Introduction As a way to communicate to the membership the efforts to deter recruiting while applying the rules as created by the Membership and in addition to use these circumstances to educate other member schools, BCSS will publish the results of the findings for recruiting complaints. This summary is not meant to provide a full record of the details, and wherever possible BCSS will remove names or identifiers of various individuals. The idea is to promote awareness of BCSS policies and compliance with them.   Case Summary - Recruiting Complaint - Public.pdf
