The ERCU Board of Directors will meet via Zoom on Tuesday, July 20 at 5:30 p.m., for approximately one hour.
The point of the meeting is to take care of club business, according to board chair Nelson Holmberg.
On the agenda includes a proposal to create a standing Competition Committee for the club, which would not include any board members, and would serve the purpose of addressing concerns about the racing rules in a timely and pro-active manner during the season. The committee would be empowered with creating "Competition Directives" that would address flaws, ambiguity and errors in the current rule book to make understanding and enforcing the rules easier for all.
These Competition Directives would then be reviewed by the board, and ultimately the entire membership, during the following offseason to address permanent changes to the rule book.
The board will also consider the creation of an ad hoc Master Hull Roster Committee that would be charged with updating the club's master hull roster and making corrections as deemed necessary. This committee would work for a finite period of time, to be determined, until the MHR is updated and accurate, then dissolve.
Other items on the agenda will be discussion of planning the ERCU Gold Cup, clarifying and implementing a process for the upcoming ERCU board of directors elections, and a process for selecting the season awards for 2021, which will include more involvement from the entire membership.
Finally, the club board will consider a plan for the end of season banquet, and will discuss concerns over scale appearance of our boats.
As always, in accordance with club bylaws, there will also be officers' reports and good of the order.
