2021 Annual General Meeting Recap

The 2021 SAY Annual General Meeting was held July 16-17th in Cincinnati, Ohio at the Embassy Suites by Hilton RiverCenter. The two-day event saw a meeting of the membership featuring SAY members from all around the country.

Following a meeting from SNRRC (SAY National Referee and Rules Committee), the AGM commenced on Friday night, with attendees joining digitally and in-person. National Board of Directors President Dave Humphrey and Executive Director Doug Wood delivered reports regarding the activities and state of SAY Soccer.
 
The 2021 National Board of Directors election saw Dave Humphrey (WCSA) elected to an At-Large Director position, Jaimee Branson (WCSA) elected to an At-Large and Scotty Kober (SFYS) elected to the Region 1 Director role. SAY Soccer would like to recognize outgoing Director Allan Biddle for his years of dedicated service on a national level. Allan has been a fantastic representative for SAY Soccer and we will miss him greatly.
 
Immediately following the AGM session, three long-serving volunteers were honored with induction to the Roland Bedard National Hall of Fame. The SAY National Office would once again like to thank Burt McIntyre, Charlie Keaney, and John Hines for their many years of service to the SAY organization. These gentlemen represent a collective 100 plus years of professionalism, experience, and dedication to the SAY organization.
 
Also recognized at the AGM were SAY National staff, who received the Silver Ball Award for going above and beyond for SAY Soccer during a very challenging year. The recipients were Executive Director Doug Wood, Operations Director Brian Begley, and Staff Accountant Ann Randolph.
 
Saturday’s schedule featured a roundtable breakfast session, presentations from national partners, and administrative sessions from SAY staff and board members. After a lunch break, the newly elected National Board of Directors met for the first time and held officer elections.
