Proposed Rule Changes fall into two categories:
- Representative Assembly
- Activity Advisory Committee
The Representative Assembly is the legislative body of the MSHSL and is responsible for creating and amending bylaws. Membership consists of three delegates appointed from each of the sixteen Administrative Regions.
- The Representative Assembly will hold its annual meeting on May 7, 2024 at 9 a.m. at a site to be determined.
During this meeting, the Assembly will review League activities, League finances and to review proposals in caucuses and act on proposed bylaw amendments. At least nine of the sixteen Administrative Regions must vote yes to a proposed amendment to move it forward to the Representative Assembly.
Activity Advisory Committee
The Activity Advisory Committee of each coaches and fine arts associations submit proposals seasonally to the League Office. Committee proposals are advisory and only the Board of Directors may make decisions regarding any change to an activity. The Committees may submit proposals for the following:
- State Tournament Recommendations
- Regular Season and Section Tournament Format Recommendations
- Staff Recommendations (to Tournament Staff)
- State Tournament Recommendations regarding sites and dates
The League office forwards proposals to Administrative Region Committees who conduct a straw vote and provide input and feedback to the League Office. The Activities Directors Advisory Committee and the Principals Advisory Committee will meet seasonally to provide input to the Board of Directors regarding each proposal. The Board of Directors reviews and acts on the Advisory Committee Recommendations.
The Spring Activity Advisory Proposals below will be action items by the MSHSL Board of Directors at their October 2023 meeting.
