Eastern Washington athletics director to speak at NIC Booster Club Luncheon

Bill Chaves, the athletics director at Eastern Washington University, will be the speaker at the North Idaho College Booster Club Luncheon noon Tuesday, Sept. 27, at the Coeur d’Alene Resort.

Chaves is a two-time recipient of national Athletics Director of the Year honors, and enters his 10th year at the helm of the EWU Athletics Department. He was honored in 2015-2016 for the second time by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) as one of 28 winners of the Under Armour Athletics Director of the Year Award (ADOY). He was one of four athletics directors in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision to be honored. Chaves also earned the honor in the 2012-2013 school year.

Highlighted by the installation of the first-ever red synthetic surface in America, the tenure of Chaves has been punctuated by progress and innovation – but with a definite eye toward the future. Currently, he is playing an integral role in advancing an overall athletics facility vision for the EWU Athletics Department.

In 2015, Chaves was appointed to the NCAA Division I Council representing the Big Sky Conference, and currently serves as the chair of the Women’s Basketball Oversight Committee which reports to the council. Previously, he served on a competition oversight committee.

The NIC Booster Club hosts a luncheon twice a month, on the second and last Tuesday of each month. The special NIC Booster Club lunch menu is usually $10 or less and the public is welcome to attend. NIC coaches will provide updates on recruiting, season sports and upcoming athletic tournaments and NIC Athletics Department events.
