We will be voting on a proposed Bylaw change at the meeting. The Chicagoland USBC Board of Directors we amend our Bylaws to read: Option 1. Officers are elected by a majority vote of the board from among the current Directors, unless state laws mandate otherwise.
This proposed change would put us in line with how USBC National runs elections, as well as the majority of the larger Associations in the Country.

On December 27, 2017 Chicagoland USBC presented a check to the BVL (Bowling to Veteran's Link) for $5,000. The majority of these funds were raised through our charity tournament held in August of 2017. Since 1942, BVL has worked to identify programs and services to brighten the days and boost the spirits of our recuperating service men and women. BVL provides the ‘extras’ not funded by the government which help speed recuperation and improve morale. Some of our programs, like our annual VA/BVL Veterans Bowling Tournament, are decades-old traditions (now in it’s 71st year), while others, like our “Welcome Home: We Salute You” events and Project Military Music, were just recently launched. We pride ourselves on identifying the needs of our veterans and providing programs to fill those needs in a cost efficient and effective manner. As an association we are proud to help fund such valuable programs.
