the presentation to Swim NB. The survey should only take 5 – 10 minutes. If there are some questions that are not easily answered it is okay to skip questions (simply answer ABCDEFG) and move on to the next question. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION. Here is the link for the survey in English:


Technical Committee/Call for nominations

In order to update the contact details of our members, we kindly ask you to provide us with at least two official e-mail addresses of your club preferably the ones of the President and the Head Coach) or any other person of the club, who you wish to receive our newsletter and other official communications.
