2024 Advisory Board Proposals Now Online

2024 Advisory Board Proposals Now Online

Each year, the Color Guard, Percussion, and Winds Advisory Boards consider proposals regarding rules and policies that govern WGI. Any competing ensemble that participated in a 2024 WGI event could submit a proposal for consideration. Proposals are published below prior to the meetings for review and then voted upon by the respective advisory board.

The following individuals have applied for positions of leadership in WGI. Each candidate will be required to have an Advisory Board member “second” the nomination in order to advance. A candidate that is not seconded will not appear on the ballot. Each candidate will have an opportunity to present themselves for consideration prior to voting.
