The meeting was called to order at 6:40 pm.
Minutes: The Minutes from the June 12, 2017 Board of Directors Meeting were reviewed and approved as amended.
Finance: The Board reviewed account statements, summaries and an Aging Summary prepared by the Treasurer. The Treasurer's report was approved as presented. Tom presented a proposed procedure to assure that League Clinics are properly administered and invoices promptly issued for the attendance fee. The procedure also is designed to make clinic scheduling more efficient and to enhance efforts to make it easier for volunteer officials to attend. The procedure will be implemented for the upcoming Season.
- Championships: The Board discussed entry procedures for Championships, including the benefits of a preliminary and final entry deadline. Procedures will allow for some flexibility to correct mistakes, while promoting consistency in resolving entry issues. The Meet Invitation will be adjusted to more clearly explain the entry procedures and deadlines.
- Training: Fred suggested that the League post a schedule of League Clinics as early as possible. Some clinics have already been arranged. Board coordinators and trainers for Referee, AO, and Meet Manager Operator clinics were urged to contact Y's to set clinic dates and times so that volunteer officials will have sufficient opportunities to get certified. Trainers must keep the Board coordinators informed so that the schedule can be updated and posted on the website.
Scheduling: Erik advised that a preliminary draft of the Meet schedule is almost ready, and will be circulated to coaches for comment in August.
Calendar: Elliot reviewed the Board calendar. The Board provided input and the Calendar will be updated.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:11 pm.
Respectfully submitted, Elliot Berton
