Treasurer: 
  • Dave has been tracking our accounts and has moved our CD money into a Bank of America savings account so when a deal comes along on a new CD, he can quickly move it to that new CD. He had to open a new checking account due to clerical error on the banks part that had an old Tax ID Number for ODSL, so new account was opened with the correct Tax ID Number and money was transferred to the new account.
  • Board reviewed current Statement of Assets, Liabilities & Equity, dated March 31, 2011.
  • Discussion on responsibilities of the treasurer position, and possible candidates who could fill this position.
  • Discussion on possible fee increase and when the last time there was a fee increase. We currently are not having any issues financially, but we don’t want to be in a position where we have to make a drastic increase, we would rather increase in small increments.
  • Discussion was held on rather we need to increase referee payments, which in turn would increase league fee’s.

  • Applications will be online for the Fall 2011 Season June 1st, with due date of July 7th. Fees will be due by July 14th.
  • R & D issues have been really quiet, behavior has been really good.
 
Vice President:

Ideas consist of providing a U-8 All-Star division, merging with or providing a similar service that SFL provides. Other ideas is to do better or more marketing to the area clubs and in Maryland.
