6:30 PM Online Video Conferencing

LHSL Board of Directors in attendance: Chris Daigle, Tamara Webster, Bre Kistler, Ezekiel Kesitilwe, Robert Starkey, Marcia Lynnes, Kimberly Alexander

Meeting called to order at 6:33 PM on Monday, February 1st, 2021.

I. Financial Reports / Update on Earmarking*

A. LHSL – Kimberly Alexander

1. Current balance is not yet reconciled for the month of January and amounts to $69,721.90. The financial statements and reports are provided to Board Members. There are currently no questions or concerns from the Board, and future inquires will be directed via email to Kimberly.

B. Lions – Lauren Farshler / Chris Daigle

1. Chris would like to further discuss Lions' payback to the League for the previous OSA Camp expenditures, as some things may change with a possible Club/Rec restructure. He is hopeful that collections and payouts (dues paid in, stipends paid out, etc) will be self-supporting by February.

II. Discussion of Treasurer's Laptop Computer Kimberly Alexander

A. The computer is being bogged down by unknown processes and takes twice as long to process commands; antivirus/malware programs seem to have made processing times even worse. Bre estimates the laptop is about seven years old. The Board discusses allotting funds to a new laptop, and believes $700 is sufficient to purchase an adequate replacement. Ezekiel Kesitilwe motions to approve $700.00 towards the purchase of a new Treasurer's laptop. Bre Kistler seconds the motion. The motion passes unanimously.

III. Possible Reorganization of Lions & League to Benefit Club & RecChris Daigle

A. Most other organizations are set up as a Club supporting a Rec League; we are currently structured as a Rec League supporting a Club. A restructure would see the Treasurer, Registrar, and Secretary position remain the same, but with possible changes to the PIO and Sponsorship Coordinator positions.

B. The League has difficulty getting volunteers, not for lack of asking. Chris suggests offering a discount to Lions' parents for volunteering in the League for such positions as Field Coordinator, Equipment Coordinator, etc. Club benefits by having players fed in from the League.

C. Ezekiel corroborates Chris's points regarding the current structure and need for a restructure. He believes we could do a year-long Rec Program (sans summer, due to weather).

D. Chris would like to form a committee to further discuss this restructure.

IV. Other Information / Topics:

A. Bre needs ink, an approximately $125 expense. Robert Starkey motions to approve $125 towards the purchase of ink. Kimberly Alexander seconds the motion. The motion passes unanimously.

B. Bre Kistler motions to approve the Lions January meeting minutes. Robert Starkey seconds the motion. The motion passes unanimously.

C. Our outside party candidate is uninterested in lining the fields.

D. Registration for Spring Rec Season is currently open; it closes on February 1st. Practices begin March 8th. Game will run from March 26th through May 7th.

E. Interests for Sponsorship can go to Bre.

Meeting adjourned at 7:05 PM on Monday, February 1st, 2021. The next LHSL Board Meeting and AGM date and time are to be decided.
