Thanks Former NCVF Director Pufahl and Welcome NCVF Director Navar!
The NCVF extends gratitude and best wishes to Anne Pufahl who has retired from the NCVF Board of Directors after a decade of board service. NCVF President Sante Perrelli says “we are really fortunate to have had Anne serve as an original member of our Board of Directors. Her contributions, passion, loyalty, candor, networking and love of all things “NCVF” distinguished her as one of our greatest leaders.” Anne was a NCVF co-founder and a significant force behind the emergence of NCVF women’s opportunities. She championed several key NCVF guidance pieces that helped standardize collegiate club best practices across the nation, and took initiative to recruit and mentor key NCVF volunteers and supporters. Anne chaired the NCVF Best Practices Committee, NCVF Women’s Committee, was a member of the NCVF Compliance Committee, NCVF Championship Tournament Committee and of NCVF Finance subcommittees. Her many contributions to club volleyball has positively impacted the lives and experiences of the entire NCVF club community.
Following Anne’s departure, Andrea Navar was selected to serve as the latest member of the NCVF Board of Directors. NCVF President Sante Perrelli says “Andrea has long been a “can do” club volleyball leader and advocate, and we are thrilled to have her bring fresh and up-tempo perspectives to our NCVF leadership team.” Andrea served with Anne Pufahl and Mike Jackson as members of the NCVF Women’s Committee, and has collaborated with collegiate club presidents and leaders across the country in support of NCVF initiatives. As a former club player, women’s club coach and NCVF committee member, Andrea brings strong yet sensitive skill sets to a key NCVF leadership position. In addition to her board work, Andrea will chair the NCVF Women’s Committee, continue to serve as a member of the NCVF National Championship Tournament Committee and be a NCVF point person for in-season best practice supports. The NCVF thanks her for serving and wishes her the very best in her new role.
