NIRSA Executive Director Pam Watts and NIRSA President David Davenport met today on Instagram live to discuss what's been going on in the Association since their last letter to members.
Summer is meant for swimming—even if you dislike the water or don’t know how to swim. Like a lot of people, my own mind is a place where I’ve been swimming a lot lately.
Sports are the best drama because of the raw, genuine emotion they elicit. When our favorite athletes use their platforms and direct that emotion to improving the world, fans are engaged.
We have overcome. We, the humans of NIRSA, have caught each other when the world turned upside down.
The Championship Series has influenced roughly half of my life. It has developed my professional and personal skills, and allowed me to meet some of the most fantastic and dedicated people NIRSA has to offer.
It has felt like ages since the last blog post. Believe it or not, it has been a scant six weeks since the last time we communicated regarding the Championship Series.
Serving as a leader for NIRSA means expanding your view past the here and now to continue the long-term viability and legacy of our profession’s association.
Make no mistake, this is not the end of the Championship Series—not by a long shot. What we have now is an opportunity to improve and strategize.
We’re just a little over halfway through the NIRSA Championship Series season, and a lot has happened since we last talked.
This time of year, I’m reminded of someone who’s a leader within the Championship Series as well as an excellent mentor and even better friend. Her name is Sarah Fain, and she is loved.
