Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

2017-18 NEWMAC Superfan of the Month

2016-17 NEWMAC Superfan of the Month

2015-16 NEWMAC Superfan of the Month

The 2015-16 NEWMAC SAAC Group met during NCAA Division III Week for their annual April Meeting.

Mission Statement 

The NEWMAC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is committed to academic and athletic excellence, strengthened by the diversity of our selective institutional membership.   We support student development, leadership and the educational value of athletics competition through a commitment to the NCAA Division III philosophy and our core values.  This group provides a forum for student-athletes and administrators to exchange ideas pertaining to NCAA and NEWMAC legislation as well as promotes student leadership through conference-wide programing and community service.   

Guiding Principles

  • Promote a positive student-athlete image
  • Provide a student voice pertaining to conference and NCAA policies
  • Encourage the promotion of good sportsmanship and respect among NEWMAC institutions
  • Provide a forum for communication between student-athletes within the conference
  • Discuss and develop leadership principles to be shared with campus SAAC groups
  • Solicit student-athlete response to proposed NCAA legislation

Functions

Those that serve on the NEWMAC SAAC committee will act as the liaisons between the student-athletes of our member institutions and the administrators. The committee will serve as a voice to represent the concerns of all student-athletes and to discuss issues impacting student-athlete well-being.

Committee Members

The NEWMAC SAAC will consist of twenty-two student-athletes, two representatives from each conference school.  Co-ed schools are encouraged to have one male and one female representative.  Representatives from each school should be in different graduating classes.  A representative should serve a minimum of one year.  Committee members must be appointed by September 30th annually. 

Ex-officio members will include an AAG liaison or any other administrator from a member institution and a representative from the conference office.

Structure

Executive Committee:  The executive board will be comprised of a chair, vice chair, secretary and an additional non-voting member.  All committee members must have served on the NEWMAC SAAC one year prior to serving on the e-board.  Each member institution will be able to nominate one SAAC member and selection will be determined by the conference office.  The e-board must be comprised of individuals representing the three regions of the conference.  The e-board is responsible for working with the assistant director to prepare for, facilitate and document meetings/teleconferences as well as serve as the main communicators for the NEWMAC SAAC

  • Role of Chair:  The Chairperson will ensure that the NEWMAC SAAC and executive board functions efficiently and effectively, facilitates meetings, establishes that all relevant matters are discussed and that effective decisions are made and carried out.  The chair will also serve as the liaison to the conference office.
  • Role of Vice Chair:  The vice chair assumes the responsibilities of the chair should this position become vacant or the chair is unable to fulfill them.  The vice chair should participate in the responsibilities of the chair by providing support to the chair in all aspects of the position.
  • Role of Secretary:  The secretary is responsible for taking minutes for the two in person NEWMAC SAAC meetings and all executive board meetings as well as maintaining committee historical and financial documents. He/she is also responsible for maintaining committee archives and at the end of their term, passing the materials on to the in-coming officer. 
  • Role of Membership Coordinator (Non-voting Member):  The membership coordinator will provide feedback and support to the board as well as maintain the committee membership information database and may be asked to distribute communications via email.  

Programing Committee: The programming committee will work with the conference office to review recommendations pertaining to programming initiatives. This group will determine which conference-wide initiatives compliment the NEWMAC mission, then select, organize and execute the program/event with the conference office.   

  • Role of Chair:  The Chairperson will ensure that the programming committee functions efficiently and effectively, facilitates meetings, establishes that all relevant programs/events are discussed and that effective decisions are made and carried out. The chair will also serve as the liaison to the conference office. 
  • Role of Vice Chair:  The vice chair assumes the responsibilities of the chair should this position become vacant or the chair is unable to fulfill them.  The vice chair should participate in the responsibilities of the chair by providing support to the chair in all aspects of the position.
  • Role of Secretary:  The secretary is responsible for taking minutes for all programming committee meetings as well as maintaining committee historical and financial documents. He/she is also responsible for maintaining committee archives and at the end of their term, passing the materials on to the in-coming officer. 
  • Role of Administrator Representative (Non-voting Member):  The administrator representative will provide administrative insight and guidance for the committee while supporting the work of the group.    

Meetings

  • NEWMAC SAAC: will meet in person twice a year at a central location.  Additional teleconference calls may occur.
  • Executive Board: will meet in person twice a year at a central location and conduct no less than four conference calls per school year.
  • Programming Committee:  will meet in person twice a year at a central location and conduct no less than three conference calls per school year.  

Voting

Whenever a vote is needed, each institution may cast one vote.  It is preferred that voting occurs after each school confers with their campus SAAC.  If an institution sends an alternate representative, that person may cast an institutional vote.  New legislation shall pass if a simple majority votes to affirm it; a tie will not be sufficient cause to pass new legislation.
