Coaches we have three proposed changes to the OSCA bylaws this year. Along with some housekeeping to do. And the election of officers is needed. Jill and I are not running. A secretary and president are needed. The treasurer is up for re-election and Rick has agreed to run. As a group we might wish to elect the president on odd years and the secretary on even years. We should talk about this at the annual meeting.
Proposal 1 - Reduce the number of Educational Scholarships from 11 to eight.
In 2016 Rick was not at the meeting. During that meeting it was motioned to increase the scholarships from eight to 11. Motion was seconded and passed. The reasoning at the meeting was we had approximately $18,000.00 in the OSCA account. Rick and I had a discussion subsequently regarding what happened. And although we did have that amount in our account, that is not an accurate cash flow number.
Shelly did not attend the ASCA world convention her last year as OSCA Chair nor did Rich Toberghe. In addition I have not attended the World Clinic during any of the four years as OSCA Chair. Rick said that it is normal for the Clinic to run $1500-$1600 per year. Five years of clinic would run at least $7500. This would bring our balance down to less than $11,000.
In Summary both the President and the Treasurer support this motion.
Proposal 2 - This proposal removes the election of the Zone staff from OSCA and puts oversight with the BoD. This comes out of the Task Force created at the last HoD.
Proposal 3 - This proposal creates a nominating Committee for Coaches of the Year and Swimmers of the year. Comes out of the task created at the last OSCA meeting.
