Rich Kowalewski read the meeting minutes for the fourth quarter

the meeting minutes for the General Election meeting. They were
also approved and accepted to record.
Gary Wheeler presented no formal financial report for record. He
advised all that he would produce and present a final report for
the 2004-05 school term at the second quarterly meeting. He also
discussed the status of the school contracts for the new school
apprised the group of the progress of research into a web site for
A-1. It was determined that web master, Bill Purtil, builder of
the MCOA web site was favorable and it was recommended that the
group use him. The motion to use him was brought to the floor. A
hand vote was cast. The result to choose him was unanimous.
Van Slyke confirmed his loyalty to A-1 after some discussion about
elected officers working for other associations in their elected
sport. It was determined by President Bruno that he did not want
to see a conflict of interest by any elected officer, of any sport
in this regard. The final resolve was that no elected Executive
Officer of A-1 will accept assignments, in any of our five sports,
from any competitive association. Furthermore, no elected Division
Officer will accept assignments from any competitive association
in the sport in which he/she was elected to hold office. The statement
by President Bruno ended the discussion and no further actions ensued.
Jessica Lunsford Act was discussed at length. In as much as it has
just been handed down to the common folk, there is no certainty,
at this time, what actions must be taken by our group. There also
is no procedure outlined yet that gives instructions for testing
and certification. All present felt that it will have a great impact
on our group. Many questions still must be answered.
Bruno requested that all contact information for all Board members
be updated and distributed to the Board members and school Athletic
Directors. Secretary, Harris will fulfill this request.
Hannah requested changes to the pay period frequency for Basketball.
Volleyball Officer, Steve Williamson also expressed similar concerns.
