The Association owes its success to the leadership of its incredible dedicated volunteers—those who support NIRSA members and direct NIRSA’s operations and services by donating their time and sharing their experiences within the collegiate recreation profession. Thanks to these professionals, the Association continues to inspire and sustain powerful communities of wellbeing worldwide.

NIRSA is currently recruiting for numerous volunteer leadership positions. Consider using your talents to help shape the future of NIRSA! Appointment to a NIRSA leadership position is an honor and privilege as well as a fantastic opportunity for personal and professional development. Give back to your association and our profession: apply to serve by Thursday, January 14!
