CLUB DIRECTORS CONFERENCE CALL INVITATION

Club Directors,
We have used the fall Junior Director’s Meeting as a way to get information to your clubs and get input for SRVA Board considerations.  We have heard that since this meeting is not in the heat of the season, it does not always lend itself well to getting and giving feedback.  So in an attempt to better serve the Junior community, we are planning on having periodic online meetings.  The first online meeting will be on January 23, 2019 at 8:00 pm EST.  This online conference will be audio with screen share so we can demonstrate online features as needed.  The duration is limited to 40 minutes.  This time has been selected to follow normal dinner time even thought it may conflict with some club practices.  If you have a better suggestion for the time that would benefit all clubs, please let us know.  Below is the general agenda for this first meeting and the information for joining the session.
Agenda – Registration for SRVA 18 Bid and Regional Championships,  How did the 5 day tryout policy work for you and your club?, and Time for Questions and Comments.
To join this meeting:
Keith Weller is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
