III. Renting Office Space for the Organization – Ezekiel Kesitilwe

A. Because vice-presidents are becoming paid positions, Ezekiel suggests renting a space (small building or cubicle space) to work out of, store League items, et cetera. More consideration to the costs needed before a decision can be made, with all options considered. Topic tabled until April.

IV. 03 Lions Tea Refund Approval – Chris Daigle

A. Due to lack of tournaments around high school schedule, parents to be refunded dues/fees in the total amount of $725.00. This action is already approved through the Lions committee. Robert Starkey motions to approve refund in the amount of $725.00; Ezekiel Kesitilwe seconds. Motion passes unanimously.

V. League Account Financing Club Items – Chris Daigle

A. If it becomes necessary for the League to finance any costs for the Lions, it will be completely transparent and repaid. Chris will make approvals and notify the Board.

VI. Paying for Fields to be Marked for Spring and Beyond – Chris Daigle

A. The Field Coordinator position is being phased out. Brett Miller has offered to mark fields for us for a donation of $600.00 to his club, plus the cost of paint for the Spring Season. Ezekiel suggests looking into new field marking equipment for the League. Katherine Blanchard motions to allot $600.00 for the Spring Season and up to $1,500.00 for the Fall Season to hire out field marking, with a re-evaluation each new season; Marc Zettel seconds. Motion passes unanimously.

VII. AGM Dates (4/20 or 4/27) – Chris Daigle

A. 4/27 in conflict with possible coaching clinic, so the Board decides to schedule the AGM for 4/20. Tamara to look into reserving Library Room A & B for a 10A-1P meeting that is open to the public. Changes discussed at bylaw meeting will be presented at the AGM.

VIII. Approval for Purchase of Lions Practice Jerseys to be Used as Uniforms for High School-Aged Teams – Chris Daigle

A. Shirts to remain property of the League, to be “rented out” to players for a small fee. Quantity of 50 ordered to cover three teams at the total cost of $1,026. Robert Starkey motions to approve purchase; Marc Zettel seconds. Motion passes unanimously.

IX. Referee Shortage – Katherine Blanchard

A. The League is limited on adult referees. LHSL believes in using certified refs, though it is not required for rec league. As a League, we may need to start with volunteers, provide training, and reimburse them for refereeing.

X. Other Information / Topics:

A. Because of the process of setting everything up with the bank, Chris suggests making the Treasurer position a 3-year term.

B. Each member/coordinator position held to detail the scope of their duties as standard operating procedure reference.
