- There is a USA vs. Canada Masters XC race. Can we do this for non-masters events?
- Should we field a team for Pan Am XC due to travel concerns for El Salvador? USATF Indoors is going on at the same time, so there isn’t proper security going to El Salvador. Similar situation in 2007. Had extra security sent. No junior women. If we don’t go, does the event not happen? Why is the US not involved in picking a safe event space?
- (Updated from the AAC: There was a motion by AAC Chair Jeff Porter at the board meeting at the closing session to table this decision until we hear a report back from a Canadian delegate that is doing an assessment of the safety of the location this meet will be held. Athlete security is of utmost importance, but we also want to ensure these athletes have an opportunity to compete if at all possible).
