Meeting called to order at 6:39 by President Johnny Mendez. Motion to approve the September minutes as amended passed unanimously.
Treasurer’s Report: Lisa Segear reviewed the monthly finances. Skatership is quite low, which is a problem (we are averaging around 8 per session; 13 is the break-even point). Motion to accept the Treasurer’s report passed unanimously.
Officials’ and Professionals’ Liaisons: No reports
Test Chair: October 27 is the next test session (14 tests).
o VCTI – Susan Harrington reported that the team open house will be October 27. Team schedule is in flux because of the USFS delay in scheduling the Excel event.
o OTI-14 skaters and the season is well under way. CE is a contradance, and they are working with a contradance caller.
New England Inter-Club Council (NEICC) delegates: we need 2 delegates. NEICC hosts a website with event calendar and results and they offer scholarships for education for officials. Nick Bond is willing to be one; Johnny Mendez will be the other.
o Team policies: extensive discussion led to revisions. Susan will circulate a revised policy for action next month. Discussion reflected in the attached draft.
o Other policies in need to revision: revise Team/Committee policy when we update the team policy.
File Storage and Distribution: Google drive possibilities: Johnny recommends we look at setting up google drive space for agenda/minutes policies
