CTC's Archer Named Men's Asst. Region Director for GCAA
Friday, April 15, 2011
It has been announced by league officials that Chattahoochee Tech athletics coordinator and head men's basketball coach David Archer was appointed Assistant Region Director for NJCAA Region 17 (Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association) men's athletics for the 2011-12 school year. Archer was named to the position after a vote by GCAA member coaches and staff.
"It is a great honor to be able to have the opportunity to get involved in the administrative side of athletics on the national level," said Archer. "I think it will offer not only me personally, but also our institution, a bird's eye view of the developing trends within the NJCAA. It will also serve to supply me with the necessary knowledge to continue to build and maintain the Chattahoochee Tech athletic program to the highest standards."
Archer will serve a two-year term before another vote for the executive positions comes up.
According to region Commissioner (and newly elected NJCAA Second Vice President) David Elder, the Assistant Region Director position's responsibilities include attending all region executive member meetings and serving on various GCAA committees, among other activities.
"There is a lot of behind-the-scenes work involved with the position," said Elder. "But this should allow David to have an influence on what's going on with the conference and from a national standpoint."
Archer has served as the Chattahoochee Tech men's basketball coach and athletics coordinator for the past two years. The Region Director position was awarded to Charles Mullis of Middle Georgia College.
The GCAA is one of 24 NJCAA regions nationwide.
