The NSCA Board is the governing body that guides the NSCA. It is comprised of a President, Educational/Institutional Strength and Conditioning Professional Member, Personal Trainer Member, Academician/Researcher Member, Sports Medicine Professional Member, three Board Members and a Public Member.
The development of the NSCA approved accrediting agency (soon to be formally incorporated as the Council on Accreditation of Strength and Conditioning Education [CASCE]) is currently underway and is expected to be fully functional by 2021, with the first program targeted to be accredited in 2022.
The NSCA Special Committee on Accreditation is moving forward with this this initiative and is formally requesting applications/nominations for two open Board positions.
The Special Committee on Accreditation is also excited to announce a call for positions on two of its standing Committees.
