Virginia LMSC Organization

Administration of the LMSC is performed by a Board of Directors (BOD) consisting of four elected officers (chair, vice-chair, secretary, treasurer), the Registrar, the chairs of a number of standing committees, representatives from LMSC teams with 10 or more members, and a delegate for smaller clubs. The BOD meets annually, usually around Oct/Nov. Between annual meetings, LMSC business is conducted by an Executive Committee consisting of the four elected officers, the Registrar, and five other Board members appointed by the LMSC chair.

Guide to Operations and the Rule Book

Formerly called the “LMSC Handbook,” the Guide to Operations contains a lot of useful information for LMSC Officers, meet officials, club coaches, and swimmers. It includes information about marketing your program, pool meet and open water sanctions, submissions for top ten, communications, and much more. The USMS Rule Book is another place to go with your questions about the rules of competition and the organization of USMS.
