USMS determines the delegate entitlements for each LMSC based on the number of registered swimmers in 2015, and the Board expects to make their selections in late May based on USMS’s distribution of these numbers. AZ LMSC has budgeted to cover up to $1100 in expenses for each chosen delegate. The AZ LMSC Board’s expectation is that each delegate will provide a report to the Board following attendance at convention. Anyone who is a USMS registered swimming in AZ LMSC is eligible to apply. Never attended the National Convention? Not to worry – AZ LMSC has many Convention “veterans” who will provide training/support for any selected first-time attendees.
