4. New Business


  a. Proposed rulebook changes include the original wording from the rulebook.  The number is from the original list of proposed changes.


5) Article VIII



Any expenses (travel, postage, phone, etc) made by a Vice President while performing duties

within his/her region may be reimbursed upon submitting an itemized statement for approval, with

receipts attached, to the Treasurer. If the Treasurer feels the expenses are inappropriate, he/she

will submit them to the President for Board consideration.


Proposed change.  Remove ‘in’ from ‘inappropriate’. 


This means that board must approve all VP expenses.


6)    Article IX – 7.



Expenses shall be paid to the Secretary/Treasurer and President to travel to Board Meetings and State

Tournaments. Transportation shall be paid at $0.30 per mile. The President and Secretary shall be

furnished lodging at the tournament headquarters at FAA expense. Other Board members may be paid

$0.30 per mile transportation to FAA Board Meetings.


Proposed change.  Add wording from Article VIII.5.k to end of paragraph.


upon submitting an itemized statement for approval, with

receipts attached, to the Treasurer. If the Treasurer feels the expenses are appropriate, he/she

will submit them to the President for Board consideration.



16) Article XV


7. Guests are welcome at FAA Championships. Guests will pay full registration fees. Guests will shoot

for no award. A guest is defined as an out of state NFAA or NAA archer, an out of country

IFAA or FITA archer, or an NAA member in Florida who has not joined the Florida Archery Association


Proposed change.  Add a section 8 saying that NAA members residing in Florida will pay the full portion of the FAA dues prior to shooting.  Remove the NAA member in Florida sentence from 7.


17) Article XV



There shall be double registration allowed only at the Indoor Championship tournaments


Proposed change.  Add ‘FITA or Target’ after Indoor.   We have interest in double registering for the State Target.



1) Article XXIII



A nominee must be a resident of Florida. He/she must have been a member of the FAA and the NFAA

for at least three years.


Proposed change.  Resident of Florida and a member of FAA at the time Hall of Fame is being considered for. 

Proposed change:  Replace ‘the NFAA’ with ‘the NFAA or NAA’.


This paragraph was here so non-Florida people are not placed in the Hall of Fame like Easton, Gibbs or Jennings or any big archery name that does not reside in the state of Florida.  I do not feel that an archer has to keep living in Florida to be considered for the Hall of Fame if they did something to warrant consideration in the past.


2) – 4) Article XXVII



Applicants for the FAA Scholarship Award must be under 21 years of age and must have completed

the 11th year of high school. An applicant must be a Florida resident and must have been a member of

FAA for at least one year prior to the application.


Proposed change one year to three years.  I believe this has already been done and not updated on my copy of the Rulebook. 


Proposed change.  Add ‘and not been awarded an FAA scholarship in the past’ after the words ‘high school’.


6.  I feel we need more points for archery related activities.  Currently only 15 of the 110 points possible are for archery related activities and that seems really low to me.


Proposed change.  Remove e.1 and lower that section by the 10 points.  Add a new section


f.  Archery activities (55 points) with four categories. 

1. State Tournaments attended in past two years (1 point each for a max of 20 points). 

2. State Tournaments won in past two years (2 points each for a max of 10 points). 

3.  State Records set in past two years  (3 points each for a max of 15 points). 

4.  Instructor Certificates and archery instruction (10 points).

b.  Add 2 new classes at the Unmarked 3-D.  Male and Female Marked.  No breakout by age or style.  Archers shooting marked to be grouped together.  To have their own range-finder and not to mention the yardage where it can be overheard by unmarked archers.


            c. Review Bids for hosting, 2015 FAA Tournaments, vote on locations and



            d. Review election results, if any for , Pres. NFAA Dir, North VP, and South



5. NAA Report


6. NFAA Report  


The meeting will be held at the 2014 FAA Field tournament site at approximately 4:30 pm. If you are unable to attend the meeting, please send input/comments, to Bob Jones.. Take care and drive safely.                                                               


                                                                                            Bob Jones   FAA President
