ILCA-NA Executive Committee
Meeting Minutes
April 12, 2011

Chairman Tracy Usher called the meeting to order at 9:00 pm EDT.  Also in attendance were Eric Faust, Evan Lewis, Lauralee Symes and Sherri Campbell. Clay Johnson and Jerelyn Biehl were unable to attend.

1.    The minutes from March 8, 2011 were approved as circulated.

2.     Action Items
a.    Laser Performance contract: since notification of our intended deadline of March 31st to have a signed sponsorship contract, there has been some communication with Bill Crane at LP.  Due to negotiation on other items with ILCA, our contract with LP is on hold.  A decision of some kind is expected within the next couple weeks.  Also a past due payment of $3,750 since 10/1/10 has now been paid.  It was decided to postpone looking for an alternative sponsor until our next ExCom call.

3.    Office Report
a.    The Laser Sailor: Spring issue in the mail.  Plans for the summer issue to follow.
b.    Finances:  Distributed by email earlier.  Nothing unusual to note.
c.    Membership: Currently ahead of the March 2010 level but still lagging behind 2009 and 2008.  The drawing for Laser 200,000 presented an opportunity to request current membership status from all drawing entrants who were not already current members.  Several have followed through and those will be included in the April numbers.

4.    US Olympic Sailing Committee proposal: A request came in from the USOSC to have discretionary berths awarded for the Radial Youth World Championship for each gender.  The discussion concluded that since the World Qualification rules system for the 2012 Worlds has been posted since January 2011, no change should be made to those now.  It was agreed that we would incorporate this request for both US Sailing and Canadian Yachting Association in the system for the 2013 Radial Youth Worlds.

5.    Update on ILCA/GS/LP: A rule change has been proposed by ILCA with voting open until September 2011.  Approval will allow ILCA to continue to issue ISAF plaques to all approved builders and will force Global Sailing and Laser Performance to sort out their differences in court without the involvement of ILCA.    Several members of the ExCom requested some guidelines about the best way to answer inquiries from ILCA-NA members about the situation.  Tracy and Sherri agreed to put something together.

6.    AOB:  Sherri asked if we wanted to continue to advertise in The Opti News as a way to draw the aging out Opti sailors into the Laser 4.7 and Laser Class in general.  It was generally thought that we should continue and Sherri will present the costs at the next call and a final decision will be made at that time.

The next call is scheduled for May 10.

Meeting adjourned at 9:50 pm
