The WRC invites the WCA Community to discuss and send feedback on a new draft version of the WCA Regulations for early 2019. This version is not final, and we welcome suggestions on any aspect of the set of changes.
If there are no major issues, we plan to send a final draft to the WCA Board for approval at the beginning of March. (See Motion 14.2019.1 for details about the process.)
