“The added bonus is the ability to serve with other like-minded individuals to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of the challenges our industry is faced with every day,” Moss says. “When the board meets three times a year, we make it a priority to work out together, try new concepts, and visit our friends at different IHRSA clubs. We like to have fun!”
IHRSA Board meetings have been known to incorporate yoga, walking, weight training, kayaking, and other activities into discussions and brainstorming sessions.
“The shared time with other board members is extremely rewarding and fulfilling,” says Allison Flatley, former chair of the IHRSA Board Nominations Committee. “Being able to collaborate with so many successful leaders is inspiring. Plus, you develop close relationships and network with industry colleagues.”
The Board of Directors’ term is four years. The time commitment is five to 10 hours per month, including travel to three two-day board meetings and committee participation. Travel costs for the Board meetings are covered by the association.
