FIVE CANDIDATES SLATED FOR USBC BOARD ELECTION, ONE LEGISLATIVE PROPOSAL TO BE DECIDED

The United States Bowling Congress Nominating Committee has slated five candidates for election to the USBC Board of Directors, and delegates also will vote on one legislative proposal at the 2022 USBC Convention and Annual Meeting.

The 2022 USBC Convention will take place April 25-28 at The Orleans in Las Vegas, with the Annual Meeting legislative sessions to take place on the final day.

Delegates will vote to fill three open positions on the USBC Board of Directors. Current USBC President Melissa McDaniel is one of the five candidates slated, along with incumbents Anthony Colangelo and Bo Goergen. McDaniel was elected president by the board in 2020 and will soon term out as a member of the youth committee. She is seeking election by the delegates.

The USBC Nominating Committee, which may slate up to two candidates for each opening, set a slate of five candidates:
* Brandon Bowman, Mukilteo, Washington
* Anthony Colangelo, Meridian, Idaho
* Bo Goergen, Sanford, Michigan
* Melissa McDaniel, Raleigh, North Carolina
* Cheryl Younger, Leavenworth, Kansas

Additional candidates for the USBC Board of Directors may run from the floor, provided they give notice of their candidacy to the committee by March 28, 2022.

There is one proposed amendment to be voted on by delegates at the USBC Annual Meeting. It is a bylaw proposal to allow remote electronic voting for future USBC Annual Meetings. Proposals to amend USBC bylaws require a two-thirds majority vote for adoption.

USBC BOARD APPROVES RESOLUTIONS TO MAINTAIN PRE-PANDEMIC DELEGATE COUNTS FOR ANNUAL MEETINGS   

The USBC Board of Directors approved two resolutions allowing delegate representation for annual association meetings to be based on membership from the pre-pandemic 2018-2019 season.

The first resolution for the 2022 USBC Annual Meeting maintains historical representation across the country by using membership totals from the 2018-2019 season for delegate counts. Voting at the annual meeting will take place on Thursday, April 28, 2022.

The second resolution allows USBC state associations the option to use either 2018-2019 or 2020-2021 membership totals to determine delegate counts at their annual meeting.
