The NIRSA Assembly is a diverse group of individuals who work closely with high-level NIRSA leaders to determine a variety of topics that will impact the future of collegiate recreation. Each member is actively involved in work groups established around their chosen topics. They spend the year as facilitators of thought, assisting in discussions and disseminating their work.

Methods the Assembly uses to share work with the Association include developing a panel or educational session for the NIRSA Annual Conference & Campus Rec and Wellness Expo, establishing a regional conference or state meeting session, creating an online resource guide, writing NIRSA News articles, and facilitating discussion with members through the NIRSA Connect Community or an Ideas in Motion focus group.

Wherever you are in your collegiate recreation career—whether you’re a seasoned veteran, a student, or somewhere in between—please consider applying for a position on the NIRSA Assembly! Each Assembly member is selected for their unique perspective, experiences, and passion for the profession. The goal is to have a diverse membership serving on the Assembly, which includes all levels of experience and years served within the profession.

Terms begin on Tuesday, June 1 and there are positions open for both new and experienced NIRSA members.
