Brewster, NY – The New York State USBC will return to an in-person meeting this year with their Annual Convention and Hall of Fame Dinner slated for June 11, 2022, at the Double Tree by Hilton in Utica, NY.
Delegates will be welcomed that morning as the normal kick off festivities begin. The Annual Meeting is scheduled to begin at 12:00 PM. Attendees will receive financial, and committee reports from the NYS USBC Board of Directors and will vote on proposed legislation and for candidates to the NYS USBC Board of Directors.
The NYS USBC Board of Directors has proposed two amendments to the state association’s bylaws, based on mandatory changes from USBC. The first is a proposal to change the time limit for nomination from the floor for applicants for the state board. The proposed change would require resumes to be received, no later than seven days prior to the start of the annual meeting.
Amendment two, deals with the elimination of the Youth Director Category by the USBC. Our current by-laws stated we need 25 adult delegate and 15 youth delegates for a Quorum. Proposed change would set the Quorum at 40 delegates.
These changes are coming from amendments passed at the USBC National Convention last April, which will take effect this year. A full description of the proposed changes can be found by clicking here.
Four board members and one officer will be up for re-election this year. These include Liz DeHart of Staten Island who is running for Vice-President. Board members up for re-election are Jayu Kulkarni from Lake Ronkonkoma, Stephen Fawcett from Schenectady, Barry Vee of Rochester and Beth O’Brien of Cheektowaga. The bios for the board member can be found by clicking here.
Our Hall of Fame dinner will begin at 7:15 PM with a cocktail hour beginning at 6:10 PM. Six bowlers will be honored this year, Cheektowaga’s Susan “Sue” Jeziorski and Rochester’s William “Bill” Hasiotis will be inducted into the Hall of Fame for Superior Performance. Nelson Chase from Hudson Falls and Benjamin “Ben” Amberge from Vestal will be inducted into the Hall of Fame for Superior Performance.
