• Athletic Administrator,                                                                      August 18, 2015


    The 2015 NDIAAA Fall Workshop will be held on September 19, 20 & 21 at the Baymont Inn & Suites in Mandan. This workshop should be of interest to all. LTC 501, 502, 709, and 710A (see description on following pages) will be offered on Saturday as well as the “New AD Orientation”. There will be time for discussion and networking with athletic administrators across the state. We will have discussion “round tables” concerning issues in the area of Athletic Administration. Participants are asked to bring any items they would like to discuss during this time. Regional meetings will be held during the workshop. Peggy Stibbe will register the interested members for credit on Saturday for those fulfilling the requirements, which consist of taking at least one LTC course on Saturday and attending every session of the Fall Workshop on both Saturday & Sunday. She will also inform the membership concerning the continuing education opportunities as well as certification opportunities for all NDIAAA/NIAAA members throughout this school year. The highlight of the Fall Workshop will be presentation from Rachel Bruner-Kaufman, concerning legal issues. We will also have many other interesting topics presented. Please refer to the enclosed agenda for the complete list of topics to be discussed. We are encouraging all athletic administrators to attend this workshop and become actively involved in the NDIAAA.


    The NDIAAA is committed to providing professional growth opportunities to its membership. We do this through the NIAAA Leadership Training Program which can lead to NIAAA Certification as an athletic administrator. This program provides the opportunity to attain certification as an RAA, CAA or/and CMAA if you complete the course work and meet other criteria. By earning this certification, $1,000,000 of additional personal liability insurance will be available to you through the NIAAA at no charge. You may also have the opportunity for increased salary, depending on your school district policy. As of the spring of 2012, the NDIAAA/NIAAA workshops and conferences, if you take at least one LTI course and attend the workshop or conference, will qualify to count as a workshop as part of the administrative credential renewal process through DPI. For more information on the Leadership Training Program please contact Jim Roaldson or Peggy Stibbe.


    When completing the registration form, please pay special attention ‘gift ordering’ information as you will need to go to a website and order your gift. Very simple process!!


    We look forward to offering our membership an opportunity to network and grow professionally throughout this school year. We also set a new membership record in 2014-2015 as we had 156 members. Please join the organization that works for North Dakota athletic administrators, the NDIAAA/NIAAA.


    Thank you,

    Lorell Jungling
