Member Survey Results: The Board reviewed the preliminary results of the Member survey and noted some of the observations:
- There was no response from 9 teams.
- There was a response from 18 teams.
- Most head coaches responded.
- 3 Teams had multiple responses.
The Board was compiling an executive summary of the survey results to send out to the people who responded to the survey.
Information from National or Members Regarding Operations: There was an update from those who knew about the status of different members and their return to swim. There was some discussion on various plans being formulated by both PA YMCA Swimming and YMCA National Swimming on different virtual meet formats as well as qualifying requirements if the different meets are able to proceed next year.
As those requirements and formats are finalized, the Board will make sure to share with Members. Some of the concerns expressed were the impact of the PA Governor's comments about no sports taking place until January of 2021 as well as the upcoming decision of PIAA sports.
Fall Meeting: The date of 9/26 was confirmed for the fall meeting. The Board discussed some of the logistics and administration associated with the meeting being virtual. There was discussion of a draft agenda that would be formulated in the next couple of weeks with the hope that it could go out to members a week or two before the meeting.
Finance: The Board discussed that there were no financial transactions during the previous month except for the small Monthly fee.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:00 pm.
Respectfully submitted, Bruce Cooper
