The PVUA Constitution and By-Laws were brought back to the floor.  District 11 brought up the fact that the State DA document for the creation of the PVUA states that the PVUA finances are to be handled by the State DA Association and that the PVUA is under the supervision of the State DA Association.  The proposed PVUA Constitution and By-Laws would make the organization independent and manage their own finances working only in a collaborative manner with the State DA Association.  Approval of the proposed Constitution and By-Laws would go against the State DA Association policy.  Barry Wright, member of the PVUA Tournament Committee, spoke on behalf of the PVUA requesting approval of control of their finances.  Moved by District 17 to table the issue until the next meeting.  Second by District 11.  Motion passed.
