MINUTES OF THE 06/20/00 NET MEETING OF THE ACFI SCHOLASTIC STATE CHAMPIONSHIP COMMITTEE The net meeting of the ACFI Scholastic State Championship Committee (SSCC) was called to order by Chairman Jim Wilson at 7:15 PM on Tuesday, June 20, 2000. Participating were Robby Adamson, Jim Wilson, Ken Larsen, Jennifer Shacter, Myron Lieberman, Rachel Lieberman, Marty Schneider, and Spencer Lower. The first topic to be discussed was the issue of regional qualifiers for state scholastic championship events. Robby Adamson proposed a motion to disallow any state scholastic championship event to be held within two months of any other. Discussion indicated that 2 months was too long and that some events may not really be conflicts. Before the motion came to a vote, Marty Schneider proposed a motion that defined who sets the standards for regional qualifiers for state championship events. Discussion continued. Robby Adamson's motion, after friendly amendments accepted during discussion, was worded as follows and passed.
