Waiver of 12 Month Continuous Membership to enter USCA/WUSV selection process for Dan Richards

EB #03-15

Motion:  by Don Yelle (New England Regional Director), seconded by Frank Phillips, Vice President, to waive the 12 month continuous membership criteria for declaring to enter for the USCA/WUSV team selection process for Dan Richards.  Dan has requested a waiver due to hardships incurred early last year.  I am presenting his request to the EB Board.

Background:  Message from Daniel Richards

My name is Daniel Richards and I am requesting a waiver for the continuous 12 month requirement for active membership status, for declaring intent to enter for the USCA/WUSV team selection process.

Due to financial and physical hardship I was unable to renew my membership due for January 2014.  On November 8, 2013 I was laid off from my employer.  On March 12, 2014, I suffered a severe right ankle sprain.  After getting back on my feet, I renewed my membership in June 2014.

I have been a member of USCA since 1989 and I still have my original membership number 00923.  I have given many years of my life supporting, training, and competing in this organization.   I have been loyal to our organization all of this time.

I respectively request that the executive board grant me the ability to participate and enter for the USCA/WUSV team selection process.

Thank you,

Dan Richards
