Award USCA Judge Don Yelle a Permanent Full USCA Trial/Performance License

EB Ballot #13-18

Motion: by Nathaniel Roque, Director of Judges, seconded by Michele Clubb, Secretary, to Approve a Permanent USCA Performance / Trial License for Probationary Judge Don Yelle
Background,  The USCA Judges Program requires the General Board or Executive Board to pass the motion to grant / award a USCA Judges Permanent License.  Since Don Yelle is eligible at this time the motion is presented to the Executive Board instead of waiting 6 months to the General Board Meeting, the GBM will still have the right to affirm this decision or request a new vote. 
Don Yelle as a probationary judge has exceeded his requirements and should not have to wait another 6 months to receive his Full License. 
The USCA Judges Committee recommends the approval of a Permanent Performance / Trial License for Don Yelle.   He has met and exceeded all of the requirements as a probationary judge.   Don has attended all Judges Colleges and been an active member of our Judges College Conference Calls and Reviews / Continuing Education Program. He has also volunteered his time to perform the long down judges duties and as a “bi richter” in tracking at the nationals.  He has met the required 30 trials in less than 3 years  to complete his probation.  
By all accounts based in part by email and phone calls from clubs that he has judged trials and their complements of his performance and additional followup and evaluation by the DOJ he has shown himself to be an excellent representative of USCA, a fair and correct judge with the skills and knowledge to uphold the standards of the USCA Judges Program.
