Club Membership Lists
As outlined in the USOF Bylaws, the number of votes your club’s delegates may cast is based on the number of USOF members in good standing, designating your club as their primary club, as of August 31, 2023.
All clubs are afforded 1 delegate and 1 alternate. For clubs with more than 25 members, they can choose to have 1 additional delegate for every 25 members.
You can find a list of your club members in good standing at: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Wjk3cpDwckILc6vYaJgJ6Wdylo0yQOHK
Please notify the USOF Office of the names of your delegates and alternates. The delegate appointments should be emailed from a club officer to firstname.lastname@example.org
Delegates and alternates representing your club must be OUSA members, designating your club as their primary club, as of August 31, 2023.
Your club may assign its votes by proxy to another club. The proxy will only be valid if no OUSA-primary member of your club will be present at the AGM. Proxies may not be assigned to a particular member of another club. Email proxy assignments to: email@example.com
Check your personal memberships
The upcoming AGM presents a good time for all OUSA members to be sure that their information is current in our database. We recommend that you login to our portal and check your profile to be sure that it is accurate. There are known issues in our system that we are still working on. Checking for accuracy is especially recommended if you have family memberships or if you use the auto-renew feature.
Note on Presidential Succession from Clare Durand
I’ve served on the Orienteering USA board for a long time. I am currently in the fifth year of my second stint as President, having previously served as President for four years from 2007-2011. My current three-year board term expires this year and I have agreed to run for another term with a commitment to continue serving as President for up to two more years. Then I plan to step down from the Presidency and use my last year on the board to overlap with the new President.
We have no clear succession plan. If you have an interest in serving or know someone who might please contact me or Jon Torrance, nominating committee chair. The future of Orienteering USA depends on volunteers willing to lead the organization, and the transition to a new President will be much smoother if that person joins the board sooner and understands our administrative systems before taking over. I hope that a suitable candidate comes forward this year or next to keep Orienteering USA moving forward.
