Business meeting: President Rick Creed welcomed everyone and introduced the additional elected officers Richard Tavernaro (North Cobb) Vice President, Terry Blish (Marist) Secretary/Treasurer, and Pete Higgins (Westminster) Training Director.
Treasurer's Report: Terry Blish gave the Treasurer's report.
Old business: A discussion of the State Meet was held.
New business: As a follow-up on the State Meet discussion, it was decided that a better scheduling of events for the 2005-2006 State Meet would be to have the Diving for both 5A and 1-4A schools held on Wednesday so as to not mix the diving and swimming for either meet on the same day. It was voted to ask for a change in the false start procedure. It is our wish to not recall the athletes if a false start occurs and to make any disqualifying decisions at the conclusion of the race. Dual confirmation will still be required for a disqualification.
Election of President, Secretary-Treasurer and Vice-President: Richard Tavernaro (North Cobb) was elected President and Terry Blish (Marist) was reelected to serve another term as our Secretary-Treasurer. Since Richard Tavernaro served as our Vice-President, his move to become President left the position of Vice-President open. A special election was held for the position of Vice-President and Jim Reason (Duluth) was selected as our new Vice-President. Congratulations to all three of these outstanding coaches and leaders.
High Scoring Teams: The high scoring teams in the A-AA-AAA-AAAA 2004 State Meet were announced and they received the GHSSCA plaques for their accomplishment.
