The following is a suggested protocol from the National Office to address USATF Association Annual Meetings due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Consider delaying elections until your annual meeting in 2021. If you have an officer or committee chair who decides not to continue, your by-laws and/or committee operation procedures should detail how to fill resignations. The SCA Board supports the following emergency resolution language to remedy the current situation:
Re: 2020 Annual Meeting Elections
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the SCA USATF Board of Directors voted to support the following Emergency Resolution:
WHEREAS, due to state and local mandates and emergency circumstances precipitated by the Covid-19 pandemic, SCA USATF will be unable to conduct its elections at its 2020 Annual Meeting as prescribed by its bylaws. NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the membership hereby extends the terms of all officers, board members, and other elected positions up for election at the 2020 Annual Meeting to the 2021 Annual Meeting, at which time elections shall take place for these positions. The terms of all persons elected in 2021 under this resolution shall be calculated as if they commenced at the 2020 Annual Meeting.
All SCA members 18 years and older should have received an email to vote on this resolution. We are hopeful and looking forward to hosting competitions in the near future. We value our members and look forward to serving you.
