I. 2010 TOP Skills changes The committee met to review and approves the final changes to the 2010 TOP Skills testing Motion Sharp Second Memmel PASSED
II. Qualification to Championships from Training Camp Verifications The committee discussed the possibility of Non National Team Members being permitted to qualify to Championships from full set verification at the Developmental and National Team Training Camps. Currently, because of their training and competition requirements, this is only allowed for current National Team Members. After discussion on this subject, the committee felt that Non National Team Members would still need to qualify to Championships through their normal methods of National Elite Qualifiers and/or Classics. There was no motion put to the committee. III. TOP 8 year olds at National Testing The committee continued discussion on the possibility of testing 8 year olds at the National TOP Testing. Steve asked the IEC members (along with the ADC Committee) to develop Skill Testing ideas to be reviewed at the February IEC meeting.
IV. Samantha Shapiro funding The committee approved funding for Samantha Shapiro at $500.00 per month for the first quarter of 2010. Motion: Brestyan Second: Sharp PASSED
