NIRSA owes its success to the leadership of volunteers who generously donate their time and use their experience in the collegiate recreation profession to support NIRSA members and direct NIRSA’s operations and services. Thanks to these dedicated members, NIRSA is able to continue creating and sustaining powerful communities of wellbeing worldwide!

NIRSA members in the newly-established Canadian Region recently voted via electronic elections to fill the open positions on the NIRSA Member Network and the Canadian Regional Leadership Team. From the robust slate of inspiring individuals who stood for office to the dedicated members who took time out of their busy schedules to vote, the strength of our Association depends on your voice—and you’ve made it count.

The Association is thrilled to welcome our incoming professional and student leaders to positions on the 2017-2018 Member Network who assumed their roles on May 1.
