Rule changes for USATF are made at our even year conventions and go into effect at the start of the odd years. However, rule changes do occur in odd years because of need for conformance with IAAF and WMA rules which are changed in odd years, i.e., 2007. Thus the changes for 2008 are the result of changes made by IAAF and/or WMA at their meetings in 2007 and approved for the most part by USATF at the Hawaii Convention in 2007.
