United States Powerlifting Association Dissolves Executive Committee in the Wake of Background Check Controversy
The USPA promises to conduct background checks, start a new board of directors, and hire a third-party firm to handle misconduct.
and other articles, videos, etc., will tell you more - there was a scandal related to the USPA apparently hiring meet directors with "issues" - you can look online for more.
I recently contacted the meet director for my last PL competition, a USPA event in PA held last November. He is, it turns out, now one of the cofounders of the National Powerlifting League, NP League – American based federation, National Powerlifting League
My reaction to all this is: <sigh>.
