UWH Committee Nominations

Dear Underwater Hockey Members,

We are gathering nominations for candidates to serve on the Underwater Hockey Committee. There is currently one position vacant and three up for re-election.

Here is a brief description of the Committee details:

  • Committee Members are elected for a two year term.
    • Individuals can serve no more than two terms consecutively.
  • Committee members must be USOA members in good standing during their term.
  • Committee members must be able and willing to offer their time and energy to the Underwater Hockey community.
    • The Committee typically meets by conference call once per month on the 4th Tuesday.
    • Subcommittees of the Committee may meet more often as necessary.
    • Task loads typically take between 1 and 4 hours a week depending on each member's duties and responsibilities.

We will accept nominations until June 16, 2017. You may nominate yourself or someone else who you feel would be a good representative for USA UWH. At the annual meeting / symposium during nationals, we will present the nominated candidates and make a last call for nominations. Each nominee will be contacted to see if they are willing to serve.

The voting will be done electronically, starting shortly after Nationals and will be completed by July 16, 2017. This is in compliance with the Underwater Hockey Committee Rules.
