NISCA Business 2020

Proposed By-law change, accepted 2019. 2nd ratification at NISCA Meeting #2, 2020

Proposal #1 Proposed March 23rd, 2019

ARTICLE IV Finances

SECTION 3 Stipends:

a. Any stipend must be voted by the membership present at the Annual General Meeting. Once approved, a stipend will be provided as noted until such time as it is either altered or revoked by similar vote. All stipend amounts shall be noted in the Constitution or By-laws.

b. The Journal Editor shall receive a stipend of $1500.00 per annum.

c. The Web Master shall receive a stipend of $1500.00 per annum.

Proposed change:

a.       Positions to receive stipends shall be voted on and approved by the membership present at the Annual General Meeting.  Approved positions shall be recorded and published in the By-laws of the organization.

b.       The amount of the stipends shall be determined by the Executive Board.  Stipends shall be reasonable and appropriate and in accordance with the current financial status of the organization.

c.       The Audit Committee will review stipend amounts annually.

d.       The Journal Editor and Webmaster shall receive stipends.

Rationale:

Due to the changing needs of both the organization and the specialized expertise required for the Webmaster and Journal Editor positions, allowing the executive board to set the stipend amount to reflect the current job will permit the flexibility needed to match compensation with needs.


Proposal #2 - Proposed September 2019. To be voted on at Annual General Meeting March, 2020
Proposed by Dave Barney

ARTICLE III MEETINGS

SECTION 1 Annual General Meeting:

a. The time and site of the Annual General Meeting of the Association shall be established at least one year in advance, and unless voted otherwise by virtue of a quorum of the voting membership present at the Annual General Meeting, shall be held at the time and site of the Men’s NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships in odd numbered years and the Women’s NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships in even numbered years.

Rationale:   For a few years now, NISCA has seemingly been toying with the idea of subscribing to this proposal but only in an exploratory way, i.e. Greensboro, North Carolina in 2016 and Austin, Texas in 2019.  The time has come, I think, for NISCA to fully recognize the distaff side of our constituency by voting to alter their traditional annual meeting format to include regular attendance at the NCAA Division I  Women’s national meet beginning in 2022 and continuing to alternate between Women’s and Men’s meets yearly after that date.
