Meeting Agenda

By Al Myers

Nationals is right around the corner, and with that comes our Annual National Meeting. The USAWA has only one meeting per year which always coincides with our National Championships. It’s at this meeting the big issues of the USAWA are decided upon.  The rest of the year the organization is governed by the Executive Board.

The meeting will be held at Frank Ciavattone’s home on Friday night (the day before the meet).  Frank’s address is 204 East Street, East Walpole, MA.  Frank has graciously offered to feed us as well before the meeting! Supper will be at 6:00 PM with the meeting following that.  These are Frank’s words:

“The menu for the meeting will be Lasagna and Cold Cuts etc plus drinks! I figure we can eat at 6 and you can start the meeting at 7pm. This will give everyone to spend time to rest or catch up with old friends! Looking forward to our reunion!!! “

As Secretary, I have prepared the agenda for the 2016 Annual Meeting which is as follows.

Meeting Agenda

One of the big parts of our 2011 USAWA National Championship will be the Annual National Meeting (ANM) of the USAWA.   I have put together the meeting agenda, and it has been approved by the USAWA Executive Board.   There are no “big topics” on the agenda like there has been the last couple of years (i.e. the rulebook and the bylaws).  The biggest agenda item will be the election of officers.   All officer positions will be up for re-election (the USAWA bylaws require this every two years, on odd-numbered years).   Only those present at the meeting will have voting privileges (no proxy votes, which is also outlined in our bylaws).  So if you are upset about how the administration of the USAWA is “running the show”, this is your chance to voice your opinion or “throw your hat” into the candidate pool for an officer position. 

The ANM will be held on June 24th, Friday evening at 6:30 PM.  The meeting site will be the JWC Training Hall (for directions contact Thom or myself).  Immediately following the meeting a meal will be provided for the membership present.   Thom has assured me that this meal will be a “steak and potatoes” type of meal and NOT a “frank and beans” type of meal so bring your appetite.   The cost of this will be donations only.
