Lebhar IMP Pairs in Memphis
Right, Linda. . . .That was the best we could do with the current lineup of NABC events. We had to choose between leaving everyone under 60 without an event to play in Sunday (and Monday, if not entering the Vandy), or leaving non-seniors over 10K MPs without sufficient platinum points to ...
BOD Journal Motions for Atlanta
Item 182-23 originated as a motion made by the Board of Governors. Not every motion is a nefarious self-indulgence by a member of the Board of Directors. :)
BOD Journal Motions for Atlanta
I can't speak for the NABC Review Committee, but the Codification requires a review of this event: For any NABC+ event with or without a set masterpoint award, whenever entry is fewer than 30 tables for three consecutive years, the ACBL Board of Directors must review continuing this event ...
The Death of 4-Session KO's
I suspect the primary culprit affecting the decline of the 4-session KO, and IMP team play more generally, is our steadily aging membership base. Look at the average age of teams entered in your next 4-session KO (I will try to do so next week at Cincinnati's Flying Pig ...
One Glaring Example of ACBL's Bloated Bureaucracy
@Michael: Consider yourself surprised and wondermented (!). The ACBL is indeed incorporated in the state of New York. A quick check to the ACBL Bylaws would have provided you with the answer. It's right up front: Section 1.1: "Name. The name of the organization is the American Contract Bridge ...
One Glaring Example of ACBL's Bloated Bureaucracy
The requirement that every Committee of the Board have at least 3 members is a function of New York governing law. See New York NPCL sec. 712(a) ("The certificate of incorporation, the by-laws, or the board may create committees of the board, each consisting of three or more directors ...
ACBL CEO: Post-Mortem
I've started or been involved with at least 6 school-based bridge clubs, and we haven't had to pay stipends for any for them. They all presented different challenges and withered on the vine for various reasons, but lack of financial support wasn't one of them.
ACBL CEO: Post-Mortem
School volunteer policies will vary greatly from state to state, district to district, and even intra-district. Generalizations about when volunteers can get into schools are almost impossible, which is part of the reason why it's difficult to implement a school bridge program that can scale on any meaningful level.
Philly NABC Board Minutes
BOD corrections to draft minutes are due April 15th. The minutes committee needs a little time to process these changes, depending on their length and complexity, so I would expect public posting sometime thereafter.
NABC event schedule
FWIW, the BOD passed a motion in San Diego requiring Board meetings to end before the start of the first NABC event (excluding the GNT and NAP Flight A events). Ostensibly, this would remove a disincentive from someone otherwise inclined to run for an ACBL Board Member position who also ...
