As we enter a year of resurgence, we’re fortunate to have a fearless, dynamic, and forward-thinking captain in Ashley Lax. I am proud to call her a colleague, NIRSA confidant, and friend.
Safe and inclusive—two words that've carried so much meaning throughout 2020. While the Series is currently refraining from holding in-person events, an emphasis on advancing this brand promise and inspiring a shared vision remains.
On behalf of the NIRSA Championship Series, I wanted to take a moment to share some updates regarding the process in place to determine plans for the 2020-2021 season.
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.
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.
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.
