About the NIRSA Board of Directors

As NIRSA continues to embody our leaders in collegiate recreation moniker, the association’s Board of Directors is fully committed to providing the visionary and practical guidance needed to achieve our higher goals. While this includes developing strategic initiatives for the future of our organization, the Board also holds fiduciary and legal responsibilities, establishes policies, guides the Executive Director, and serves as sole shareholder of NIRSA Services Corporation.

The Board is currently working to ensure the successful progression of our strategic plan. This includes developing efforts and initiatives inspired by our strategic values — Health & Wellbeing; Equity, Diversity & Inclusion; Leadership; Service; Global Perspective; and Sustainable Communities — and assembling special committees to activate these values on NIRSA Member Institute campuses.

Professional and student members are encouraged to join in the conversation as the Board continues to guide our organization in how — and why — NIRSA can best build healthy campuses and communities.

The NIRSA Board of Directors comprises three officers in the Presidential Track (President, President Designee, and President Elect), three At-Large Directors, and a Board-elected Annual Director.

Nomination, Application and Election Process

Members interested in serving in a leadership position on the Board are encouraged to review the position descriptions for Presidential Track, At-Large Director, and Annual Director.

How to Get Involved

The Nominations & Appointments Committee recruits nominees, reviews applications and supporting materials, and determines the slate of candidates for the At-Large Director and Presidential Track positions on the NIRSA Board of Directors.

Candidates interested in serving in a Board position, are asked to submit an initial application, consisting of a resume and letter of application  by October 3, 2017 to elections@nirsa.org.  The letter of application should address the following two issues: Why you are interested in serving on the Board AND how you meet the qualifications and competencies for the position as listed in the Board Position Description. The committee will then invite finalists to submit the full Board of Directors application package by November 7, 2017. The full application materials include a brief bio, answers to specific leadership questions, three references, a photo and signed institutional support form.

The final slate of candidates will be approved by the current NIRSA Board and announced in mid-December 2017. Electronic elections will occur between January 17-29, 2018 with results announced shortly thereafter.

Questions?

If you have questions about the position description or election process, please feel free to contact the current Nominations & Appointments Committee Chair Ken Morton, or any Nominations & Appointments Committee member.

If you have questions about the application and supporting materials, please contact Mary Callender at NIRSA Headquarters.
