The 2020 Annual Meeting took place via Zoom on July 18. Highlights of the Meeting

9-10AM - Open Forum/ WSO Unified Schedule - open to all for Q&A with WSO board & provide input for 2020-21 season/schedule. In addition to current board members and candidates, the meeting was attended by quite a few coaches & regional tournament representatives. Primary points of discussion:

  • 2020-21 Tournament Type. Based on tournament options provided by national Science Olympiad (see https://www.soinc.org/play/tournaments for different options; click on flowchart link for info guiding the board). 
  • While there are many details to be worked out, the board identified that - most likely - all regionals in the state will follow guidelines for Satellite tournaments, with possibility to have some [build] events at a single location in that region.  
  •  With the same events from 2019-20 going into 2020-21, we reviewed the 2019-20 WSO Unified Schedule to see if any changes needed to be made provided we are in a position to change to in-person tournaments &/or it could provide guidance in setting up Satellite schedules.   

10AM-11AM - General Board Meeting - open to all. WSO year-end reports and announcement of election results.

  • Chair Nick Stephens provided a summary of the 2019-20 year and outlined prospects for 2020-21. See meeting minutes for details.
