In my experience, Julie has been an excellent Chair for the Communications Committee. Over the past two years: she has been crucial in implementing the Mentorship Program for newly appointed Directors and Advisors, establishing an all-inclusive informative resource for board members, and has been an advocate for member outreach by contributing to the formation and execution of Town Halls and Office Hours.
I strongly believe that her work has been valuable at both the board and member level. Her future contribution will help to continue moving the NAIGC in a positive and productive direction. -- Dane Lee
Julie is an amazing asset to the board. She is more passionate than anyone else about listening to the membership and really trying to deliver what people want. She has really great ideas, is never afraid to speak up, and has endless energy -- Julia Sharpe
One of the main purposes of the board is to represent the membership and serve in their best interest. This involves being knowledgable of clubs' and individual member's opinions or ideas and understanding how to communicate with those members so that their voices are heard.
In my experience, Julie Rolla is a strong advocate of transparency and communication amongst the NAIGC's membership and within the board of director's itself. She has reached out to many clubs and individuals to make sure that their opinions are heard. She is passionate about helping clubs succeed, even ones she is not actively competing for. She has helped new clubs grow with one-on-one brainstorming sessions, and established clubs thrive when they needed an extra hand.
As a new board member myself, Julie has been an invaluable asset to help guide and teach me the intricacies of what it means to be a board member for the NAIGC. She has helped guide other new board members towards finding their purpose/ niche within the organization.
Julie has also been instrumental in initiating Tumbling and Trampoline meets in the Mid-East. She has put in a lot of work promoting T&T at her local gym and throughout the region as well as making sure that all meets hosted in her local gym offer T&T. I believe that having board members that are willing to support Caleb in expanding T&T (more than just a vote) is important.
I highly recommend Julie Rolla continue to assist the NAIGC as a board member due to her strong committment in representing clubs' interests and her dedication to making the NAIGC a place that embodies "For the Love of the Sport". -- Alice Snyder
Julie was a big help for me as a newer director, she was very involved with on-boarding me the BOD, and always was there to answer any questions or lend a hand when I needed help with a project. Julie is incredibly passionate about the NAIGC and is one of the most helpful individuals I have worked with. Julie will go out of her way to give membership what they want out of the NAIGC. -- Mason Marek
