The next LSC Board of Director’s meeting will take place on January 22, starting at 7:45PM at Fillippi’s Pizzeria in Scripps Ranch, 9969 Mira Mesa Blvd, San Diego, CA 92131. It is open to everyone and is a great way to get to know what is going on in our LSC.

Since we are holding our meeting in a pizzeria, it is only fitting to have some pizza.  I plan on pre-ordering some pizza to be ready around 7PM.  Please come and join me for pizza and soda prior to the meeting.  Email pizza preferences to mailto:generalchair@si-swimming.org and I’ll do my best to accommodate everyone.  There will be no bell peppers on any pizza due to Sean’s allergies…

If you tried to call into the teleconference for the House of Delegates Meeting, I must apologize.  I didn’t realize that we were located in the only conference room within Qualcomm which does not have built-in microphones.  I will be setting up the teleconference for this meeting, but it is a new locale as well, so I’m hoping it goes better than last time.  The teleconference details are:

Dial-in Number: (641) 715-3580

Access Code: 126668
Online Meeting Link: join.freeconferencecall.com/kevindlee

A couple of things that can be reviewed prior to the meeting are the minutes from the previous meeting and the consent agenda for this meeting. The consent agenda contains the reports from the different committees so that we only go over the things that need discussion during the meeting. Here are links to the important documents:
