The 2018 WGI Color Guard, Percussion, and Winds Advisory Board Meetings have been set for May 18-19 and will be returning to the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is the annual meeting representatives vote on the rules and policies that govern WGI as well as the election of individuals to division steering committees as well as the organization’s board of directors.
Each advisory board is composed of one representative from each Independent World and Scholastic World finalist and the top five (5) finalists from all other classes of competition at the preceding world championships.
“Our annual advisory board meetings are the backbone of how WGI operates with regard to each division determining their rules and policies,” said Executive Director Ron Nankervis. “The discussions and decisions coming out of this very vital weekend lays the blueprint for the future of WGI as well as give direction to the indoor marching arts activity.”
Any color guard, percussion ensemble, or winds group participating in the current season may submit rule or policy proposals for consideration. Proposal forms will be available beginning May 1 and the deadline for submission will be Thursday, May 10. All accepted proposals will be published online prior to the meeting. Any proposals passed by the Advisory Boards will then be forwarded to the WGI Board of Directors for final approval at their annual meeting in July.
Elections for the WGI Board of Directors and individual steering committees will also be held at this meeting. To see more information on the Advisory Boards and how WGI operates, please visit our website to see the organization’s By-Laws and Policy Manual.
