PASC is a voluntary group. The most important document that PASC has is its constitution. This governing document details how the club must manage its affairs. According to the constitution PASC must be managed by a committee elected at the AGM. The committee must have a minimum of 8 committee members elected at the Annual General Meeting each year. Each committee must have a chairperson, secretary and treasurer as executive members and a minimum of 5 other additional adult members.
There must be a minimum of 6 members to establish a quorum for voting and decision making at committee meetings. Once elected to committee, PASC must ensure all members have Access NI clearance, child protection training and registration with Swim Ireland. Other key roles that must be filled within the club include:
PASC are committed to protecting the welfare of children and young people. We operate to a set of guidelines set out by Swim Ireland/Swim Ulster most recently in October 2015. Any child protection concerns should be directed to the Clubs Children’s Officers (CCO) whose names are listed on the club noticeboard in Cascades. There are two CCOs, one of whom sits on the committee.
Any concerns should be raised with the Club Children’s Officers (CCO).
