The meeting was called to order at 6:30 pm.
Minutes: The December 9, 2019 Board of Directors Meeting Minutes were reviewed, amended, and approved as amended.
Finance: Pat reported available funds and highlighted expenses during the last month. He summarized sums due from League members including for recently issued invoices for League clinic attendance.
Commissioners: Jenn and Ken reported on efforts to address timing resolutions arising at dual meets, and roster issues which can result when swimmer names are not entered consistently. However, the Commissioners did not levy any fines and teams have been cooperative when issues are identified.
The Board considered a request to excuse a fine issued because the meet manager operator at a dual meet had not attended a League clinic. After consideration of the information supplied by the team, the Board declined to excuse the fine. The Board will issue a reminder to Referees to check the credentials of all key meet officials, including meet manager operators, before every League meet.
Championships/Distance Meets: Carl reported that all meeting invitations were complete, reviewed by MidAtlantic and posted on the website. Certain events in one of the distance meets are full, and Carl is working with the host to add heats to accommodate more swimmers.
Hartley Meet: Erik and Mark reported that GCIT confirmed the meet date (2/22). A Colorado 7, which is a laptop, will be utilized instead of the console at the deeper pool. The Board discussed ways to recruit officials for the meet.
Other Business: The Board discussed which procedure would be applicable for voting on any proposal that a League member may submit for changes to dual meets. Tom reported that he provided contact information to Terri Edgar for Executives at member Yï¿½s. In addition, Tom is collecting and reviewing old League documents and hopes to prepare a brief history of the League.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:12 pm.
Respectfully submitted, Elliot Berton
