1. Committee Membership – The Committee is comprised of adult club members who have been nominated and elected to serve the membership. All adult members are eligible for the Committee and nomination forms are available prior to the AGM. The parents of each family should consider serving as a Committee member some time during their club membership. Committee meetings are held once a month, currently the second Tuesday of every month. It is essential for as many families as possible to contribute to the decisions of the club so, if you have any issues you wish to put to the Committee please email the Club Secretary at email@example.com. This will ensure that the club caters for the needs of all swimmers.

There are many jobs you could do; timekeeper, marshal, starter, judge of turns/strokes, etc. Swimming NT regularly sends emails requesting parents to help out. Training is provided.
