5)    Fred Blattspieler – Reminder about one-day licenses and annual licenses sold by on-line registration companies other than USAC
·         The only valid on-line one-day license is the one that is sold by USAC.  No other on-line registration companies have the right to sell them.  Bike Reg has been selling annual licenses, and SBO has been selling one-days.
o   Wet signatures are required for insurance purposes.
o   USAC will not honor a $10 credit towards an annual license if sold through other outlets.
o   There have been isolated instances of companies even selling annual licenses.  In those cases, USAC will not honor it as an annual license
6)    Fred Blattspieler – Reminders from Membership:
·         Workflow reminders:
o   Permit approvals: All permits should be reviewed and processed within 10 days of receipt unless more information is required of the organizer/promoter.
o   Upgrade approvals: Upgrades should be processed within 7 days of receipt unless more information is required. If the rider cannot supply supporting documentation within a reasonable length of time (15 days) the request should be denied until such time the rider can provide that documentation. 
7)    Open Discussion
