Board members (except the Treasurer, who is selected by the other six board members) are elected to a two-year term by the current members during our Annual Membership Meeting in late August each year. We are committed to ensuring that Tamarack Swim Club is a fun, safe and exciting place to be. We welcome your feedback and suggestions!
If you are interested in nominating yourself for consideration on the board, please contact a current member of the board to express your interest and desire.
If you need to reach a board member email email@example.com or individually at their e-mail addresses below.
Ian Ashcraft, President
Description: Hey there! 2023 marks my second season as a TSC board member. I serve the Board as President where I primarily focus on the pool’s technology solutions, including the implementation of our NEW website, NEW pro-audio system, and NEW membership systems. When I’m not at the pool with my amazing partner in crime (Wife) and/or our 4 kids (5 including our pooch), you can likely find me at home woodworking or out enjoying our kids’ sporting events. I feel lucky to have our amazing team of volunteer board members this season! For any technology related questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.
Mikala Ashcraft, Secretary
Description: Hi! My name is Mikala Ashcraft. This is my first official year on the board at Tamarack Swim Club, and I will be functioning as board secretary. I will be managing memberships and working closely with Ian to implement the new system. I will also be the contact person for pool rentals and staffing oversight. I’m the wife that Ian was talking about, so I spend most of my summer at the pool with him, our 4 kids and our pup, Sefi! For any questions regarding memberships, pool rentals or front desk staffing, send me an e-mail.
Dave Auer, HR and Accountant
Description: Hi, my name is Dave Auer. While this is my first year serving on the Board as staff manager/HR and Jr. Accountant, 2023 will be my 18th year as a member of Tamarack Swim Club. My 3 kids grew up with this pool being a huge part of their summer, and now my 5 year old grandson has continued the tradition. I look forward to serving our members and making TSC a place where families can make memories for years to come.
Sean Messinger, Maintenance and Pump House
Description: Hi! My name is Sean Messinger. I live in the Tamarack neighborhood since 2015 and enjoy spending time at the pool with my wife and two kids. This is my 4th year on the board, and I focus on facilities management. This is a big job since our pool is 50 years old. During the season I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions regarding our facilities!
Matt Clark, Grounds
Description: Hey Tamarack! My name is Matt Clark and 2023 marks my second season as a TSC board member. I serve the Board as the Vice President where I primarily focus on the grounds and safety training for our Lifeguards. When I’m not at the pool with my 3 boys, you can likely find me coaching or just enjoying one of their sporting events. We hired a lawn company to mow our grass last year which was a large expense but took the burden of mowing off the board members. We hope to continue this next year as well as improve by finding a solution for our front garden. If any members are interested in maintaining our garden all year or for any other grounds related questions, I can be contacted at email@example.com!
Description: Hi! My name is Rebecca Merritt, and this will be my second year on the board. You can frequently find me at the pool with my husband and two boys. Feel free to reach out!
Terry Townsend, Treasurer
Description: Hi! My name is Terry Townsend. This is my second year on the board, and I serve as the Treasurer. While the Tamarack Swim Club treasurer does not initiate any expenditures, my role is to ensure proper recording of financial transactions, provide financial reporting to the board, and the completion of IRS filings. I have a history of assisting other area not-for-profit organizations, implementing sound financial stewardship and controls. My wife and I have four boys and spend a good deal of our “free” time supporting the boys academic, athletic, and church related endeavors. For any questions about the finances of our pool, feel free to reach out.
