Eastern Washington University athletics director Bill Chaves has been appointed to the NCAA Division I Administration Cabinet. The group will be part of a reorganized governance structure the NCAA approved in April and will be in charge of committee appointments and membership issues.
“I look forward to serving on this committee,” Chaves said. “The ability to be a part of national issues and bring them back to Eastern and the Big Sky Conference should be beneficial.”
Chaves will begin his term of service on the committee on Sept. 1 and continue through July 1, 2011. The chair of the group will be Rob Halvaks, the associate commissioner of the Big West Conference.
