Annual Meeting Expenses - Send Carroll a note regarding what you think you'll spend for the Annual Meeting. Officers will get reimbursed. The remainder of the committee's Annual Meeting budget will be used to assist others with these Annual Meeting expenses.

Carroll will begin working on a 2011 budget. Currently, the MTF Committee is doing well financially. Stephen mentioned a financial loss at a meet, and asked the committee to consider assisting with this problem. Carroll asked Stephen to send him some info on this.

The "Forever Fast" marketing film is finished. Now we enter Phase II. There will be a "Train the Trainer" session to help get this film rolled out. National is VERY happy with what they've seen. $12,000 has been awarded to help with the expenses related to this rollout.

Anti-Doping Criteria 2011 - Stephen will form a committee and they will work on defining their function. Testing will start at the 2011 National Masters Outdoor T&F Meet.

Permanent WMA Delegates - resolution will be discussed at the Annual Meeting.

MTF/MLDR Athlete of the Year Selection Process - The National management wants to allow just one Masters AOY, but obviously MTF & MLDR each have their own AOY. Not sure how this is going to get worked out. It will be discussed at the Annual Meeting.

Invitational Program Review - Mark Cleary will discuss this at the Annual Meeting.

Clinic Model - Robert Thomas will discuss this at the Annual Meeting.

New Business

Website - Jeff Brower will discuss this at the Annual Meeting.

Record Chair Response Review - Gary will discuss this at the Annual Meeting.

Team Hotel for World Meets - Discussed having a place where many USA athletes may stay and have a place for the team to gather. Gary has worked on this quite a bit. The Doubletree Hotel has responded. A shuttle will go to all the venues from many hotels during the WMA meet. Based on previous WMA meets in the USA, it is probable that the USA alone will have over 2000 athletes. The MTF Committee is also considering a team massage therapist.

National Meet Results - handling of foreigners - Games Committee will submit 2 proposals during the Annual Meeting.

MTF will have a table at the Jesse Owens banquet.

Next Conference Call will be after the Annual Meeting, most likely in 2011.

9:03 CST - Meeting adjourned.
