Re:       Virginia Division Election Announcement

Date:   May 15th, 2019

The Virginia Division of USA Fencing, LLC. would like to announce that our Annual Division meeting will be held on Saturday, June 15, 2019, at the NOVA Fencing Club, at the conclusion of fencing for that day. 

The agenda for that meeting will be as follows:

  • Reports of the Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and any other Divisional Officers (if any)
  • Proposed amendments to the By-Laws
  • Election of Officers, new Board Members
  • Unfinished business
  • New business

Regarding amendments/changes to the By-Laws: A number of minor changes have been proposed by me to the Board and to the Division.  These changes are requested more or less to update the document to support changes that have occurred at USA Fencing and within our Division.  A list of these proposed changes has been posted to the VA Division website (www.va-usfa.com) for review prior to the meeting and vote.

Regarding the Election of Officers:  At this writing, I am happy to tell you that each of our existing officers wishes to continue to remain on the Board.

The Board has been notified that Scott Farber of Cardinal Fencing Academy has expressed interest to join our board as a Board Member at Large.  His nomination was seconded by Ilya Lobanenkov.  Scott is running for a position that is currently open.

The NOVA Fencing Club is located at 3431 Carlin Springs Rd; Suite E, Falls Church, VA 22041.  The Top of the Hill Youth and Veteran Tournament’s final event start time is 12:45pm, with an estimated end time around 4:30-5:00PM.  We will begin the meeting at the end of fencing and awards, but not before 5PM.

If you wish to take place in our elections but cannot make our meeting on the 15th, you may wish to assign your vote, or cast your votes in advance using our VA Division Election Proxy Form.  This form can be found here (on the VA Division website).  Only VA Division members (All levels of USA Fencing membership may vote EXCLUDING Non-Competitive and Foreign Memberships.) We will confirm all in person and proxy voters at our elections or prior.

If you have any questions about any of the above, do not hesitate to write to me @ rweiss1@yahoo.com, or any of our officers. Officers email addresses are on our website under About Us.  Look forward to seeing you there!
