Alma, Mich. - The Michigan Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (MIRSA) announced its 2020-2021 executive board members and Alma College Assistant Athletics Director for Recreation and Facilites Brad Barlog has been named State Director Elect for this year. Barlog will serve on the board for the next three years.
Barlog, who joined the Alma College Athletics staff in April, will work in three different roles with MIRSA over the next three years. First as the State Director Elect for one year, then as the State Director for a year, and finally as the Past State Director for his final year of his term. The State Director Elect coordinates the operations of the standing and ad-hoc committees, coordinates appointments of committee chairs, assists in the development of goals and objectives for the association, maintains coordination of the Association membership roster, documents business meeting minutes, and assumes responsibilities of the State Director in his/her absence.
Barlog is the first representative from Alma as well as the first representative from a NCAA Division III institution to be elected to MIRSA's E-board. The Central Michigan University graduate says he is honored to be given the opportunity to help lead an organization that means so much to him.
"The purpose of MIRSA is to promote and enhance the quality of recreational sports programs in various settings throughout Michigan. I have been incredibly honored to be part of this organization over the past seven years, as both a student member and now a professional member," Barlog said. "I would not be in my current role without the support and professional development opportunities offered through MIRSA. The organization helps to foster all professional and student members in the collegiate recreation field for the state of Michigan, and I am so fortunate to be a part of it."
For the 2020-2021 year, Barlog will work alongside representatives from Michigan State Univerity and Oakland University on MIRSA's executive board. When Barlog becomes the State Director, he will be the liaison to National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) and the Region III representative, represent MIRSA at state, regional, and national events, and facilitate the goals and objectives for the association.
