What are We Voting On?
Candidates are able to nominate themselves for an office by petition to the Executive Committee. This year the Executive Committee did not receive any petitions by the July 20th deadline, so there are no additional candidates at this time.
The Division wants to congratulate all our fencers who did a wonderful job showing Long Island skill and spirit at Summer Nationals. We would also like to remind everyone that USFA memberships expire on 7/31 so please make sure you renew if you need to. (Coaches and referees, please make sure you are current on your background screenings and Safe Sport certifications too!) If you have any questions prior to the meeting, please feel free to reach out to us via our website (http://www.usfencinglongisland.com/) or by emailing our Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the meeting on 7/29 and kicking off another great year of fencing on Long Island!
