MINUTES OF THE BOARD

APRIL 8, 2003

Members Present: Mick Sharkey, Terry Maxey, Ray Vaughn, Bill Smith, Tom Driggers, Clint Bard, Bob Goe, Don Schneider, Kim Webb, Bob Hartman, Angelo Zolatas, Eddie Gregory, Kirk Brinker, Mike Condon, Bob Hill

Members Absent: Bobby Sagers, Jr., and Dan Bley

Meeting called to order at 7:06 pm.

Minutes of the meeting of March 18, 2003 were read.  Motion by Hartman to accept the minutes as written.  Passed unanimously.

The Board discussed the replacement of New Member Class Instructor Frank Luhn.  Vaughn informed the Board of the new bylaw requiring the Rules Interpreter to present the Board with a list of instructors for approval.  The Board requested that Vaughn E-mail the association and asked interested parties to contact Bard.  The Board will revisit this item at our next meeting and approve a list of qualified instructors.

Bard suggested that the Board consider holding separate meetings geared toward second and third year Class 2 members.  These meetings would be held in a separate room on our specified meeting nights.  The Board is in favor of this idea and would like to hear more on it at our next meeting.  Bard will coordinate the organization of these classes and draw on the cadre of instructors assembled to help him implement this program.

Driggers suggested that the Board consider having the New Member Class coordinate meetings in conjunction with our association meetings so that the new members would get some exposure to our general rule interpretation meetings.  The Board was in favor of this suggestion and asked Bard to work out the logistics in his planning for these classes.

The above recommendations concerning holding separate meetings will be contingent on the availability of meeting space at Norwood High School.  Sharkey will communicate with Athletic Director Steve Moeller of Norwood High School and see what the possibilities of having separate meeting rooms are.

Sharkey suggested that the new members have a meeting at the end of the season and discuss any concerns they may have encountered over the course of the season.  This meeting may be held in conjunction with our last association meeting at the Hamilton County Office of Education.  The Board was also in favor of this idea and will have the New Member Lead Instructor coordinate this effort.

The next topic of discussion was the appointment of the Association Treasurer.  The Board asked the current Treasurer Bill Smith to leave the room before the selection process began.  Vaughn read the list of candidates and a brief resume on each.  The following is a list of candidates for Treasurer:  Bill Smith, Tom Driggers, Matt Schenz and Tom Moehring.  The Board appointed Bill Smith as Treasurer for the three-year period ending 2006.

The appointment of the Sergeant-at Arms was the next order of business.  Vaughn read the list of candidates and a brief resume on each.  The Board asked current Sergeant at Arms Tom Driggers to leave the room before the selection process began.  The following is a list of candidates for this position:  Tom Driggers, Terry Roy, Joe Coffaro and Bob Kruthaupt.  The Board decided that in light of the current proposals to segregate the meetings there would be a need for two people to fill this position and split the salary.  The Board selected Tom Driggers and Terry Roy as co-Sergeant at Arms for the one-year term ending 2004.

President Sharkey made the following committee appointments:

  • Nomination:  Hartman (Chairman), Webb
  • Blue Book:  Condon (Chairman), Vaughn
  • Grievance:  Hill (Chairman)
  • Program:  Sharkey (Chairman), Schneider
  • Election:  Driggers (Chairman), Brinker, Webb
  • Auditing:  Bley (Chairman)
  • Entertainment:  Zolatas (Chairman), Maxey, Gregory

Smith and Schneider presented the Board with a brief summary of the qualifications and requirements needed to apply for the OHSAA Hall of Fame.  Motion by Hartman to nominate Bob Sagers, Sr. as the OVOA candidate for the 2004 OHSAA Hall of Fame.  Passed unanimously.

The Board tabled the selection of candidates for the Dan Tehan award until Vaughn can E-mail a list of qualified members.  Each Board member will bring in their selection for consideration at the next Board meeting.

The Board asked Vaughn to check with Princeton High School for available space to hold an association meeting immediately following the clinic on October 20.  If space cannot be secured then the association will hold its first on Wednesday October 22.

Motion by Hill to adjourn 8:29 pm.  Passed unanimously.

Respectfully Submitted,

Ray Vaughn

Secretary, OVOA
