Help us shape the future of volunteering in swimming!

26th April 2013

The ASA Volunteer Engagement Team is creating a National Volunteer Forum – a group of motivated and dynamic individuals aged 25 and over who will act as a consultation service to the ASA regarding all things volunteering.  And we are recruiting now!

The Volunteer Forum will be a group of proactive volunteers from across the country who come together to feed into the ASA Volunteer Engagement Team. The forum will allow more relevant and rewarding programmes, resources and opportunities to be devised for volunteers, creating a greater feeling of ownership and helping retain our volunteers in the sport.

Being involved in the forum will allow you to act as a representative for your local area, raising issues that are important to you so that they can be addressed, and solutions incorporated into the national volunteering work plan of the ASA. We aim to create a network of volunteers across all the aquatic disciplines, recruiting more volunteers into the sport and ensuring the ones we have are rewarded and retained. The Volunteer Forum will be supported at every step by the Volunteer Engagement Team, and all travel costs will be covered by the ASA.

The ASA are looking to recruit 12 members to create the forum – Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and 9 Members. Click the links below to take you through to the individual role descriptions and the application form:

If you’re confident, passionate and have a desire to make a difference to the aquatic volunteering world, then this could be the ideal opportunity for you!

If you have any questions or would like to find out more information contact volunteering@swimming.org, or call us on 01509 640762.

Closing date for applications is 5pm on Tuesday 30th April, all shortlisted candidates must be available to discuss their application in mid May.
