The National Governing Board meeting was held in Colorado on 5/19/16. Several rule changes were proposed. Some passed, while others failed. Many of the changes in question do not affect the majority of our lifters at the local level. There is one that does:
American Records can only be set at State, Regional, National and International Championships and Pro Meets. (This would exclude any other local level competition.)
The effective date of this proposal, as decided by the Executive Committee, will be September 1, 2016.
Starting in September, the only local competitions that American Records can be broken will be the North and South Carolina State Championships.
