The below four small changes to the “VA Division” By-Laws have been proposed :
From: BY-LAWS: VIRGINIA DIVISION OF US FENCING, INC.
To: BY-LAWS: VIRGINIA DIVISION OF USA FENCING, LLC.
Reason: The actual incorporated name of the VA Division is “Virginia Division of USA Fencing, LLC.”
From: ARTICLE I The Virginia Division of US Fencing, Inc., (“the Division”)
To: ARTICLE I The Virginia Division of USA Fencing, LLC., (“the Division”)
Reason: Same as above #1.
DELETE ARTICLE V “The Divisional Representatives on the Sectional Executive Committee shall be the Divisional Chairman and one other divisional executive committee member, who shall be designated by the chairman.”
Reason: USA Fencing no longer recognizes “Sections”. Irrelevant
4. DELETE ARTICLE IX “The Divisional Championships shall be CLOSED unless specified otherwise in a general meeting. The qualifiers to the National Championships shall be the same as the Championships, provided it is in conformity with the requirements of the USFA.”
Reason: The VA Division Championship Tournament is no longer a qualifier to a Summer National Championship event. Irrelevant.
Voting on these changes will occur at the VA Division Annual Meeting and Elections to be held at NOVA Fencing Club on June 15, 2019 at the completion of fencing for that day (Roughly 5pm).
