March 9, 2020
Attendance: Elliot Berton, Tom Warrick, Mark Fisher, Ken Burk, Bruce Cooper, Rick Carson, Kelly Burk, Pat Ryan, Erik Nelson, Howard Halpern, Fred Polaski (All participation By Phone conference)
The meeting was called to order at 6:32 pm.
Minutes: The February 10, 2020 Board of Directors Meeting Minutes were approved as submitted.
Finance: Pat reported on the balance of funds and highlighted transactions during the last month. He summarized the League expenses during the last period with all payments being related to championship meet expenses.
There are also a few invoices related to income from the Divisional hosting clubs that should be received as income by the end of March.
There is also expected income from Ridley for the Charlie Hartley meet, but that invoice had not yet been sent.
The Board reviewed a cash flow report for the Season and evaluated whether additional funds might be needed in next year's budget. The Treasurer's report was approved as presented.
- Rule 1.10: The Board considered proposals to change the Rule and clarify the deadline for submitting initial rosters. The rule was approved by the Board for presentation to the league members for voting.
- Rule 2.9 A and B: The Board has a draft of the proposed changes to rule 2.9 covering what Officials are required to be provided for a dual meet and who is required to source those positions. The goal is to clarify who is responsible to supply key officials. Being as this rule was lengthier and more complicated each Board member was asked to review on their own and send comments to Fred and Tom to complete the Boards draft at the next meeting.
- Jefferson-Mark reported the meet ran well. There was a minor issue with distribution of bag tags, but that was easily remedied.
- League records-Bruce presented a listing of proposed records that was based on the list of events swam at championship meets. The Board had some comments and a revised proposal will be presented at the next board meeting.
Awards: Kelly reported that the awards for championship meets went smoothly.
Charlie Hartley Meet: Erik and Mark reported that 1005 swimmers were entered into the Meet. Overall, the meet went well especially since Ridley didn't have to deal with the logistics of both food and selling shirts.
Next year Erik will evaluate adding events for 8 & U swimmers such as the 100 Yard Freestyle and/or a 100 Yard individual Medley.
Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 9:03 pm.
Respectfully submitted: Bruce Cooper
