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.
Our Championship Series crew's keeping the heat on its charges and goals for the year. The work team chairs have already begun meeting with their teams to work on improving some aspects of the Series.
So I’m curious. Can you explain what you do, what you love, and your biggest passion in life in eight seconds or less? Seems difficult, right? Try it for yourself.
