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 the president, three vice presidents, secretary, treasurer three athlete members, two coaching members, and four group coordinators.

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

All Board members serve a one year term, with the exception of the President, which is a two-year term. U.S. Figure Skating President Anne Cammett’s two-year term ends in May 2020.

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.
