On September 13, 2013, an initiative will be placed on the USA Triathlon ballot to restructure the national board regions in an effort to better equalize member representation by general directors at national board level.
Currently, the largest general director board region is now more than 10,000 members greater than smallest region for a difference of 77%. Consequently, across regions members there is not the same representation at the national board level.
Thus, the initiative will reduce geographic disparity and hence conform to standard state jurisdictional lines. In other words, the initiative corrects areas where regional lines divided states (as in Florida and Texas)
At this time, no change to the USA Triathlon Regional Council structure is proposed.
The Regional Council Committee which is comprised of regional chairs supports this ballot initiative.
