The Michael L. Buckner Law Firm continues its review of the events and activities that occurred during the 2012 NCAA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Today’s post reviews reviews the information discussed during the Division I Issues Forum on Friday, January 13, 2012. The forum comprised the NCAA Division I membership’s “first opportunity to publicly comment on the concepts working groups have created since the August 2011 presidential retreat, and the response supported the effort to make student-athlete well-being the top priority in intercollegiate athletics”. According to the NCAA.org, “representatives from each working group (student-athlete well-being, resource allocation, rules and enforcement) presented concepts to the Division I Issues Forum”. The participants at the January 13 forum “spoke generally in support of the miscellaneous expense allowance and multi-year grants, with some caveats”. However, several persons requested the NCAA decrease “the speed of adoption and implementation”.
The Michael L. Buckner Law Firm recommends the NCAA Division I membership monitor NCAA.org and confer with conference leaders to track the ongoing legislative proposals and recommendations from the working groups.
