2. Election Finalization points – NC is the only contested region at this time and a full slate of officers has been nominated for 2023. UPDATE POST MEETING: NW will also have an election.

3. IMAC document changes prior to Jan 1 – IMAC documents, i.e.: IMAC Contest Standards, IRPS Points Series, Senior Points Series, CD Contest Check List, Novice Class Document, Novice Class Invite Flyer, Known/Unknown/Freestyle Score Sheets. These will be checked for any updates needed prior to January 1st, 2023. Also, Rick Crow will investigate with AMA to change the rules surrounding the 10% rule and the conflicting lines in current rules related to this issue.

4. General Discussion – We have a flyer developed for the IJS in 2023. Also, electronic scoring has been updated and appears to be working well. We will continue to develop documentation and tutorial videos to be distributed. Toby and JT are still working on this in tandem with development and beta testing.
