NIRSA owes its success to the leadership of dedicated volunteers—to members who generously donate their time and use their experience in the collegiate recreation profession to support NIRSA members and strategically direct NIRSA’s operations and services. Thanks to these dedicated members, NIRSA continues to offer the best professional development, networking and resources to the collegiate recreation profession.
NIRSA members vote annually via electronic elections to fill positions on the NIRSA Member Network and the NIRSA Board of Directors. Elections recently closed, and the Association would like to thank the members who voted—just over 32%. From the highly qualified 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 pleased to welcome our incoming professional and student leaders to positions on the 2020–2021 NIRSA Board of Directors and Member Network beginning on May 1.
