NWAL Covid-19 Return to Competition - Recommendations
Team Dues Statement
The COVID adventure started in March of 2020 with a full board meeting (league officers and division reps) who finally voted on April 14thto cancel the 2020 season. The vote was 19 in favor of cancellation, 3 opposed, and 1 abstention. We therefore set out to attempt to get refunds from expenses where possible. Insurance is our biggest expense and while we were able to recoup some, general expenses like network services, Swimtopia, CPA, printed rule books, etc were not able to be refunded. We received no revenue in 2020 from sponsors or invitationals which is key to the NWAL budget.
Moving forward the league officers had to prepare a 2021 budget that reflected the expenses we were not able to recoup as well as reflect the refunds we did receive. The budget was presented to the full board (league officers and division reps) in the board meeting on October 27thand the division reps then had a month to discuss the proposed budget with their teams and divisions. The full board then met again on December 1stand voted to approve the budget. This budget included the current team dues that reflects a credit as a prepayment towards your 2021 dues. This prepayment represents the percentage of credit that NWAL was able to recoup from the 2020 season.
The vote on the budget and team dues was unanimous and which means all division reps approved the motion.
Please contact your division rep about the details of both board meetings from October and December.
