The insurance committee is working with our agent to list all regions as additional insureds under our new policy.

Discussion was had on the New Member mailing with the idea of saving money. Dropping the Handbook from the initial new member mailing is a significant saving on postage. A preference for an entirely electronic welcome packet was expressed and discussed.

Fleche proof of passage options were discussed in light of the fact that the ACP says photos and ATMS are OK for Fleche and BRM proof of passage. MOTION: Allow Fleche and Trace teams to design routes that use photo or ATMs as proof of passage at the discretion of the event organizer.

The meeting was adjourned at 1855 PDT.
