Seeking nominations for Board positions

We are currently looking to fill two rotational vacancies within the Swimming Otago Board.


An elected board member, Richard Hutchens, is stepping down by rotation at this year's Annual General Meeting. Richard was elected in 2015 and has been an integral part of the team, and will be sorely missed around the board room table. However, we are pleased to advise that Nigel Ellett will be seeking re-election at this year's Annual General Meeting.


We seek nominations to fill two Board positions. The term for both positions will be three years and are voluntary roles.

Nominations must be submitted to the Support Officer at by no later than midnight Saturday 28 August 2021.
Please ensure all details, as per section 8.6 of the Swimming Otago Constitution, are provided. 

8.6  Each Member Club:

  1. may nominate in writing one candidate for election to the Board for each vacant position on the Board; and
  2. must provide to the Board the written consent of any candidate to their nomination; and
