The United States Masters Swimming annual convention was held from September 24-28 in Burlingame, California as part of the overall United States Aquatic Sports Convention.

This was an election year for USMS. After hearing the nomination speeches for each candidate for a position on the Executive Committee, the House of Delegates cast their votes. The new members elected to the USMS Executive Committee are:

President - Nancy Ridout, Pacific LMSC
Vice President - Jack Geoghegan, Connecticut LMSC
Secretary - Betsy Durrant, Virginia LMSC
Treasurer - Jeanne Ensign, Pacific Northwest LMSC
Zone Chairman - Hugh Moore, Pacific Northwest LMSC

Each committee conducted their meeting(s) through the weekend and presented their committee reports to the House of Delegates for approval. The committee reports that have been submitted thus far for web publication are highlighted below. More will be added as they are received.

Also available are copies of the morning workouts conducted for the delegates conducted by members of the coaches committee, minutes of the Zone Meetings, and the rule and legislation changes that were proposed to the House of Delegates.
