1. Mr. Avila summarized the legal opinion he was asked to draft for CSLSA.
2. Mr. Brewster, Mr. Butki, Mr. McGowan, Mr. Moore, Mrs. Graham and Mr. Richardson shared their opinions on the USLA/USOC membership issue.
3. Mr. Beuerlein read the conclusion of the CSLSA legal opinion.
MOTION: Moved by Mr. Avila to vote to determine if CSLSA desires USLA to continue efforts to affiliate with the USOC.
SECOND: Mr. Butki
|DISCUSSION:||Mr. Williams asked "what is the intent of USLA? Is it competition? Should the bylaws of the organization be changed for one committee?" Mr. Williams said that he agreed with USOC affiliation but that it should not be accomplished by changing the USLA Bylaws.|
|MOTION:||Moved by Mr. Moore that the delegation proceed with the following priority: 1) to continue to try to align with the USOC by finding other possible options, 2) to support Option II (add 2 executive board members) if forced to support one of the proposed USLA Bylaw Amendments, and 3) defeat Option I.|
ACTION: Motion for lack of a second.
|MOTION:||Moved by Mrs. Graham to vote on Option I, Option II (adding 2 executive board members), and Option III (neither Option I, nor Option II, but proceed with another avenue for USOC affiliation, like an ad hoc committee).|
SECOND: Mr. Richardson
|DISCUSSION:||Mr. Williams said we need to figure out if we want Option I or II, or neither. Then we can figure out if we want to pursue an Option III. Mr. Moore commented that the motion takes away the CSLSA Executive Board's flexibility. Mr. McGowan said that if the body votes no on Options I & II, then we vote for Option III. Mr. Moore said that there is no Option III being presented by USLA at this time. Mr. Avila said that if we vote no on Options I & II, then there are no changes to the USLA Bylaws at this time. Mr. Pierce suggested that we vote on Option III first, then vote on Options I & II only if Option III is not approved. Mr. Moore agreed with Mr. Pierce. Mr. Butki said that we should vote on Options I & II first because those are the only 2 options currently being presented by the USLA.|
|ACTION:||Option I - YEA: 0, NAE: 54||Option II - YEA: 51, NAE: 3||Option III - YEA: 54, NAE: 0|
4. Mr. Moore said, based on the vote, his understanding was that CSLSA Executive Board Members would meet with other regions at Asilomar to determine if there is support for an Option III. If there is, CSLSA will support Option III. If the other regions do not support Option III, CSLSA will vote in favor of Option II. Mr. McGowan stated that he agreed. No other CSLSA Board Member voiced disagreement.
B. New CSLSA Chapters (North Island & Campus Point)
1. Mr. McGowan said that the vote to approve the new chapters is pending the onsite review.
2. Mrs. Graham stated the conditional approval for both prospective chapters would be extended until the Fall 2009 CSLSA Meeting.
IX. New Business
A. Bylaw Change for Membership Year ATTACHMENT BB

SECOND: Mr. Richardson
B. Proposed Amendment to CSLSA Bylaws ATTACHMENT CC
(USOC affiliation with USLA)
|MOTION:||Moved by Mr. Richardson to amend the CSLSA Bylaws as read into these minutes (refer to ATTACHMENT CC) at the Fall 2009 CSLSA Meeting if the USLA Bylaw Amendments for USOC affiliation are approved.|
SECOND: Mr. Moore
