Board of Directors meet on Dec. 11, and approve by-law changes and other business



USA Wrestling's Board of Directors held a meeting via conference call on Monday, December 11. The meeting was chaired by USA Wrestling President Jim Ravannack of Metairie, La.

The Board approved changes to the organization's by-laws concerning its Board of Directors meetings.

The Board members changed to by-laws to read: "The Board of Directors shall meet at least once annually."

Previously, the by-laws indicated that the Board of Directors would meet at least twice annually. The intent of the change was to eliminate the first Board of Directors meeting for a fiscal year for organizational efficiency.

In addition, the Board approved the following addition to the by-laws: "The Executive Committee will meet in person on at least one occasion during the fiscal year."

The intent of this change is to add an in-person meeting of the Executive Committee, replacing a Board of Directors meeting for a fiscal year, in order to ensure proper oversight and communications among those who govern the organization.

Other changes were made to the wording in other sections of the by-laws, to reflect that there would be one Board of Directors meeting held each year.

In other business, the Board approved the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials procedures for all three styles of Olympic wrestling (men's freestyle, men's Greco-Roman and women's freestyle). These documents will be forwarded to the U.S. Olympic Committee for final approval.

The Board also approved the medical assignments for USA Wrestling tours during the 2006-07 season, as well as the women's coach selections for the 2006-07 season. The official announcement on all coaching and medical assignments will be made after those selected notify USA Wrestling if they will accept their assignments.
