Wichita and Affiliated Tribes Sports Commission
On March 22, 2011, the Wichita Executive Committee approved Resolution WT-11-67 enacting the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes Sports Commission Act. The act was later amended by the Wichita Executive Committee by Resolution WT-12-97, on September 18, 2012.
The Sports Commission has the power and duty to promulgate, prescribe, amend, and repeal rules necessary to implement the provisions of the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes Sports Commission Act and other applicable federal and tribal laws including, but not limited to, defining qualifications, categories, limitations, and fees for licenses, permits, and examinations, and establishing bonding, contract, and insurance requirements.
The Tribe established a Sports Commission which regulates sporting events within the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes' jurisdiction, and in other jurisdictions upon receiving proper approval from the appropriate governmental officials and from the Association of Boxing Commissioners, including, but not limited to boxing, mixed martial arts, auto racing, horse racing, rodeos, and all other similar sporting events.
The Commission consists of three (3) members appointed by the Executive Committee by Resolution. The Commission is comprised of a Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, and at least one additional Commissioner. Members serve one-year (1) terms, and may be reappointed. The terms for the current Commissioners expire in January.
