Spring Update on NCEA Activities
In an effort to maintain the flow of accurate and timely information about National Collegiate Equestrian Association activities, I am providing an update following the annual spring meeting in Fort Worth, Texas, with direct information about our progress.
The annual meetings include all coaches and administrative staff from all NCEA programs. At this meeting we formalized the Board of Directors and Executive Committee structures that were drafted in December to better align with our bylaws and are designed to move the NCEA forward in a more efficient manner. The Board of Directors will focus primarily on sport governance and the Executive Committee will focus on the business side of the sport including expansion of collegiate opportunities and increasing membership. This division of responsibilities provides for a balanced approach to oversight of all NCEA activities.
New officers were elected to leadership positions within the NCEA: Meghan Boenig, University of Georgia (president); Haley Schoolfield, TCU (president-elect); Meghan Cunningham, University of Tennessee at Martin (past president); Greg Williams, (vice president – finance); Boo Major, University of South Carolina (vice president – sport advancement); and Carol Gwin, SMU (vice president – sport advancement). In addition, we are excited about the increased involvement of our sport administrators on NCEA committees; their contributions are invaluable as we continue to work toward expanding the number of collegiate equestrian programs across the nation.
