The IAC Rule Book "Refactoring" team has just released the new IAC rule book!  Please help the rule book team out by carefully reviewing the text for errors.  This new rule book says 2020 but should be a match for the rules we used in 2019.  The rule change proposals accepted by the board at the fall meeting will be incorporated after the expiration of the member comment period.

The refactoring team whittled our 269 page book down to just under 100 pages!  

The comment period closed December 31, 2019. Watch for the new 2020 IAC Rule Book sometime at the end of January.
