Advisory committees serve as a liaison between coaches and officials from throughout the state and IGHSAU Board of Directors. Committees are comprised of varsity coaches and one official and chaired by an athletic director. Each member may serve one four-year term. Committees are strictly advisory in nature. Rules, concerns, complaints, ideas, etc. are discussed during committee meetings. From discussions, the committee makes recommendations to the Board of Directors for its consideration.
An advisory committee exists for each of the ten sports. The cross country and track & field advisory committees are joint committees with equal coaching representation from the IGHSAU and the Iowa High School Athletic Association. Typically, the committee will meet once a year following the respective state tournament. The meeting is held at the State Office (the joint committees alternate every other year between the IGHSAU and IHSAA) during a weekday and commences at 10:00 a.m. Each member attending the meeting will be paid mileage.
If you are interested in serving on an advisory committee, download the application from the IGHSAU website, complete the form and submit it to Jean Berger, Executive Director via e-mail: email@example.com. Deadline for the application is June 1.
