JOAD Committee Update
The JOAD Committee for 2013 will be:
Stover: North Region Representative and Committee Chair
Brian Ficker: West Region
Ludwig: East Region Representative
South Region Representative
Brown: Athlete Representative
USA Archery’s JOAD Committee is made up of five (5) members
that serve two-year terms. Members
include four regional coordinators and one athlete representative. JOAD
Committee members must be at least 18 years old and may serve up to three
consecutive two-year terms. Committee service is on a volunteer basis. The USAA JOAD Committee meets quarterly by
conference call and once a year in person. Day to day communications is
primarily by email.
Nominations were conducted for the East and South regions in
the fall of 2012. Both Doug Ludwig and
Dee Falks were re-elected for their respective regions. Current JOAD Committee members interviewed
all nominees, and recommendations were then given to the USAA Board of Directors
to be approved. USA Archery would like to thank all who applied for the
positions. Each region had several
strong nominees, many of who were asked to sit on an ad-hoc committee to share
their ideas and help support JOAD in their respective areas.
The JOAD Committee will have its annual meeting on February
6th in Las Vegas, in coordination with the World Archery
Festival. Please continue reading for a
short biography of each of the new JOAD Committee members.
