Procedures Manual posted

The Harrisburg Division Procedures Manual is now available on this site's Documents Page. The manual supplements the bylaws and works in conjunction with them.

The division's Executive Committee developed the manual over the past several months and emailed it for comment to all division members in January. Several suggestions were received and have been incorporated in the final version.

On June 26, the Harrisburg Division's executive committee held a meeting to discuss the upcoming Keystone State Games, the division's new bylaws and upcoming procedures manual, and other matters. The meeting minutes are posted on the division's Documents page.

The Harrisburg Division has a new set of bylaws

As planned, the Harrisburg Division sent out ballots in June asking its members to vote for or against the division's proposed new bylaws. Thirty-seven ballots were sent out; 12 were returned, all in favor of the new bylaws.
While we wish the response rate had been greater, it was sufficient, and the new bylaws are now in effect. Thank you to our 12 voters!

Annual meeting set for July 17

The Harrisburg Division's annual meeting will take place starting at 1 p.m. Sunday, July 17, at the West Shore YMCA, 410 Fallowfield Road, Camp Hill.

Earlier this year, the division sent an email to its members via the USFA head office soliciting division officer nominations for 2016-17. As none were received, the officer slate remains unchanged, as follows:

  • Chairman: Andy Nightingale
  • Vice chairman: Tim Stuhldreher
  • Secretary: April Kauffman
  • Treasurer: Dick Kirchoff

Their election will be ratified at the meeting. Other topics will include a recap of division finances, recommendations for the upcoming year, and so on. If you have a topic to add to the agenda, please send it to Andy, Tim or April.

See you there!

The Harrisburg Division is one vote away from a new set of bylaws

For some time, the Harrisburg Division has had the goal of overhauling and modernizing its bylaws. Led by division chairman Andy Nightingale, that process has taken place over the past several months. Andy's initial version has been revised in response to comments and recommendations solicited from division members, the other Executive Committee officers and the USFA head office in Colorado.

Earlier this year, USFA officials approved the final draft of the new bylaws. The remaining step to implement them is a member vote, which will be conducted by mail in coming weeks. The bylaws may be seen on this site's document page. Questions may be directed to Andy or to Tim Stuhldreher.
