Council will have the opportunity to review the Board’s decision at the 2016 Council Meeting.


ASA Vice Presidency
The Region has the responsibility to nominate the ASA Vice President for 2016/17. The Board sought nominations from the counties, clubs and members and, following the precedence established in 2008, held a ballot of Board members in June 2016. Richard Whitehead was elected.


Swim 21 Workshop
