 Larkins informed the Board that AFLAC Insurance company would like to come to one of our association meetings and present their product, as it relates to officiating, to the general membership. The Board instructed Larkins to talk to Cecil Young Insurance, a Blue Book sponsor, to see if he could offer the same product and give him the first opportunity to present. Larkins suggested that this presentation be made after the general membership has been excused from the meeting and interested parties may stay after and listen to the presentation.

 Larkins stated that there have been no new developments in the association online tournament voting and suggested we continue to use our current procedure again this year.
 Larkins presented the Board with an in-depth discussion of the proposed changes to the association Bylaws and Constitution. These changes will not alter the fundamental voting principals of the association but instead give the Board more leeway to adjust to the ever-changing environment that the OHSAA is implementing.
