Standing Committees:

Members: Rebecca Alley, Kai Shaw, Jill Staniec, Sequoia Thomas, Matthew Guenzel

IQA Rules Committee

The purpose of the Standing Committee on Rules is to create, maintain, and enforce a single international rules standard for international competition. Additionally the committee should be prepared at request to review major rules changes in national governing body rulebooks and approve or recommend alterations as necessary to keep every nation operating within a similar if not identical rules set. The committee will achieve both of these tasks by reviewing the matter at hand, discussing options, conducting surveys as necessary, and ultimately putting official recommendations to the IQA congress for voting approval to formalize new rules or decisions on national governing body rules.
