ILCA-NA Executive Committee

Meeting Minutes

January 12, 2010


Chairman Tracy Usher called the meeting to order at 8:00 pm.  Also in attendance were Clay Johnson, Lauralee Symes, Tommy Wharton, Brent Richards of LaserPerformance and Sherri Campbell. Eric Faust and Jerelyn Biehl were unable to make the call.


  1. The minutes from November 10, 2009 were approved with minor corrections.


  1.  World Council update – report was given by Tracy.  A new vote was taken and the composition of the World Council will now be in accordance with the ILCA Constitution.  This means that the North American region will now be represented at the meetings by only the Region Chairman instead of by both the Region Chairman and Vice Chairman as has been the case for several years.


  1. 2010 Grand Prix
    1. The proposed 2010 system was reviewed and a minor change was made to the 4.7 section to include the 2010 Orange Bowl instead of the 2009 Orange Bowl.
    2. Brent Richards indicated that LaserPerformance wishes to continue its sponsorship of the series.  He agreed to have an outline of the 2010 prizes to us by the end of the week.  This would be ideal as a way to promote the series throughout the year.


  1. 2011 World Qualification system – the proposed draft was adopted with a minor wording change to the Senior and Radial Womens section to be circulated by email for approval.


  1. 2010 Membership Drive proposal – Tracy added comments to the proposal he had sent out prior to the call.  Discussion followed about ways to involve the fleet captains to encourage their fleet members to join the class.  It was agreed that this would also need to involve the district secretaries as it would likely require some updating of our fleet captain contact details.  Tracy agreed to continue to detail this plan to the ExCom with an intended roll out by 2/1/2010.  An idea of a poster to send out to dealers and various youth programs to encourage class membership was discussed.


  1. 4.7 growth strategy – a short discussion was held.  Brent Richards was asked if there was a possibility to have some loaner 4.7 rigs made available as had been done several years ago.  He agreed to look into this and get back to the group.


  1. AOB – none


Next call set for February 9th.


Meeting adjourned at 9:15 pm
