Dear USA Diving Members,
On behalf of USA Diving, we want to personally invite you to attend the 2013 United States Aquatic Sports Convention. It is a new day at USA Diving. Last year we shared our thoughts and goals for the next quadrennium. With the support of our Board and staff this year, we have been able to put together a vision and a strategy map to help that vision come to life. All that is missing is your input, to help us shape the future of the sport. We need our members’ recommendations to help us move forward.
The 2013 USAS Convention will be held in Garden Grove, Calif. and will feature a new structure. The diving business will be conducted September 12-13 at the Hyatt Regency – Orange County. The education portion will be held offsite at the Pacific Diving Academy in Santa Fe Springs on September 14-15. This session will focus on dryland skills and will be highlighted by an opportunity to complete the practical portion of the aerial training certification. We feel that this new structure will better serve our members.
Major items that will be discussed at Convention will include Rulebook changes and committee, LDA and membership structures. This year is a rule and code change year. If you have any code or rule proposals to submit for consideration, remember the deadline to submit proposals is August 15, 2013, at midnight PDT. All submissions need to be received or post-marked by this date and time. Please submit all proposals to the USA Diving National Office. These can be faxed, email, or sent via post office to Pam Majors, firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is an exciting time for USA Diving. USAD has introduced a new look and feel which includes a new logo and magazine redesign. A newly-designed website will debut in the near future. Membership numbers are also steadily increasing and are higher than they have been in recent years. It has never been a better time to be a member of USA Diving! We are excited about the changes we are making to this annual event and hope you are able to join us at the 2013 USAS Convention in Garden Grove.
Make your reservations now to secure a spot at this year’s host hotel, the Hyatt Regency – Orange County. The hotel reservation cut-off date is August 16, 2013, so don’t wait! Only registered attendees are eligible for the special convention hotel room rate.
