Board of Directors

A key piece in accomplishing Elk Grove Aquatics Club’s mission is our board directors. The board is made up of 10 swim team member parents, and the Head Coach. The Board of Directors meets together on a monthly basis to discuss issues related to our organization as a whole. The 10 volunteer swim parents/guardians manage EGAC’s business operations and fiscal responsibilities. Election of Board Members is held each year at the beginning of the summer swim season in April or May. Elected Board Members serve a two-year term, and 6 month transitional while they train their replacements. Board member positions are President, Vice President, Treasurer, Billing Specialist(non-voting member),  Secretary, Registrar, LSC Representative, Parliamentarian, Parent Liaison, Volunteer Coordinator, Fundraising Coordinator, and the Head Coach would also serves as a voting member of this board. Board meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month. Anyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.

Responsibilities and goals help foster an environment of team cohesiveness. By providing regular social, team-building opportunities, the Board hopes to nurture the team and to instill a sense of team pride in support of the team vision and leadership of the Head Coach.  Parents/guardians and swimmers will be more motivated to be a part of EGAC, when they feel valued and enjoy themselves.

The EGAC Board will maintain vital relationships with the City of Elk Grove, Cosumnes River College, and the Elk Grove Unified School District. By building relationships within the community and seeking business sponsorships to establish a strong financial base for future growth. EGAC will also submit grant applications under its 501(c)(3) non-profit status.

The EGAC Board plans to make our team more visible to the community through the use of various avenues: Media – Articles that highlight the accomplishments of our swimmers at swim meets will be submitted monthly to the Elk Grove Citizen and the Sacramento Bee, and other local news media. Community Events – Participation in local Elk Grove events, such Food Drives, Elk Grove Cancer Walk, will make our team more recognizable to help foster our Philosophy “Character Builds Community” through Outreach Communication and volunteering.
