CLEVELAND- Beginning today, the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) will oversee the day-to-day operations of the Division II Conference Commissioner’s Association (DII CCA).
Initiated in 1992 to promote its member conferences and institutions, the DII CCA has made its mark in providing a united front for NCAA Division II athletics. Created after the break-up of the College Division Commissioners Association, the DII CCA continues to create lines of communication and opportunities for its members and conferences.
DII CCA is led by President Steve Murray, of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference, as well as Past President Jim Naumovich, Great Lakes Valley Conference; 1st Vice President Dave Brunk, Peach Belt Conference; 2nd Vice President Dell Robinson, Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference; and Secretary Alan Patterson, Conference Carolinas.
“We are thrilled to add the DII CCA to NACDA's ever growing list of affiliate organizations that fall under the auspices of our affiliate umbrella” said NACDA Executive Director Bob Vecchione. “They are a welcome addition and we look forward to continuously advocating and engaging athletics administrators at the Division II level.”
The mission of the CCA is to encourage and promote Division II athletics and high standards of sportsmanship as important elements of higher education. The CCA is a key communications link among the conferences as they discuss views, policies and regulations that impact Division II intercollegiate athletics.
