BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING MINUTES
August 12, 2019
Attendance: Elliot Berton, Tom Warrick, Bert Hewitt, Kelly Burk, Ken Burk, Fred Polaski*, Howard Halpern*, Carl Sandoe* (* - By Phone)
The Meeting was called to order at 6:32 pm.
Minutes: The June 10, 2019 Board of Directors Meeting Minutes were reviewed, amended and approved as amended.
Finance: The Board reviewed the financial report. Elliot noted that the 2018-2019 Season finances have been closed. Pat reported that invoices for the 2019-2020 Season team dues and Championship Fees have been transmitted. The invoices must be paid on or prior to the Fall League Meeting on September 21, 2019. The Board noted that there are sufficient funds available to purchase Rule Books and replace 2 laptop computers used by the Commissioners before the Fall Meeting. The financial report was approved.
Officials: Fred discussed efforts to schedule Referee Clinics and identified approved trainers for Officials Classes. Fred is planning to conduct a series of Clinics and Classes in the North East part of the League over one or two weekends. Fred asked for input on the content of the Referee Clinic. Bert observed that with fewer approved trainers it will be difficult to schedule as many Administrative Officials Clinics and Classes this year. The first League Referee, Administrative Official and Meet Manager Clinics will be offered after the Fall Meeting on September 21, 2019.
Scheduling: The Board noted that Erik has solicited black out dates and other input from all League members. Approximately half of the teams have responded so far.
Championships and Distance Meets: Carl noted that one Championship host bid has been submitted. He will issue a reminder of the deadline to submit bids. The Board also discussed options for shortening the second session timeline at the Distance Meets. Carl will discuss these options, including the prospect for incorporating a third session, with the Meet hosts.
Commissioners: Ken reported that the Commissioners are preparing for the Season and will issue reminders of key deadlines and procedures to help teams to comply with League requirements.
The Meeting was adjourned at 8:34 pm.
Respectfully submitted, Elliot Berton
