IV.     Member Meeting

We discussed the scheduling of a annual meeting on May 6, 2010 to be held at the Lion’s Club.

V.       Financial Update

John Curran updated the board on the status of the association financials.  Outstanding invoices for ice fees and the banquets were paid, which were our primary outstanding accounts payable except that the sound system invoices remain outstanding.

VI.      Sound System

The sound system we arranged to be purchased for the rink was installed and will be ready to use when the rink reopens in the Fall.

VII.    Board Nominations/Elections

We discussed the status of board nominations for the upcoming year.  The board unanimously approved the two candidates recommended by the nominating committee.  They will be presented for review and recommended for approval to the membership at the May annual member meeting.  We also discussed the possibility of adding an additional non-voting board member who had expressed interest in such a role.

VIII.   Walk-Ins 

We discussed the status of applications for association scholarship grants.

IX.     Player Placements

We discussed the recommendations for player placements as presented by the placement committee.  Contingent upon how many players ultimately commit to the program, we preliminarily expect to have the following numbers of boys teams for next year:  Midgets (2), Bantams (1), Peewees (2) and Squirts (3).  We also discussed options for some of the teams with numbers that don’t necessarily lend themselves easily to a set number of teams. Teams will be announced in the next week or so and players will be given 30 days to make the initial payment to hold their place on the team.

X.       Next Meeting

The next board meeting will be Monday, May 3, 2010 at the Flett Room of the Belmont Public Library.

XI.      Adjournment

Brian Quirk adjourned the meeting at 9:15 p.m.
