A slight change was made to the by-laws and the summary due to the fact that SI Swimming does not have a coach committee, but a separate entity known as the Coach Association.  The documents linked for the by-laws and summary have been updated.

*** UPDATED ***

We will be voting to approve these proposed versions of the by-laws and the policy&procedure documents at the House of Delegates meeting at the end of November.  Below are the links to each of the documents as well as a document that summarizes the changes.  If you have any questions or concerns with the changes, please send email to gen-chair@si-swimming.org
