Dues Increase Passes at USBC Convention

by Bob Johnson 0

ABE_3279.jpgToday's legislative session at the USBC Convention at The Orleans in Las Vegas saw the passage of a crucial dues increase proposal that was recommended for approval by the USBC Board. Bylaws Proposal No. B 3 was proposed by David P. Lewis of Mount Pleasant,. Mich., and asked that the dues ceiling be raised from $10 to $15. Its passage today marks the first dues increase in a decade.

For background on the proposal and the support it received from USBC and in particular from USBC Executive Director, Chad Murphy, go here: https://www.bowlersjournal.com/old/?p=12630

We will have more on this later here on our website, and we will have full coverage of the legislation's passage in the June issues of Bowlers Journal and Bowling Center Management.

Bob Johnson

Bob Johnson has received more national writing awards than any other bowling writer — close to 70 over the course of his 40-year career. He began at age 16 as a staff writer and then assistant editor for the weekly Pacific Bowler newspaper in his native California, and within three years was writing feature stories for Bowlers Journal. He has written for the magazine ever since, except for a five-year span when he was hired as the founding editor of another magazine. He moved to Chicago in 2000 and spent 13 years in the Windy City, including five as Bowlers Journal’s Editor. In 1975, Johnson received the Robert E. Kennedy Award as California’s top undergraduate high school journalist. Five years earlier, on the lanes, he had shared the Bantam Division Doubles championship in the Orange County Junior Bowling Association Championships. Today, he continues to work full-time for Bowlers Journal as its Senior Editor, to write his popular “Strikes Me” column, and to edit Luby Publishing Inc.’s weekly business-to-business Cyber Report.
