1. CALL TO ORDER. The meeting was called to order at 9:50 a.m. by the ADA President, Meg Schebler.

2. ROLL CALL. Members were present as noted above.

3. APPROVAL OF AGENDA. Moved/Seconded (Wilson/Carpenter). The agenda was approved as submitted.

4. APPROVAL OF MINUTES. Moved/Seconded (Lawson/Hanton). Minutes from the June 2006 business
   meeting at NACDA were approved as written.

   a. CACI. Mike Fratzke reported that CACI reviewed and discussed direct qualification. Ratings Task Force
      reported on the progress they have made over the past two years. The baseball coaches requested
      that the CACI revisit the national letter of intent. Sport Liasons were reassigned from the CACI
      membership. A committee was appointed to review the limits needed for the Hall of Fame Award. A
      clarification was made on the Daktronics Scholar Athlete in that the “full year” must be continuous.
      Support was given to increase the wrestling scholarship limit from 8 to 10. This will need to be
      forwarded to the COP. The Sport Wagering Draft was reviewed and the CACI suggests that better
      wording in the document be made as to the application of NAIA sports only. The CAA should be
      advised to double check Men’s basketball I in relation to the filing of statistics or lack thereof and still
      competing in the national championship.

    b. CAA. Bob Wilson reported the CAA reviewed and subsequently modified the CAA Policy Manual with
       regard to forfeits. Institutions will be allowed the opportunity to request forfeits be granted for
       contests scheduled against teams that drop a sport during the season. Games cancelled after August
       10 for fall, October 10 for winter and January 10 for spring will be subject to forfeit procedures. The
       CAA endorsed the position statement on sports wagering as written by the sports wagering task force.
       The deadline to complete region championship play for men’s soccer has been moved to the
       Wednesday prior to the start of the national tournament (same as women’s soccer - November 7 in
       2007). Region Chairs should notify all regional men’s soccer chairs and conference chairs of the
       change, as it may impact currently scheduled competition. The CAA clarified that for any sport
       offering a championship that uses the NAIA name/logo, the sport must follow NAIA eligibility rules.
       This includes emerging sports. The CAA re-clarified declaration of intent procedures for cross country
       and golf. If a team shows up at the regional championships without a full team and has not
       undeclared, the team will not be permitted to run in that regional championship and will be subject to
       declaration of intent violation procedures.

    c.   Workshops.    The ADA workshop is scheduled for Monday at 8:00 a.m. and will address
         implementation of the strategic plan. Three workshops are being developed for the NACDA convention
         in June.

    d. Awards. See new business.

   a. Updated AD of the Year Nomination Forms. Mike Fratzke presented a revised version of the AD of the
      Year nomination form, which now asks for more specific achievements and requires nominees to be
      the AD at the current institution for at least 5 years. Revised forms are in the ADA meeting packet.

         Motion to accept the revised nomination forms (Hanton/Bain).
         ADA vote: Approved 93-0
   b. Nominate ADA Committee Positions. The NAIA Conduct and Ethics Committee is comprised of three
      NAIA-ADA members and two NAIA-FARA members. A third ADA member is needed.
      Nominations: Julia Peterson, Robert Morris College
                      Dan Hanton, Graceland University
                      Bruce Parker, Carroll College
      Motion to cease nominations (Schuldheisz/Bain). ADA voted Julia Peterson as the new ADA
      representative on the Conduct and Ethics Committee.

   c.   Review Upcoming Legislative Issues/Straw Vote.
            Bylaws Amendment #1 – 28-73 against
            Bylaws Amendment #2 – 16-79 against
            Bylaws Amendment #3 – 83-10 in favor

            Bylaws Amendment #7 – 93-5 in favor

   a. ADA Secretary. Jud Damon of Savannah College of Art and Design has been voted the new ADA
      secretary and will take office at the conclusion of the ADA business meeting at the NACDA convention.
