Update 7/19/17

Our next board meeting will be Thur 8/3/17 at 2pm.

Reminder that USAG/NAWGJ membership renewals are due 7/31/17. Also, make sure you check your background and safety expiration dates.

A new course that will soon be required is the Safe Sport U302 Recognizing and Responding to abuse. Current members can access the course free of charge and it will be a membership requirement in the future. They do not have the exact date of when they will happen so the recommendation is to complete it asap. https://usagym.org/pages/education/courses/U302/

L10+ rated judges should have rcvd the Regional availability form today from me via email. These forms are due 8/1/17. Please let me know if you have any questions.

We will be scheduling a fall clinic and will forward the details soon. If you have any input or suggestions, shoot me a text or email!

Important Info

Reminder that NAWGJ and USAG dues must be renewed by 7/31/16. Also, check your background and safety renewal dates. Once you’ve renewed log on to the NAWGJ.org site and update any info that has changed.
**Clinic** We will be holding a compulsory and xcel clinic Fri 8/19 6-9pm and Sat 8/20 9am – 3pm with Jill Preston.  You will be able to earn CPE hours for both days.

**URGENT** Please go into GymJas ASAP to update your contact & rating information along with your availability through March 2017. Some clubs are still updating their dates so please put availability for every weekend regardless of whether a meet is currently listed. We would like to get Fall and Optional assigning complete as soon as possible so please get your availability completed no later than Friday 8/5/16.
**Fall Judges Cup** Save the date for our Judges Cup fundraiser meet to be held Nov 18-19, 2016. We are still securing a location but will be running levels 2-5 and xcel.

**NCAA** College availability will be entered August 25 through September 25. Assigning begins October 3.

**Natl Judges Cup** location will be Virginia Beach to be held January 6-8, 2017.

**Testing** after all of the rumors that have been floating around, everyone will be re-testing. Testing for the new quadrennium has been postponed to 2018. NAWGJ national symposium will hopefully be held early enough in 2018 to be a useful test prep. More info to come.

I will hold another test late September beginning of October levels 4-10. Please contact Heather Carmody and let her know if you are interested in testing up/retesting at this time.

Our next NAWGJ Utah board meeting will be Sunday 8/7/16. Please call or email Heather with any questions!
