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.
5. COMMITTEE REPORTS.
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
d. Awards. See new business.
