Board of Commissioners  (FC) Meeting  July 14th, 2015
As previously announced the Board of Commissioners (Field Commissioners) Meeting is scheduled for July 14th,  starting at 7:00 PM at Fuddruckers (I-75 and Miller Road).  All areas  MUST  have representation at this meeting in person from your area or by Proxy transferred to someone else or MMRFL Executive Board. 

Agenda for this meeting Includes the following:

Coaches,  Board Members, and other Volunteers Must Complete Concussion Training  before participating or volunteering in MMRFL
All Coaches ( Football and Cheer), Attendants 16 or over, Board Members and other regular Volunteers that interface with participants must complete CDC approved concussion training before they may coach or volunteer in MMRFL Areas.  This is Michigan State LAW …. NO EXCEPTIONS. 

Certification must be through CDC approved course and must have been been completed since January 1st, 2015, for 2015 MMRFL season.  Both Area Board and MMRFL must have copy of certification certificate from training website with coaches name clearly printed on it. 

The CDC Concussion training is free of charge online at  thsi link      http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/Training/index.html

In the past some people have had a problem with certificate printing without coaches name on it using the normal print function on the website.    It is recommended that, once you have successfully completed the course, you do a screen print of the certificate off of your computer and/or save it to a PDF file before clicking on the print button.    A certificate without  a name is useless and you will have to take the course again because there is no way to reprint it from site.
