The New Mexico Activities Association’s Board of Directors met in special session Friday via a Zoom.
Executive Director Sally Marquez presented three discussion items, which included information regarding upcoming rules and officials’ clinics, pre-participation physical evaluations for 2020-2021, and a request from NMPSIA to require a new coaches education course.
The Board of Directors took action on the following items:
- Voted in favor of a proposal to adopt special scholastic eligibility guidelines for the 2020 fall semester due to the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on the current academic semester.
- Voted in favor of a proposal that places summer activities under the jurisdiction of the NMAA for 2020 based on the public health orders implemented by the Governor.
- Voted in favor of a proposal to allow activity events to take place virtually after Memorial Day (i.e. FFA, Speech & Debate, FCCLA, etc.).
The next NMAA Board of Directors’ meeting is scheduled for May 28.
