The WIAA Board of Control reviewed and approved sending a number of potential amendments to the Constitution, Bylaws and Rules of Eligibility to the membership for a vote at the Annual Meeting in April.

Two of the most significant amendments to the Constitution proposed in years will be on the ballot. One is a petition by a segment of member schools that would establish a 1.65 enrollment multiplier applicable to the enrollments of all private, religious and independent schools in the WIAA membership for tournament placement.

The second would remove the authority and responsibility for conference formation and realignment from the Board of Control and return that responsibility back to the membership and local control. If approved, member schools would be responsible for their own conference affiliations.
