Self nomination period open for USCA Athletes Advisory Committee
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Self-nomination period open for USCA Athletes Advisory
Committee – March 10, 2014
Any eligible athletes interested in self-nominating for
election to a two-year term on the USCA Athletes Advisory Committee (AAC) must
submit a statement by March 31, 2014 (first business day three
weeks after the conclusion of the most recent national championship).
Self-nomination statements should be sent to Dawn Leurquin at email@example.com. The
statement should include the following pieces of information:
- How the candidate qualifies for election to the
AAC (finish at Nationals, appearance at World Championships or Olympic Games)
- Expected level of commitment
- Position Statement
In order to be an eligible athlete you must have finished in the top
half of the field of the Men’s or Women’s National Curling Championship within
the preceding two (2) years, or have represented the United States and actively
competed in the Men’s or Women’s World Curling Championship or the Olympic
Winter Games within the preceding ten (10) years, as measured from the date of
the closing ceremonies of the qualifying event to the date of the election.
There are four (4) spots available, two men and two women, each with a
term of two (2) years. Only one spot for
each gender will be eligible to be a director on the USCA Board of Directors,
as determined by the required 20 percent representation rule. The term for the newly-elected AAC members
will begin at the conclusion of this year’s spring meeting due to the lateness
of the National Championship in this year.
At the conclusion of the self-nomination period, USCA staff will
distribute a ballot electronically to all eligible athletes (as described
above) and collect votes. Voting will be
open until April 11, 2014, and results will be announced on the USCA website
once the elected athletes are notified.
If you have any questions about self-nominating, please contact Maureen
Clark, AAC chairwoman, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions about a submission or
eligibility, please contact Dawn Leurquin at email@example.com.
