WCHA meeting to discuss budgets, media packages, items to ‘vote on and stamp out’

According to the Bemidji Pioneer, presidents from the WCHA are meeting in Bemidji, Minn., Sunday and Monday to look at league budgets, potential media packages and items commissioner Bruce McLeod said need to “vote on and stamp out.”

“A few of the presidents met together at our regular league meetings in Florida where we usually meet, but this is the first time we’ve had all the presidents together,” McLeod said to the Pioneer. “We have some official business, but certainly part of it is getting together and getting to know one another, try and get a feel for one another.”

The report also states that the meeting will also include athletic directors, a coaching representative and a faculty representative from each school.

McLeod said the primary item on the agenda is a media package that includes television deals for WCHA’s regular season and tournament games as well as internet streaming rights.

Revising the league’s bylaws and postseason tournament details are also expected to be discussed in Bemidji.
