Leadership in NIRSA
I first became a member of NIRSA (then the National Intramural Association) in 1969 and have attended every Conference since then. I have had the opportunity to watch the evolution, and more recently the revolution, of our profession. It would have been impossible for most of us in 1969 to visualize today’s outstanding programs, facilities and services. The great things that have happened in our profession and in NIRSA are the result of the work of dedicated people who have stepped up to lead in a variety of different ways. Creating new programs for participants, developing officials' training programs, writing journal articles, and presenting at Conferences are only a few of the ways our Members can express their leadership.
The NIRSA Membership is filled with talented and energetic people. The future success of our Association will depend on these talented people stepping up and leading NIRSA and the profession to bigger and better things.
I have had the wonderful opportunity to serve on the NIRSA Board five different times for a total of eight years. The Members of your Board of Directors take their role seriously and always focus on Members when making decisions concerning programs and services. From my perspective, NIRSA is getting better every year.
