Leadership and Staff

The organizational structure of U.S. Figure Skating is built around a strong volunteer community and a dedicated staff of employees at U.S. Figure Skating Headquarters in Colorado Springs.

The leadership of the organization is centered on the Board of Directors, which consists of 15 voting members: president, five athlete directors, seven at-large directors and two independent directors. A vice president, secretary, and treasurer are elected by the voting members of the Board of Directors from among those persons (other than the president) who are serving as elected members of the Board of Directors at the time of the election of such officers.

The volunteer constituency formulates U.S. Figure Skating policy, and the staff works to carry out those policies and administer the day-to-day duties of the organization.

Board of Directors

Samuel Auxier was elected as President in May 2022 at Governing Council in Colorado Springs.

Beginning in 2023, all directors, except for the President and USOPC AAC representative serve a two-year term.  However, since this is the first year of a new Board of Directors structure, in order to establish that rotation, some directors will begin a two-year term and some will serve a one-year term. The President serves a four-year term, and the USOPC AAC Representative typically serves a four-year term, dependent upon election to that position.

Athlete Leadership

Athletes are at the core of U.S. Figure Skating’s mission and their involvement in the leadership of the organization is critical.

The Board of Directors, in addition to all committees, must be comprised of at least 33.3% athletes. As an athlete, this is not only your opportunity to “give back,” it is an opportunity to have a voice in the direction and experience of athletes who follow in your footsteps. It is also an opportunity to continue being a part of the skating community for years after you leave the ice as a competitor.

For more information about athlete leadership, please view the U.S. Figure Skating Athlete Leadership Handbook here. A directory of leadership can be found on Members Only here.

Committees

U.S. Figure Skating is comprised of 26 permanent committees, organized into five committee groups.  Each committee has a specific role to play in supporting the organization is carrying out its mission. The responsibilities of each committee, by group, are detailed in the U.S. Figure Skating Committee Handbook.

The committees oversee, interpret and adjust rules under their jurisdiction to ensure that their part of the sport is relevant, current and in support of where we want to go.  Committees evaluate, develop and implement programs to support members in their areas. Committees partner with staff liaisons and assigned departments at U.S. Figure Skating headquarters to ensure that their mission, programs, roles, etc., are carried out effectively throughout the organization.

Committee chairs are responsible for thoroughly understanding their area, understanding the Strategic Plan, and leading their members in supporting these areas.  Each committee is represented by a Group Coordinator on the Board of Directors. 

For more information about U.S. Figure Skating Committees, please view the U.S. Figure Skating Committee Handbook here. A directory of leadership can be found on Members Only here.
