2018 NCAA Convention Division III Second Publication of Proposed Legislation, Amendments-to-Amendments and Resolutions

The 2018 NCAA Convention Division III Second Publication of Proposed Legislation will be available through the NCAA website at www.ncaa.org September 23.  The SPOPL contains all proposed amendments to NCAA Division III legislation that were properly submitted in accordance with the July 15 and September 1 deadlines in the NCAA legislative calendar.

The SPOPL is not mailed to Division III institutions.  The SPOPL is produced directly from the Legislative Services Database for the Internet (LSDBi) each time it is downloaded.  Therefore, the content of the publication may change each time it is accessed from the NCAA webpage.  As modifications or corrections are made to proposals during the amendment-to-amendment period, updates will be made to LSDBi and those changes will be reflected in the SPOPL.

No new proposals may be submitted by the Division III membership for the 2018 NCAA Convention inasmuch as the July 15 and September 1 deadlines have passed.  Member institutions and conferences, as well as the NCAA Division III Presidents Council and Management Council, now have until November 1 to submit amendments to these proposals.  (See document entitled "Amendment-to-Amendment Procedures.")

In addition, member institutions and conferences, as well as the Presidents Council, now have until November 1 to submit a resolution.  (See document entitled "Sponsoring Resolutions Procedures.")  These amendments-to-amendments and resolutions, if sponsored properly, will be considered at the 2018 Convention to be held January 17-20, 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Members are reminded of the amendment-to-amendment and resolution procedures set forth in NCAA Constitution 5 of the 2017-18 NCAA Division III Manual.  In particular, please note that the deadline for the submission of amendments-to-amendments and resolutions is 5 p.m. Eastern time, November 1.

As a service to the membership, the NCAA staff and the NCAA Division III Interpretations and Legislation Committee may edit amendments-to-amendments and resolutions for clarity and will communicate with legislative sponsors as necessary. 

Any questions regarding legislative procedures, the amendment-to-amendment or the resolution processes should be referred to Chris Brown or Jeff Myers at the NCAA national office
(317-917-6222).
