    News and updates from Governing Council via USFS: http://www.usfsa.org/shell.asp?sid=48049
    On Friday:
    The Governing Council took the following actions pertaining to the U.S. Figure Skating bylaws and articles of incorporation:

    1. Withdrew Exhibit A, which would have amended the number of votes required to pass an amendment to the articles of incorporation.
    2. Adopted Exhibit B, which gives honorary, ex-officio and additional members, committee chairs and representatives from other organizations the right to speak at select meetings of U.S. Figure Skating.
    3. Adopted Exhibit C, which changes the process for a new club to become a full member club.
    4. Did not adopt Exhibit D, which would have changed the format and frequency of Governing Council meetings and rule changes.
    5. Adopted Exhibit E, which uses a rotation to determine the non-voting athlete member of the Board of Directors each season so that, going forward, no discipline (ice dancing, pairs, singles or synchronized skating) will be represented by the non-voting member in two consecutive years.
    6. Adopted Exhibit F, which moves the full definition of "athlete" into the U.S. Figure Skating bylaws.
    7. Adopted Exhibit G, which clarifies the effect of filling a vacancy on the term limits of said director.

    Sylvia - When does all the above information designated by 3-digit group numbers get spelled out in English for all USFSA members and the general public?
    There is nothing more captivating in this world than a woman's form gracing the ice in skating boots. It's simply sensational!

    All of this information is currently available to U.S. Figure Skating members via the Members Only site (click on the Governing Council link).
    "I miss footwork that has any kind of a discernible pattern. The goal of a step sequence should not be for a skater to show the same ice coverage as a Zamboni and take about as much time as an ice resurface. " ~ Zemgirl, reflecting on a pre-IJS straight line sequence

    The Combined Report of Action PDF document eventually should be published online on the USFS site -- it usually takes about a week or two after the Governing Council meeting concludes.
