Board of Directors and Committees

The Board of the Santa Rosa Figure Skating Club is comprised of fifteen volunteers. They facilitate the various functions of the Club, such as competitions, shows, exhibitions, testing, and skating sessions. They also work to raise funds and monitor the Club's financial stability.

But these fifteen dedicated Board members can't do it alone. Operations of the SRFSC depend entirely upon volunteer assistance from Club members and parents (which is why we require ten volunteer hours from each member family annually). Events won't run smoothly without your help! Please volunteer in any way you can. 

The functions of the Board members and committees are described briefly below:

OFFICERS
From time to time, you may see competition applications that require the signature of a club officer. The officers, elected by a vote of Club members, serve in the following positions:

President: A position elected every even year for a two-year term. The president oversees the running of Board meetings and the ongoing activities of the various committees. He or she can appoint and dismiss Board members with reason, with the approval of the Board of Directors.

Vice President: A position elected every even year for a two-year term. The vice president performs the duties of the president when necessary. He or she acts as parliamentarian at Club functions and acquires sanctions for Club events as required.

Secretary: A position elected every odd year for a two-year term. The secretary records and maintains meeting minutes and policies and procedures. He or she is responsible for maintaining the Club calendar, documents, and correspondence and also keeps the bulletin board current.

Treasurer: A position elected every odd year for a two-year term. The treasurer is responsible for providing and maintaining complete financial accounts of the Club's belongings. He or she prepares checks as required and collects and deposits incoming funds. The treasurer provides regular financial reports to the Board of Directors as required. He or she assembles and monitors yearly budget and tax preparation.

Members at Large: There are four elected members at large: two are elected every even year, and two are elected every odd year. All serve a two-year term. There are no specific duties assigned to these Board members, but they frequently chair ad hoc committees as requested by the Board.

Frequently, special committees are chaired by a Board member, who works closely with a group of volunteer Club members and families to run the event.
