Stacey Nuveman and Michael White selected to ASA Board of Directors
Oklahoma City, Okla.---By a vote of their peers, USA Softball National Team members Stacey Nuveman (La Verne, Calif.) and Michael White (Sioux City, Iowa) have been elected as the athlete representatives on the Board of Directors for the Amateur Softball Association effective November 10, 2006. Nuveman and White join former National Team member Amy Hillenbrand (Tucson, Ariz.) who has two years remaining in her term as the USOC Athlete Advisory Committee Representative on the ASA Board.
Nuveman is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and current member of the USA Softball Women’s National Team. She helped lead the U.S. to its first World Cup of Softball title in 2006 and its sixth consecutive ISF Women’s World Championship this past summer in Beijing, China.
White is a current member of the USA Softball men’s national team and helped the U.S. to a gold medal at the 2003 Pan American Qualifier in Guatemala and a gold medal at the 2006 AAU Men’s Fastpitch Championship in Orlando, Fla.
Hillenbrand won a gold medal with the USA Women’s National Team during the 1998 ISF Women’s World Championship in Fujinomiya, Japan. She is a current member of the USA Softball Women’s National Team selection committee that is charged with selecting teams to represent the ASA at various international events including the 2008 Olympics.
These athlete representatives will join 12 other elected officials from the Amateur Softball Association to form a restructured Board of Directors that will consist of 15 members rather than the 34 that are currently serving.
After a vote of the ASA National Council during the 2006 National Council Meeting, the ASA Board of Directors will consist of the President, the President Elect, Immediate Past President, three athlete representatives elected by the athletes, one at-large member elected annually by the Board of Directors and eight territorial representatives that will be elected by the Council delegates from their respective territory during the 2006 ASA National Council Meeting.
The newly formed ASA Board of Directors will hold their first meeting on November 10, 2006 in Colorado Springs at the conclusion of the 2006 ASA National Council Meeting.
