History

The Fairbanks Figure Skating Club (FFSC) was formed in 1984 to encourage the sport of amateur figure skating. We are concerned with guiding and directing our members and any interested people toward the maximum use of their talents and abilities. A primary goal of the Club is to instill self-esteem, self-motivation, personal accountability, good sportsmanship, and the ability to work with others to achieve common goals. We also hope to assist skaters in personal goal setting and achievement through educational skating classes, clinics, test sessions, shows and competitions.

The Fairbanks Figure Skating Club is incorporated as a non-profit

{501(c) 3} organization sanctioned by US Figure Skating (USFS). Club By-Laws have been established to secure compliance with federal and state laws governing non-profit organizations, and to align the Club operations with standards established by USFS.

The power of the Club is vested in its members. Members select the Club Board Directors to act as their representatives in the making of policy, establishing and updating bylaws, and filing the required state and USFS reports and forms. Members of the Board are volunteers who also function as the Club Officers: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and up to four additional voting Board members. The Board selects volunteers to function as Committee Chairs to carry out the policies and manage operations designed to support the purpose and objectives of the Club. Board members also select Delegates to the USFS who attend meetings of the USFS, either in person or by proxy.
