I have a new job

I am so very excited to announce that as of Oct. 13, I will be the new Executive Director of the Arlington Soccer Association. This is the perfect opportunity for my to combine my work experience and my education (I have a Masters in Sports Administration) with one of my true passions, soccer. I played in college and still play several times a week (which may change since I will most likely be a touch busier.)

I still plan on writing this blog. My guess is that you will see the topics change slightly to focus less on membership and more on overall association management areas.

Thank you to all who have helped me along the way. I don't want to list names for fear of leaving anyone out, because Lord knows there are a lot.

Wish me luck!

Congratulations, Matt. When I took a job for a running association, people were surprised there would be an organization for runners (there's an association for everything).

Maybe team sports seem more logical to some people. Whatever.

Have fun!
