President’s Letter: Committees

Dear PFSC Members:

Welcome to a new year of skating as a member of the Pasadena Figure Skating Club! As we transition to the 2015-2016 year, I’d like to encourage our members to get involved in the exciting year ahead.

As in every new year, we look forward to meeting new people who can continue to grow our Club and we sincerely thank all those who have contributed to our past successes. We have several committees that need volunteers. Our committees and chair positions include:

  • Membership*
  • Testing*
  • Competition*
  • Finance and Fundraising*
  • Technology*
  • Club Ice*
  • Junior Board Advisor*
  • Art and Design
  • Volunteer
  • Safe Sport Compliance
  • Education Seminars and Workshops
  • Programs and Awards
  • Adult Skater Representative
  • Coaches Representative*
  • Parents Representative
  • Pairs and Ice Dance Representative
  • Synchronized Skating Representative

*Committees with an asterisk indicate those that require a Chair that can attend PFSC Board Meetings on a frequent basis (e.g., at minimum 6 times per year) or can frequently communicate to the Board committee events and issues. Board Meetings occur once a month and are open to all members who wish to attend.

If you are interested in chairing or volunteering for any of the above committees, please email me by Friday, July 17th with the following information:  (1) your name, (2) email, (3) phone number, (4) what committees interest you, and (5) whether you are interested in a leadership role on that committee. We welcome any of our skaters, parents, coaches, and friends of PFSC who are current members to volunteer and you are more than welcome to serve on multiple committees. This is a great opportunity to develop leadership skills and serve our sport and our community!

More information will be coming in the months ahead as we prepare to host Pasadena Open, Skate SWP, and 2016 Southwest Pacific Regionals in September and October.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!

Happy Skating,
