NAAC Launches New Logo in Advance of #NAAC18|
June 19, 2018
CLEVELAND - The National Association for Athletics Compliance (NAAC) is proud to announce the release of its new logo.
Earlier this year, NAAC updated and streamlined its mission statement and created guiding principles that better reflect NAAC in its current form. Once this change took place, the Board sought input from the membership to select a new logo that better reflected the updated mission statement of the Association.
Since 1997, when NAAC was NAACC (National Association of Athletics Compliance Coordinators), the Association has undergone a multitude of changes, including increasing membership from 150-plus to over 1,200-plus members today.
“Our industry and organization has evolved greatly since the current NAAC logo was adopted in 2008. It is time for us to move forward as an organization with a logo more representative of our mission statement, guiding principles and profession as a whole”, said NAAC President Dustin Gray, senior associate athletics director for administration, University of Pittsburgh. “The Board would like to thank the membership who took the time to help us select what our future branding looks like.”
As NAAC looks to the future, the curved arcs on the new logo depict strength, shelter and security. The expanded sides convey the growing reach of the organization and profession. The absence of straight lines and open ends demonstrates a flexibility and openness to new thoughts and ideas of the organization and membership.
The updated logo has also stayed consistent with the color blue, known for associating feelings of trust, security and order.
