2018 Nominating Committee

Elections for the 2018- 2019 board are coming up and to find eligible candidates the club forms a nominating committee each year.  This year Victoria Bowen has volunteered to be the chair.  If you would like to help Victoria with this important committee or are interested in joining the board, please email her regarding your interest.

St. Moritz is always looking for diversity on the Board, so please consider running to lend your voice to the discussions and decisions that shape the Club’s business.

Governing Council

Governing council is the annual meeting of all the clubs that make up US Figure skating.  It is held once a year and the clubs ratify the decisions of US Figure Skating committees and Board as well as receiving reports from various groups.  It is interesting to see how the organization works.

Based on our membership size, SMISC is allowed 7 delegates to governing council, who will be voting on various issues.  Board members normally attend, but any club member in good standing is welcome to apply.

The dates are May 3-5, and will be in Orlando, Florida.  The delegates bear the cost of attending (airfare, hotel and food), but some reimbursement of funds is generally available to help offset the costs.  You may also attend as an observer, but we would not reimburse for that.  The delegates will be expected to blog their experiences daily to share with the club on the daily activities.  This experience will be more work than leisure time.

There are some workshops and sectional club meetings but most of the time will be spent in the general session, listening to reports, and voting on various actions that come up.  It is serious work, but satisfying if you care about ice skating and have an interest in the sport on a national level.

If you wish to attend, the Board will be happy to consider your request.

We will ask

  • Why do you want to attend governing council?
  • Have you attended before as a delegate or observer?
  • What would you hope to gain from attending?
  • What can you bring back to the club from attending?

If this sounds like something you are interested in, please contact one of the board members.  Our emails are on the SMISC website.

For the Board,

Dirk Vanderlaan

2017-2018 President

Update/Clarification on New Test Requirements

We have had several requests for where or how to find the test requirements that go into effect on Nov. 1st. This information is found in the rulebook beginning with Rule 4200. However, to make it easier for everyone, our test chair has copied out the information from the rulebook and it is available below so our skaters and coaches may download it or print it out more easily.  Most programs that skaters are currently doing will still work for the new requirements but there have been some changes and you will want to check the requirements to be sure you are in compliance. (For instance, the Pre-Preliminary FS test currently requires one spin, but it will require the skaters to do 2 spins beginning Nov. 1st).
