Division III Management Council to ponder future direction
The Division III Management Council will consider next steps for dealing with membership growth issues during its April 14-15 meeting in Indianapolis.
It is the first meeting of a Division III governance group since the recent decision to halt consideration of creating a new NCAA division or subdivision to accommodate the growth and diversity of Division III. The Council will review the results of the recent membership survey and the final report from the Division III Working Group on Membership Issues, which had suggested restructuring. It also will discuss specific growth-related problems that should be reviewed by Division III committees.
Council members also will have an opportunity to suggest an agenda for a series of Town Hall Meetings planned in Division III. Those meetings to discuss survey results and related options for addressing growth concerns will be May 8 in Indianapolis, May 19 in Boston and June 2 in San Antonio.
In other actions, the Council will review Division III’s proposed budget for the next two years. The recommendations, which ultimately are subject to approval by the Division III Presidents Council, include funding for championships as well as for strategic initiatives and other nonchampionships programming.
The Council also is expected to review:
