All policies of the CWPA are determined by the member institutions through an annual legislative process.
The CWPA staff has no policy-making authority and may only implement the actions voted on by the membership.
Institutions submit proposals by June 30th. Proposals can be written to affect a gender, a class of membership (varsity or club), an individual division, or the conference as a whole.
Institutions review proposed legislation and vote using email or approved survey software. For division legislation, a quorum of 50% of the division must vote.
Institutions receive only one vote, regardless of the number of teams entered in the competition.
All elected positions are filled through this process.
