What does a League Director do? 

The League Director is accountable for overseeing league operations, promoting and maintaining NICA’s mission, core values and culture in the State of Wisconsin. The League Director is a collaborative and inspirational leader who works closely with the Wisconsin League Board of Directors and other advisors to expand student-athlete and community participation while maintaining financial sustainability of the organization. Candidates need to be self-starters that lead by example, but don’t do the work for others.

What is the typical time commitment?

Of course, time and effort vary by week and by season. This is not a typical “job”. Busy weeks will entail 50+ hours, working with volunteers, often outside the 9-5. Five race weekends in the fall are a highlight of league operations. Presenting, public speaking, leading meetings, recruiting, soliciting donations, and frequent communications with coaches & staff are key responsibilities. The ideal candidate has a demonstrated track record of being able to prioritize, focus, delegate and orchestrate multiple work streams with a flexible schedule and efficient communication.

What is the compensation?

A starting salary is available and can be provided by request. Working at the Wisconsin League will require a strong passion for the mission and people involved. Compensation can increase as the league grows and increases its revenues. Additional funding opportunities may be available in the near term to compensate the right candidate.

What backgrounds do League Directors bring to the role? Where do they come from?

Anywhere and all over. League Directors are educators, business leaders, military veterans, philanthropists, sales people, and more. They are all passionate, proven leaders who ca build and mobilize within their community.

Who will I report to? Who do I get to work with?

The Wisconsin League Director is a NICA national employee reporting to the Wisconsin League Board. The NICA national President provides input to the League Director’s annual review. League Directors work with national leaders and experts to translate national know-how into local capability.
