Please see our Constitution for further details regarding duties and qualifications for Board positions.

What is involved in being a Board member:

All Board members are expected to attend a monthly Board meeting where they will report on issues/concerns relevant to their position. Additionally, each board member is required to participate on various committees within the Board that meet independent of the monthly Board meetings.

Board members should be available to attend to NGHA business in a timely fashion and are expected to respond to NGHA emails and calls on a daily basis.

For Competitive Directors, there is an additional (and big) time commitment during tryouts and when team budgets are being approved.

For House League Directors, there is an additional (and big) time commitment during sortouts and championship weekend.

The Registrar can expect to be busy during registration, tryouts and sortouts.

Please submit nominations to our Secretary, Karrie Singer by May 24, 2022 via email: NGHASecretary@gmail.com.
