Minutes from February 15, 2016 Board Meeting

These are notes from a meeting of the VHTRC board of directors held on February 15, 2016. These notes summarize the topics that were discussed and the decisions that were made. If you have a question or comment about this meeting, please send an e-mail to the board members.

Meeting held by phone.

Board members present: Alan Gowen, Tom McNulty, Keith Knipling, and Anstr Davidson

New business

Two decisions were made:

New board member

There was a discussion of the candidates to fill the vacancy on the board. Since the bylaws dictate that the president will nominate a member to be the new member, each of the other board members will send Alan his top ranked candidates. Based on those rankings, Alan will nominate a new board member for vote by the current board members.

Transgender policy

The board reviewed a draft policy on transgender runners that was produced as a result of the telephone meeting of January 27. It was moved, seconded and agreed that the draft will be sent for comment to the directors of all VHTRC events with an entry fee and the managers of all low-key VHTRC runs that have results. After consideration of any comments received, the draft policy will be made available to club members for coment prior to final vote by the board.

The board will hold another telephone meeting on February 29.

(This conversation was held before the board vacancy was filled. Thus all board members at the time of the conversation participated.)

Submitted by Anstr Davidson. Minutes approved by email on February 24, 2016.
