Notice of Annual Meeting

Per our bylaws, this email is to serve as the official notice of the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Minnesota Water Ski Association (MWSA).  The annual meeting will be held in conjunction with our banquet and awards on Saturday, July 24, 2021 at the Chisago Lakes Town Hall.  *** PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A NEW LOCATION FOR 2021 ***

The address is:
Chisago Lakes Town Hall
12400 – 316th Street
Lindstrom, MN  55045

We anticipate the banquet will begin at approximately 7pm, but please know this time needs to be flexible to accommodate the day’s skiing and judging schedule.  All MWSA members are invited to attend the annual meeting and youth awards banquet.  Skiers registered for this weekend’s Ralph Samuelson Minnesota State Open are included in and receive one (1) ticket for the dinner banquet per person.  Additional tickets for non-skiers can be purchased on-site or at the tournament registration table for $10 per person.

Directions:  From TLE III, Turn Right on Park Trail after 2.5 miles, Turn Right on Furuby Road.  After 1.2 miles, Furuby Road becomes North Lakes Trail.  Continue 2.4 miles to 316th Street, and the Chisago Lakes Town Hall will be on your Right.

Summary of Rule Changes

The 2021 AWSA Rulebook and Summary of Rule Changes Can Be Found Here:

  1. Updates to the financial P&P's. Document started in 2000, was updated to cover outsourced book keeping, payroll, and a few other minor items. This was immediately approved for pending USOPC compliance audit. BOD will be editing again in the near future as a few other house keeping items were mentioned.
  2. Background Screen Appeal Policy. We did not have one. With background screening required of more of our membership, one was needed. It will be added to our P&P's.
  3. Safe Sport training requirement of all USA-WSWS members age 18 & older beginning in 2022. A few items of note:
    1. New / renewing members will have 30 days to complete the training. If it is not completed within 30 days members will be unable to register and compete.
    2. Safe Sport training does not apply to guest memberships.
    3. Any member turning 18 will have 30 days to complete training at their renewal at age 17 with parental consent.
    4. All SD Presidents will be asked to encourage members to complete the training in 2021, so at their 2022 renewal time it is already completed.
    5. Any member who has completed Safe Sport training for another sport, will not be required to complete it again. The new membership system will do a database query with the Center for Safe Sport. If their training certification is complete and up to date, they will meet the USA-WSWS requirement.  Only other item of note is that the new membership system is on schedule to launch in April / May time frame. Prior to going live, BOD's will be asked to join and/or renew memberships with dummy credit card numbers USA-WSWS will provide to test and provide feedback. Look for more on that soon.
