The deadline for submission for IAC members to propose changes to the IAC Official Contest Rules for the 2020 contest season was July 1st. These proposals have now been compiled by IAC Rules Chair Doug Sowder. Originally a total of 16 proposals from the membership were received and posted this morning. However, a glitch in the email system revealed that there were actually 29 rule proposals.
An updated PDF with all 29 of the rule proposals is available for download below.
To be noted, there is work being done to revise the rule book to make it more concise and easier to navigate. The 2020 rule proposals presented here apply to the rule book as it stands in 2019; rule and paragraph numbering may change.
Members must submit their comments to this address: RulesChair [at] iac.org
Those comments must be received by October 11, 2019. All comments will be compiled and submitted to the IAC Board of Directors as a part of their agenda package for their meeting on November 6-7, 2019. The Rules Committee will present their recommendations on these proposals during that meeting as well.
Our thanks to all our members who submitted their ideas to improve our rules and our competitions.
