|ATTACHMENT C -- PROPOSAL to transition
responsibility for the Paralympic program to the OSC from SWSN
It is proposed that the responsibility for the Paralympic Sailing Program in the US and for developing the US Disabled Sailing Team and the selection of the US Paralympic Sailing Team be transitioned from the Sailors With Special Needs Committee (SWSN) to the Olympic Sailing Committee (OSC), along with its current budget, excluding G&A (unless some portion of it is contracted from the Executive Director by the OSC).
The OSC will adhere to the following principles throughout this transition and continuing into the future:
To this end, the OSC will invite a disabled athlete or team member to be a member of the OSC Executive Committee, and the OSC Chairman will name event liaisons to the OSC for each of he Paralympic events (currently: 3-person and single-handed).
The budget, both income and expense, in support of the US Disabled Sailing Program will be appropriately segregated, recognizing that some amount of the income will need to support the committee's G&A, the overarching goal of this transition is to take advantage of the synergies provided from the current level of G&A that is invested in the OSC. As such, the Budget associated with the Paralympic Movement will become a part of the OSC multiyear planning and spending plan, and as such will move off of the Income Statement, as the OSC budget currently does.
As with the Olympic Selection Trials, the OSC will now become the designated committee within US SAILING responsible for the arranging of the Paralympic Selection Trials. We will reach out to those most familiar with the needs of the disabled sailors in accomplishing this task, and will see how we can best synergize with the Olympic Selection Trials. The OSC will follow the same approach in naming the Team Leader and any other appointed/hired member of the US Paralympic Sailing Team.
Any funds raised that are designated, either for the US SAILING Team or for the US SAILING Disabled Team, will be segregated as discussed above. It should be noted that any funds from the USOC not otherwise designated for the Disabled Sailing Team/Program, are always presumed to be designated, by default, for the US SAILING Team/Program.
