Greensboro, NC ACC SAAC Conference Update - Rachel Regone and Tyler Morey
• Thank you for filling out Championship Surveys - let's remember to keep the language clean and mature
- Men's Soccer: Wanted all games for the conference tournament played on the main field. Denied because of lighting issues, etc
- Men's & Women's Swimming and Diving: Potential combined conference championship denied
- Men's & Women's Track and Field: Wanted all conference championships to be held at Virginia Tech. Denied, but next year's championship may be held there
- Men's and Women's XC: Will probably move to chip system for timing to ensure better accuracy
- Volleyball: Potential conference tournament with decrease of regular season games, be on the lookout for a survey

• Conference-Wide Community Service Project
- Positive discussion about it, will probably start serious discussion on dates and ideas next September

• The ACC would like to remind all student-athletes that they are a non-profit organization and 90% of the money they make is returned to the conference institutions

• Community Service idea from Florida State
- "Semi-gnome" - an object that is passed around teams and photographed in community service projects those teams do
- When a team receives the gnome, they have about two weeks to do a community service project

• Sportsmanship Award
- Clemson's ACC nominees were Maggie Bernard and C.J. Spiller
- Maggie Bernard was chosen by the ACC to represent us at the national level for the NCAA Sportsmanship Award!

Jason Chatlosh & Lauren Klas: Solid Orange Benefit Update
• Solid Orange Benefit cancelled due to lack of sufficient time for planning
• Student-Athlete Lunch Date Auction proposed in its place
