The forum includes a president or chancellor from each of the 32 Division I Conferences.
CAA Commissioner Joe D’Antonio has announced that Elon University President Connie Ledoux Book will serve as the conference’s representative on the NCAA Division I Presidential Forum.
The Presidential Forum is comprised of one president or chancellor from each of the 32 Division I Conferences. The purpose of the forum is to assist the NCAA Division I Board of Directors in accomplishing its strategic mission in the Division I governance structure and help ensure that the NCAA core value involving presidential leadership of intercollegiate athletics at the campus, conference and national level is achieved.
“I would like to thank President Book for her willingness to represent the CAA on the NCAA Division I Presidential Forum,” D’Antonio said. “She brings an extensive array of experience in higher education to this role, and the entire NCAA membership will benefit from her knowledge and leadership.”
President Book began service as Elon’s president on March 1, 2018, bringing more than 20 years of higher education leadership to the university. She was named Elon’s ninth president after serving as provost of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, and previously serving 16 years as an Elon faculty member and senior administrator.
“I look forward to advancing the mission of supporting our student-athletes and representing the CAA on the important challenges and opportunities in college sports today,” Book said.
