- Bache provided a written Treasurer's report. The checking account balance is $12,546.61, while the certificates of deposit were another $16,000. Bache said that the decrease from last month was due to expenses for the Junior Olympics meet, and not yet receiving a report and fees from the office.
- Nanista reported that the Association Track & Field Championships went well. The San Diego Track Club and Road Runner Sports provided $2,000 and volunteer help. According to Skip Stolley, the USATF online entry system is now available for Association Championships, and will be used next year. This ensures USATF membership for registration.

- Shirley reported that total registration was 1488, up 30 from last year at the same time.
- Hunt distributed guidelines for the website. He stated that the bylaws and old minutes need to be restored. When he returns from the National Championships he will take on responsibility for updates and move in a forward direction.
- Hunt also distributed guidelines for the Annual Awards Banquet and solicited suggestions from Board members on the guidelines.

- The Board discussed the possibility of conducting a Level I Coaching Clinic, possibly in January. Nanista will research the subject.
- Under Good and Welfare, the President suggested that the Board needed some tighter controls over approving and signing contracts for renting facilities and partnering on meets, so that it was clear what the Association commitments and liabilities are. There should also be a central repository for those contracts. Beltz will draft a proposal.
- The meeting adjourned at 7:55 p.m.
