Move the annual meeting, currently held at the USIACs, to sometime during the fall, and hold it online in live chat to allow maximum participation of membership.

Rationale: Currently the meeting at USIAC is a distraction. At the 2012 meeting several coaches were disruptive and held up the competition, forcing athletes to sit and listen to political antics and infighting. This is not positive behavior at a national event and harms scores and sets the wrong message. An organization that is about the athletes must focus on the athletes. Additionally, only clubs that travel to USIAC benefit from anything they learn at the annual meeting. A virtual meeting would allow clubs not in attendance to have the same opportunity to ask questions and to hear their peers discuss merits of various subjects.
