Last monthly meeting before the annual meeting. No formal agenda for this one and not much in the way of business to discuss beyond future events like the aforementioned annual meeting the upcoming national conference. For the annual meeting, there are still questions about possibilities for a screen and podium (need to discuss with hotel) and also a matter of food (last year $2,461 was spent on food & room).

President adding for the record: Lease renewal is a board decision. It’s a large commitment that binds the board to a financial obligation for a couple of years. It is something the board needs to be in the loop on.

 

Mr. Vaitones brought up something related to the first XC Grand Prix event (GBTC XC Festival). Some members of Sisu brought up a complaint about team scoring directly to Facebook from the meet on Sunday. Scoring problem was raised at the meet, but then it was pointed out again later that night when results still hadn’t been updated to reflect the correction.
