In April of 2006, the IESA Board of Directors approved a recommendation from the Constitution Action Team that established annual meetings of member schools in each Board of Directors Division (Article 1.041 of the IESA Constitution). These meetings will be held in the fall of each new school year. Attendance at these fall meetings is mandatory for each member school that enters one or more IESA activities. Feeder schools (generally K-5, K-6, or 5-6 buildings which feed the junior high school) that do not enter any IESA activities are not required to attend a division meeting. A feeder school that enters an IESA activity (usually speech or music) must attend a division meeting.
In January of 2012, the IESA Board of Directors approved a recommendation to move these meetings online to help cut down travel for member schools and allow schools to have multiple representatives' view the presentation.
The Division Meeting presentation will be available online in the IESA Member Center beginning in October . The Association will also be conducting three meetings in person. The AD workshop on September 8, 2017 will have two sessions that will meet the division meeting requirement. The AD workshop will be held in Bloomington, IL at the Doubletree Hotel. A session will also be conducted at the Illinois Principal's Association (IPA) Conference on October 16, 2017 at 3:20 p.m. The IPA meeting will be held in Springfield, IL at the Prairie Captial Convention Center. Any one of these meetings will fulfill the annual division meeting requirement. Information on the Athletic Director's workshop is available here.
If a member school does not attend a meeting or participate online this fall, they will be placed on probation the first year of noncompliance. If a member school does not comply in the second year, the school shall not be permitted to participate after January 1 in any state series.
IF YOU DID NOT ATTEND A DIVISION MEETING IN THE FALL OF 2016, YOUR SCHOOL IS ON PROBATION AND HAS BEEN NOTIFIED OF SUCH. IF YOU ARE ON PROBATION, OR HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED FOR NOT ATTENDING TWO YEARS IN A ROW, YOUR STATUS WILL BE PROMINENTLY DISPLAYED ON YOUR MEMBER PROFILE SCREEN UPON LOGGING INTO THE IESA "MEMBER CENTER".
