Welcome to the official website of the MIAAA!
The mission of the Missouri Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association is to take a leadership role in athletic issues to enhance the educational process for student athletes.
The MIAAA was recently recognized by the NIAAA leadership for its membership numbers this year and the past five years. Thanks to many people including Keith Chapman, Marty O'Hern, Josh Scott, and Todd Schrader for spearheading this effort. You can read about it here.
MIAAA Approves Constitution Changes- Adds Two New Board Positions
These two at-large positions will be elected every two years in even numbered years. Both at large positions must be served by underrepresented athletic administrators (a minority AD and/or female AD). The At-Large Region 1 position will serve the Kansas City and St. Louis Districts. Each of these districts can nominate two athletic administrators by February 1st of even numbered years. The At-Large Region 2 position will serve the Central, Northeast, Northwest, South Central, and Southeast, and Southwest districts. Each of these districts may nominate one athletic administrator by February 1st of even numbered years. The two elections will take place between the up to four candidates from the Kansas City/St. Louis Districts and the up to six candidates of the Central, Northeast, Northwest, South Central, and Southeast, and Southwest, at the Spring Conference Business Meeting of even numbered years.
The term for the at-large positions is two years. Congratulations to Teron Sharp and Linda Heishman who were elected to these positions at the 2022 Spring Conference.
