The Winter Executive Board meeting was held on December 13-15 in Bloomington at the Courtyard Marriott. This meeting was originally scheduled for December 6-8 and was rescheduled due to inclement weather.  Indiana ASA appreciates all the members of the Executive Board and sub-committees, and the umpire staff who spent their personal time on a weekend to improve the Indiana ASA program.
