There are dozens of members engaged in vital leadership positions within the Sports Academy.  Without their leadership and vision, the Academy's work would not get done.  Most terms of service are three years in length and are renewable for up to one additional term.  If you are interested in assisting the Academy through one of these leadership roles or a role within the Special Interest Groups, please reach out to let us know you're interested.
