Member Services – Wendy Goldstein informed the board that about $40,000 of delinquencies have cleared prior to the start of tryouts and she expects more families to clear in the weeks ahead. Wendy Goldstein advised the presidents to inform their coaches and volunteers that they should re-submit to the CAHA screening. There are about 30,000 applicants whose screening will expire September 1, 2009. This year there is no grace period and coaches and managers must have submitted to the screening process and appear on the compliance list before they can be rostered on a team.
