Reminder: Board of Directors meeting

Guilford Youth Lacrosse Families,


This is a reminder that there is a Board of Directors meeting tomorrow at the Community Center 7:30pm.


Dear GYLA Families,
Paul Farren asked me to forward this email to all GYLA families:
TO:  GYLA Lacrosse Families, Players, Coaches, Referees, Guilford Parks & Rec, Fans, Sponsors, and Vendors
The recently elected Executive Board Officers of the Gulford Youth Lacrosse Association, Inc., are listed below:
            President:         Paul Farren (;
            Vice-President:  Steve Victor (
            Treasurer:         TBD (
            Secretary:         Bob Swan (
            Ombudsman/CONNY Representative:    Steve Jewett (
At the first Board/General Membership Meeting, to be held at the Community Center on Thursday, September 22nd, at 7:30 p.m. , nominations for Treasuer will be taken and an election will immediatley follow.  To date, the only individual nominated for this position is Andrea Ring.  If elected, Andrea will be assisted by her son Michael, a Senior majoring in business and accounting at New England College, who will graduate this December.
In addition to overseeing the election of a new Treasurer, the Executive Board will consider the appointment of interested individuals to the following positions:  Boys Coordinator, Girls Coordinator, Equipment Manager, and Master Game and Referee Scheduler.  Once appointed, this group of individuals will constitute the Appointed Board and serve in accordance with our GYLA By-Laws.
Finally, interested volunteers will be considered for appointment to the following positions:  Tournaments Director, Fundraising Overseer, Parks & Rec and Standing Fields Liaison, Communications Director, Public Relations Director, Capital Projects Coordinator, Special Events Coordinator, Apparel Manager, Concession Manager, and other positions TBD.
Anyone having interest in taking on a position with the Appointed Board or as a volunteer for any other position, please do not hesitate to email me before Thursday’s meeting.
In light of the new Player Segmentation Policy adopted recently by US Lacrosse and projected to be amended by CONNY, our local governing body, I would strongly urge you to read carefully the email forwarded to me by Andrew Barnard, CONNY President, and the two attachments and two documents referenced in his email.  Hopefully, we will have a very informed and productive discussion at our meeting with respect to player segmentation this coming season, so Steve Jewett, our CONNY Liaison, and I, as GYLA President and CONNY Assistant Vice-President for Competition, will be able to report on GYLA’s position in this regard at the CONNY meeting to be held on September 27th.
I would respecfully encourage everyone to attend this Thursday’s meeting, so we will be able to hit the ground running this year, exploring new ideas and recruiting new volunteers to make Guilford Youth Lacrosse the best youth athetics program in town.

Take the time to read about our SPONSOR

Hedgeye are pioneers in the independent investment research business, a new sector that’s still greatly misunderstood. Hedgeye was started with nothing more than an idea and a laptop back in 2008. Today, Hedgeye continues to lead by breaking ground in new markets: first, they established themselves as the must-have source for research for the top money managers in the industry. At the same time, they launched that same research out into the public market, making their investment ideas available to individual investors and smaller professional firms at the same time that it is sent to the largest firms in the financial marketplace.

Hedgeye was founded on the principles of Transparency, Accountability, and Trust – three things that were hard to come on Wall Street. Hedgeye is the home of the very best in uncompromised, unconflicted investment research.
