RULES NEWSLETTER - July 27, 2017
As this is our last newsletter for July, we will cover
league finances. Bonding insurance is a membership benefit your league
receives by submitting the league certification application, membership
application cards and payment of membership dues. See what you must know
If you missed any of the previous three newsletters, you
missed information about league officer duties, contracts and meetings, and
adopting league rules. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for
copies and don’t forget to share with other officers and league members!
This Week's Hot Topics
Click here to
learn what to do when it comes to league finances.
League account tools
Many banking institutions require an Employee Identification Number (EIN)
to open an account for a league. An EIN can be obtained from the Internal
Revenue Service (IRS). USBC has created a guide
to assist you in obtaining an EIN.
Using in center banking? Check out the In
Center Banking Agreement.
For the Treasurer – Be sure to deposit league funds
within seven (7) days.
For the President – Be sure to do the math necessary
to determine what should be in the league account when verifying monthly.
Don’t forget…next week starts the new season and
on Thursday, Aug. 3, you will receive the season opener of Rules Extra!
Thereafter, Rules Extra will be delivered to your inbox on the first
Thursday of the month.
Do your bowlers know… how to contact you as
officers? Why not give each bowler a card with the officers’ contact
Certified averages for tournaments – another membership
League officers play an important role in assuring tournament managers have
the right information. By submitting bowlers’ averages after a league
concludes, you help tournament managers get a snapshot of each bowler and
to see if the bowler has a consistent average, compared to past seasons.
The certified average helps ensure bowlers are placed in proper divisions.
Thanks for turning in averages at the end of each season!
