The New England LMSC is looking for a last-minute replacement delegate for the USAS/USMS convention next week at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. Arrive Wednesday 9/21 -- or Tuesday 9/20 if attending the open USMS BOD meeting on 9/21 -- with all-day delegate working sessions Thursday morning 9/22 through Saturday afternoon 9/24. Saturday night is the annual joint awards banquet where each governing body -- USA Swimming, USMS, US Water Polo, US Diving, US Sychronized Swimming -- reviews accomplishments and bestows achievement awards, including USA Swimmer of the Year (who will it be?). Depart Sunday or, if necessary, skip the banquet and leave Saturday after the last House of Delegates meeting, which is scheduled to end ~5pm. The NE-LMSC will reimburse the conference registration fee, hotel room (already reserved), airfare, $20/day food stipend, and transportation to/from the airport. If interested contact me immediately at NEchair@usms.org or (401) 633-5756. The other NE-LMSC delegates are Douglas Sayles, Crystie McGrail, Tim Lecrone, Alana Aubin, Bill Meier and Laszlo Eger.
