RMD Proposes New By-Laws

Letter from RMD Board President Roger Perricone

To: the membership of the Rocky Mountain Division of the United States Ski and Snowboard Association (RMD)
From: Roger Perricone President of RMD and the Board of Directors
June 26, 2013


From time to time it is necessary to review and adjust the governance of any organization. The Rocky Mountain Division (RMD) Board of Directors (BOD) recognized this need about three years ago and has been working diligently since then to revise the division’s bylaws.

RMD, as the governing entity of this geographic area of USSA, encompasses an area of the United States that stretches form Casper, Wyoming, through Colorado, to the southernmost skiing in Arizona and New Mexico. The Division holds the charge of compliance to the rules and procedures of the membership and sanctioned events that reside or occur within this area. The RMD represents Alpine skiing, Jumping/Nordic Combined skiing, and Freestyle skiing through Competition Committees in each of these disciplines. Officiating of the events contested in each of these disciplines is represented to the BOD through the competition committees and/or directly to the BOD of the Division.

It is because of the broad diversity of the Rocky Mountain Division, which is unique in the USSA, that the governance of the division be updated and adjusted, as changes in operation happen at a faster pace than ever before. The Divisions current governing documents require that notification of changes to the governing documents be presented to the membership at least forty five days prior to a vote by the membership of RMD for approval. The Rocky Mountain Division Board of Directors is offering these revised bylaws to the membership at this time for your consideration.

Please review these documents as they will be considered for adoption by the membership of RMD on October 13, 2013 in Summit County at the RMD annual membership meeting. This meeting is open to all members of the RMD.

Thank you,
From all of the Directors serving the RMD

McKinsey & Company Report

McKinsey & Company Report

Since the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, the USSA has made development a key focus area. Our goal is to ensure that our programs strengthen and grow to enable athletes to achieve their Olympic dreams. To accomplish this, the USSA enlisted the pro bono assistance of the globally-recognized consulting firm McKinsey & Company to work with a Steering Committee of USSA sport leaders to help evaluate the way support is delivered to athletes and parents through our USSA clubs and development programs nationwide. McKinsey and the study’s Steering Committee were asked to consider several issues and offer recommendations for how we can make USSA better.


After conducting over 100 interviews across the organization with coaches, club and regional leaders, athletes and parents, as well as experts at other successful sports and non-profit organizations, significant support for evolving the USSA towards becoming a more club-based organization was found. This transition will be focused on three major areas: strengthening club support and services, improving communications and enhancing member support and services.

Implementation of the Steering Committee’s recommendations is already underway, with staffing and resources committed to expanded programming and activity.


To view a report on McKinsey & Company’s findings, as well as how the USSA plans to execute these plans, please go to  http://ussa.org/ussa/mckinsey-study
