NASPA is pleased to announce the addition of Bryan Pepper to the Advisory Board effective January 1. Bryan is a longtime player and director, including many years as a divisional director at Nationals. Bryan was appointed by Mary Rhoades, whose tenure just ended. Outgoing Advisory Board members are given the opportunity to appoint a replacement, a policy that NASPA adopted from the NSA.
We are grateful to Mary for her five years of service on the Advisory Board, as well as her continued service on many other important NASPA committees, and we look forward to Bryan's contributions to the Advisory Board.
