New Business:

            Motion to allow executive meetings by teleconference.
                       Discussion:  Difficulty with present method of holding meetings in conjunction with events as committee members and officers are often too busy leading their respective judo clubs or running the event to devote undivided attention to meetings.  It is felt that allowing teleconference meetings will allow increased participation while minimizing travel time and expense.
                       Action: Russ Scherer will send a proposal to all member clubs for comment concerning a change to the OJI By-laws to allow teleconferencing for meetings.

            Inventory of Ohio Judo Inc. equipment.
                       Discussion:   A better method to maintain inventory control of Ohio Judo equipment assets need to be instituted by the organization.  Currently, a fixed process for inventory control of mats, score boards, trailer and other equipment is not in place for keeping accurate track of and chain of receipt for equipment as they move from event to event. The board feels that this issue needs to be rectified.
                       Action: Discussions with other Ohio Judo Inc. members will begin to help find a solution to this problem. Agenda item carried until next meeting.

 

Motion to adjourn the meeting. Seconded and unanimously passed
