Title: Annual General Meeting starts December 14th
Post by: ta0 on November 24, 2017, 10:58:23 PM
Hi all ITSA members

The annual ITSA general (virtual) meeting will take place December 14th to 21st.
The reason of the dates is that I'll be traveling the first 2 weeks of December (visiting family in Uruguay) and we don't want it to coincide with the holidays. Notice that it will be from Thursday to Thursday, instead of between two weekends.

This year we have elections of all directors (as it happens every two years). If you want to be a director, now is the time to throw your hat.
There will be discussions about worlds and US nats. Should we go to Shanghai? Jim is of the idea of having worlds every two years and in the odd years just have a top festival. The US members will be able to vote if we have nats in Miamisburg in 2018 or if we want to have them together with the US yo-yo contest.

As on previous years, I will open a special board inside the forum with access only to ITSA members so we can have the discussions and the voting.

I am dealing with some work and family issues and I've not been able to set this up yet. I'll try to do it tonight. I'm sorry for the delay.

This is always a busy time of year, hard to find the time.  Hope your family is ok.

It could be that you have them collapsed. Do you see a heading called ITSA Official Meetings with a + on the left? Then click on the + to expand it so you can see the sub-boards. Anyway, the direct link is:

One day left on the 2017 annual general meeting! (we started late and by the by-laws the election of directors has to last 72 hours).

If you are not an ITSA member but are considering becoming one, by doing so today you could add your name those who said "Present!" and also vote for the directors.
It would be valid for all 2018, you get an embroidered patch, and some other perks. Paypal $10 to:
 treasurer(AT)spintops.org
and I'll try to send you your membership card in time to put under the Christmas tree!  :)
