Meeting called to order at 6:00 PM on Monday, February 3rd, 2020

 Financial Reports / Update on Earmarking*
o LHSL – Kimberly Alexander
 Money was lost this season due to paid Board positions and more games, which means more pay to referees. Chris will look at the numbers to see what the best course of action is for recouping costs.

o Lions – Lauren Farshler
 All those present were also present at the January Lions meeting; nothing new to report.

 LHSL College scholarship for LHHS students: how to choose the winners – Chris Daigle
o Chris reached out to Kali at the high school. Our application for sponsorship has been posted to the Career Center. Chris wants to delegate a committee made up of 2 Board Members, 1 Lions committee member, 1 person from the School District, and 1 member
from the Referee Association to create an evaluation sheet to “grade” applications in March. He expects to have an evaluation sheet for approval at the March meeting. This committee will go over applications and make a selection in April.

 AGM Wrap-Up – Lauren Farshler
o GotSoccer is transitioning to a new platform. There is no official start date yet, most likely around April. Anticipate training dates to be released, some highlights would be two merchant account options for monthly payments/registration, including notification of insufficient funds and multilanguage options.
o Uniforms: became acquainted with Soccer Post, who had a vendor booth. The needs of both Rec and Club were discussed, and Soccer Post has put together options for us to consider next season. Prices would go down as order increases; uniforms would be screen
printed in town; they would ship to us no print.
o AGM voting not needed since all positions were filled/continued unopposed. Big discussion on open tryouts and dates.

 Lion OSA Camp / League Reimbursement – Lauren Farshler
o See Attachments.
o Chris already approved LHSL covering this expense for Lions due to the timeline in which things were due, to be paid back by end of season (starting in February, and going through June.)
o Lauren will open email dialogue between herself, Kim, and Chris to work out the specifics.

 Other Information / Topics:
o Chris suggests over the next few years, slowly changing our colors to fit with the High School, especially considering the feeder program.
o The Board discusses switching registration platform from StackSports, back to GotSoccer.
o Ezekiel wants to approach the middle schools in Kingman, Fox Creek, LHC about starting a middle school program (regional league). Ezekiel's church is offering buses for transportation. There will be no conflict with Lions regarding play rules, game nights, etc.
Ezekiel will continue to spearhead this.

o The Board discusses a scrimmage between Lions, Bullhead City, and Kingman.
