The NASC staff and Board of Directors are happy to announce the hiring of an additional staff member to better serve the needs of our ever-growing membership. With a membership that has grown more than 25% in the last five years, it is of utmost importance that the national office continues to deliver a high level of personal service to each and every one of our member organizations.
Therefore, an additional member services coordinator, Allison Deak, began her tenure with the NASC on October 6, 2015. With this staff change comes some restructuring and shifts in responsibilities of each staff member at the national office to more appropriately handle the volume of daily activity required to service nearly 800 member organizations.
Don Schumacher, CSEE, Executive Director, is a founder of the NASC and has been the executive director since 1994. Don develops and implements the strategic plan for the NASC. He also leads NASC strategic consulting services and CSEE.
Lori Gamble, Associate Executive Director, has been an integral part of the leadership team of the NASC since 1994. In addition to her responsibility of managing the annual operating budget, Lori will oversee the sponsorship program and meeting management, including the annual NASC Sports Event Symposium and NASC Market Segment Meetings.
Elizabeth Young, Director of Membership and Marketing, has been on staff since 2007. Elizabeth will continue to lead the membership recruitment and renewal efforts and develop and implement the annual marketing and communications plan. Elizabeth also manages the NASC Sports Legacy Fund and NASC Member Awards, oversees advertising sales, and serves as the editor of NASC publications.
Meagan McCalla, Member Services Coordinator, has been on staff since 2013. Meagan will continue to be the primary point of contact for all Active member organizations (destinations). Active members should expect quarterly service calls from Meagan and contact her for any questions regarding membership renewals, account updates, registration for NASC meetings, or general inquiries about member services and benefits.
Allison Deak, Member Services Coordinator, will join the staff in October 2015. Allison will be the primary point of contact for all Allied and Rights Holder members (vendors and event owners). Allied and Rights Holder members should expect quarterly service calls from Allison and contact her for any questions regarding membership renewals, account updates, registration for NASC meetings, or general inquiries about member services and benefits.
We look forward to continuing to serve the needs of all of our members and remain your resource for the sports tourism
industry for years to come.
