President’s Opening remarks
.In his opening remarks Jamie thanked Paul Hensley President of the CC Morris Library for itscommitment to donate $500 annually to USYCA, in addition to its initial $5000 grant to USYCAto pay for its Incorporation as a 501c.3 Non-Profit.Minutes from the previous teleconference board meeting held earlier in the year wereunanimously approved by those present.
Treasurer’s Report
Michael Thomas noted that $63,000 had been raised in the first year of USYCA operations.Jamie Harrison noted this was proof of the USYCA concept.Michael Thomas noted that $33,721 were cash donations ($22,000 from Appleseed Foundationin Rhode Island) and $24,853 materials-in-kind.Of these contributions $17,862 were spent on cricket kits for schools and $3000 for the USYCAweb site. The Appleseed grant enabled the purchase of 596 cricket kits for a considerablediscount of $33 per kit. The kit inventory was stored withou
t cost in Ed Fox’s Kansas cricket
pavilion. After purchase of all kits there was $1750 in cash at the bank.
enquired about the $10,000 United States of America Cricket Association (USACA)grant promised for 2011. It was noted that only $3000 had been disbursed with another $7000promised.
Detailed the USACA offer for a relationship with USYCA, which Jamie felt compelled todecline, resulting in the non-payment. On surveying the USYCA board there was general
agreement with Jamie’s
position vis-à-vis USACA.
USYCA’s annual $100 membership to USACA
was agreed to be appropriate in maintiaining a relationship with USACA.
enquired whether the International Cricket Council might help the USYCA directly.
responded that USYCA already has ICC encouragement and support, but because of ICCpolicy,
it won’t be
come financial.
: noted it was easy to trip over personalities at all levels of the game. Putting cricket in allthe schools is important and the wicki concept beats centralized governance in this attempt topropagate cricket.
re-iterated that USYCA strength was its decentralized propagation process focused oneducating school PE departments to the benefits of cricket. Local empowerment was the key tosuccess.
noted that paid and renewed subscriptions were evidence of success.
When is a subscription renewal recognized now that USYCA has payment capabilitythrough Pay Pal?
Noted once payment was made in any form it could be considered a subscription renewalfor USYCA purposes of membership.
noted there were roughly 40 $50 renewals of subscriptions.
A motion was proposedthat, whereas renewals are concerned, subscriptions in all forms of payment should beregarded as acceptable. Jatin seconded the motion. Board approval was unanimous.
President’s Report
Jamie noted that USACA
spate of bad press had driven sponsors
to USYCA. “We’re
now thegold standard because of follow through. We have built trust through achievement. We makeno excuses. There are no hidden agendas as we are spreading cricket for the love of the game.Passionate promotion is hard t
o stop.”
Jamie went on to remark that he did not envy USACA for
“sitting on money
while sharks churned the water.” By contrast the “people working for USYCA
have no expectation of reward or benefit, and volunteer only for the good of the game, which iswhy I believe our people to be
the best and brightest in the US.” Jamie re
-iterated his altruisticapproach would keep the
confined to their bay. Rapid growth envisaged:Stage 1: Establish school programs.Stage 2: Secure cricket in those schools.Stage 3: Hardball cricketStage 4: TournamentsStage 5: Inter-school competition.
