Expect new ideas from fresh faces of IHRSA board

New board members, from left, Jim Zupancic, Derek Gallup and Gustavo Borges.Throughout IHRSA’s 33-year history, the members of IHRSA’s board of directors have agreed on one thing: their four-year tenure has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of their professional lives.

Serving on the association’s board offers a unique opportunity to work with the best, the brightest, and the most prestigious group of business leaders in the health and fitness industry. It also affords a chance to help set the strategic course for both IHRSA itself and the industry at large.

“There’s nothing like it for individuals who are looking to share their expertise, affect public policy, and, potentially, make a difference in the lives of millions of people,” says Joe Moore, the president and CEO of IHRSA.

Each year, as two to four current board members complete their terms of service, their positions are filled by newly elected members. This process ensures that seasoned and new members sit side by side, facilitating an exchange of ideas and a balance of views, which ensures that IHRSA—and the industry – will move forward.

This month, CBI introduces you to the three newest board members - Gustavo Borges, Derek Gallup, and Jim Zupancic.

This year's new board members, from left: Rasmus Ingerslev, from Denmark, CEO of Fresh Fitness and Wexer Virtual; Allison Flatley, Chief Operating Officer for L&T Health and Fitness; and Bill Beck, right, owner, operator and president of Club Fit.

Being on the IHRSA Board of Directors is an important role for two reasons: to serve and guide both IHRSA, the trade organization that represents and serves the health and fitness club industry, as well as the fitness industry as a whole.

Each year two to four new members are elected to the Board. The deadline to apply this year is July 31, 2013.

Participating on the Board is an opportunity to work with colleagues and peers in the industry from all around the county and the world to help shape the industry with guidance, strategic direction and insight.
