Hi NERFU Membership,
I hope you're all staying safe, sane, happy, and healthy! We miss rugby, but even more - we miss you!
UPDATE on the USA Rugby re-organization effort. Progress IS being made!
Last week, the Senior Club Rugby Council approved the new Terms of Reference that details the organizational structure of the Senior Club Council including how the Council's Executive Committee and other standing committees are seated and their authorities.
Additionally, the Council selected the officers of the Executive Committee:
- Kirk Tate (Texas GU) - Chairman
- Ken Pape (Empire GU) - Vice Chairman
- Jill Williamson (Pacific Northwest GU) - Treasurer
- Rick Humm (Northern California GU) - Secretary
The Council also selected Midwest President, Al Lucas, to represent Club Rugby as the transitional-Director on the USA Rugby Board of Directors.
Currently, the Council is working through nominations and voting on the five chairpersons for the standing committees of the Council. Each of the chairs will also sit on the Executive Committee with the officers. The five standing committees are:
- Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
- Training & Development
These chairs are open for nomination, and our President, Brad Dufresne
, has been nominated for the Eligibility Committee. If any of these specialized roles are of interest to NERFU members, please submit a resume and any relevant information to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm ET on Friday (6/19/20) for consideration. Accepted nominations will be reviewed by the Council and voted on during the Council's call on 6/23/20.
Thanks for your continued trust and optimism that NERFU Leadership is representing our Union's best interests moving forward. Please don't hesitate to reach out to your Division Director, Executive Director, or other Board members with questions.
