Billiard Congress of America - NEW ADDRESS!
10900 West 120th Ave.
Broomfield, CO 80021
The Billiard Congress of America conducts annual member elections for seats on its Board of Directors in accordance with its bylaws. Each elected director has many responsibilities, including assisting with financial and administrative decisions, attending meetings, participating on committees and representing their respective constituencies. Board participation has a far-reaching effect on the future of billiards in North America and the world.
Meetings: The BCA Board of Directors meets four times per year. According to the bylaws, Section 6.6, "if a Director has two unexcused absences from board meetings in the time between the annual meetings, he/she may be removed from the board. The Executive Committee shall have the sole discretion to excuse absences." The BCA pays each director a stipend to help defray travel and lodging expenses for each Board meeting. As details are confirmed, the dates and locations of all scheduled Board of Directors meetings are published online.
Committees: Directors are encouraged to serve on at least one to two committees, which are asked to meet by teleconference throughout the year to discuss pertinent issues. The current standing committees are: Executive (comprised of the officers of the BCA), Finance, Long-Range Planning, Marketing, Trade Show, Membership, Instructors, Nominating and Bylaws. Each committee is assigned a BCA staff liaison who is responsible for providing the minutes to the committee chair for review within seven days of the meeting. Any items recommended to the BCA Board of Directors should be presented as an agenda item for the board's consideration, with assistance from the staff liaison. All agenda items must be finalized and received in the BCA office no less than three weeks prior to the board meeting at which they are to be considered, so that they may be included with mailed review items which are delivered two weeks prior to any meeting.
Elections: The election process is conducted in accordance with the BCA bylaws, with approved ballots issued to qualified BCA Business Members each year. Official ballots may be returned by mail by the stated deadline, or may be hand carried and cast at the BCA Annual Membership meeting held in conjunction with each year's BCA Summit.
