NCAA Convention Division III IPOPL. The 2014 NCAA Convention Division III Initial Publication of Proposed Legislation (IPOPL) is now available. The IPOPL presents all proposed amendments to NCAA legislation that were properly submitted in accordance with the July 15 deadline in the NCAA legislative calendar. The IPOPL may contain proposals that are sponsored by only one member conference or 10 member institutions. If a proposal is not properly co-sponsored by September 1, 2014, the proposal will be automatically withdrawn. The IPOPL is not mailed to Division III institutions. The online version of the IPOPL continues to contain all the information of the former hard-copy version and can be printed from your computer in the traditional format. The IPOPL 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 sponsor modification period, updates will be made to LSDBi and those changes will be reflected in the IPOPL.
The 2015 NCAA Convention Division III Second Publication of Proposed Legislation (SPOPL) will be made available online to the membership September 23. The 2015 NCAA Convention Division III Official Notice, which will include final versions of proposed legislation, will continue to be made available to Convention attendees in both printed and online formats. The Official Notice will be made available November 15.
NACWAA Division III Advancement Forum. Offered at the beginning of the NACWAA National Convention and sponsored by the NCAA Division III governance staff, this half-day workshop is specifically designed for women who are interested in becoming Division III athletics directors. This year’s forum will occur Sunday, October 12, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Louisville, Kentucky. Topics discussed include preparing your resume and cover letter for the AD search as well as interviewing techniques and contract negotiations, managing a department budget, and discussing transitional issues as you prepare to become an AD. This year also will feature a “town hall” session with the presenters so participants can ask an array of questions. Space is limited to the first 30 qualified Division III NACWAA convention registrants who have not previously attended the NCAA Division III Advancement Forum. On the NACWAA registration site select Division III Advancement Forum to secure a spot. Attendees will also receive a registration fee waiver from the NCAA to attend the 2015 NCAA Convention. Attendees MUST register for the NACWAA National Convention in order to attend the Division III Advancement Forum.
