Financial Report: Elliot reported the fund balance at the end of the 2017-2018 season. Pat issued invoices for championship fees and League dues. Tri-Valley expressed appreciation that the invoices were issued early. Income and expenses were examined. The Board evaluated League needs for fund reserves to meet scheduled expenses. After determining that there will be sufficient funds on hand for League needs, a motion was passed to propose that the League reimburse member YMCAs for the cost to acquire Meet Manager 7.0. The proposal will be presented to the members at the Fall League meeting. The Treasurer's report was accepted as presented.
Scheduling: Erik reported on the status of the schedule and efforts to accommodate member "blackout" dates. A draft schedule was completed and circulated to the teams for comment.
Championships: Carl reported that some Championship bids are in. He also reported that September 7th is the deadline to submit bids to host a Championship Meet or the Distance Meet.
Charlie Hartley: A discussion was held about entry times. They will be adjusted. The Board also debated whether to make changes to swimmer "bonus" events. The consensus reached was: only the entry times will be adjusted. The adjusted entry times will be explained to the members at the Fall League meeting.
