During the meeting of the IGRA Board of Directors, held on April 18, 2020, via video conference, the Board discussed the impact of COVID-19 on IGRA, on our Member and Recognized Associations, and on the individuals who are part of, or are associated with, our organization.
The Board gave weighted consideration to health and safety, financial, logistical, and other concerns,and adopted a plan to address these, specifically the IGRA COVID-19 Plan.
The plan highlights are as follows:
In essence, the rodeo years 2020 and 2021 will be combined into one season. All points earned at any rodeo held in 2020 will apply to the combined season. Sanction fees paid for 2020 rodeos that are postponed to 2021 will carry forward to those rodeos.
The Finals Rodeo and Annual Convention will not be held in 2020. Officers, directors, certified officials, royalty, and other elected or appointed positions will continue in their roles into 2021.
The detailed plan and relevant documents can be viewed on the IGRA website
