LMSC Meeting June 13, 2015

Meeting minutes for LMSC Annual Meeting, Chattanooga, TN                                                                   June 13, 2015



The meeting was called to order at 11:37am by Helen Naylor, Chair 


A motion was made to approve the minutes from the previous annual meeting by Sarah King and seconded by Allison Ware.  The minutes were unanimously approved.


The Chair highlighted events in the LMSC this past year, as well as the upcoming National Coaches Clinic next month in Nashville.


If any teams would like to host a DZ championship (SCY, SCM, LCM, OW) in 2016, please let us know!


The bulk of the discussion focused on Open Water events.  A new event is in the pipeline for next year, hopefully in Nashville.  More details forthcoming.  The current $1000 surcharge for open water events is likely to change.  The finance committee has approved the proposal from the finance and open water subcommittees.  It will now go to the National Board, and then to the House of Delegates at Convention.  The new proposal will include a national sanction fee and a small per participant fee.  Minimum and maximum caps will be in place.  The current proposal also includes a national sanction fee for pool events.  The goal is to help spread out the insurance costs for all events that benefit from our insurance.  We’ll see how it goes at convention!


With no other Questions / Concerns / Comments, the meeting was adjourned.  Thank you to Stan Corcoran and the River Rats for hosting and to all who attended.
