GW Athletics Advisory Council

GW Athletics Advisory Council provides volunteer and philanthropic leadership to engage key constituents in GW Athletics and Recreation. The Council achieves this by providing fundraising and constituent outreach to the broader GW Athletics community and by providing insight and guidance to GW Athletics senior leadership and the office of Athletics Development.

Athletics Advisory Council members lead by devoting time, talent and treasure to the department through numerous ways including:

  • making a personal philanthropic investment in the priorities of the department
  • serving as an ambassador and advocate for GW Athletics
  • asking others to join in the effort
  • hosting special engagement events
  • attending important athletic and university functions

The Council is comprised of a cross-section of GW Athletics and Recreation stakeholders with an emphasis on diversity across age, gender, ethnicity, geographic region, profession/industry and sport (with regards to former student-athletes).

The GW Athletics Advisory Council meets three times annually, in both the D.C. metro area and in other geographic regions. Members may serve for four-year renewable terms.

Members include: Sonny Abbasi, Ashley Starks Amin, Andrew Arno, Erin Berry, Debbie Briggs, Anthony Brown, Michael Cerretani, Annemargaret Connolly, Darren Davis, Lisa Debow, Jimmie Dresnick, trustee Allan From, Michael Gettlin, Deborah Golub, Lisa Harwood, Kristie Helfrich, Patrick Holley, Mark Hughes, Rodney Johnson, Steve Kelin, Chuck Merin, Brandon Muir, Lisa Neirotti, Will Ricketson, Jeremy Rohen, Sean Rose, chair Michelle Rubin, Jake Sherman, Carlos Solorzano, Victoria Tigwell, Stefan Triandafilou, Mandisa Turner and David Wilson. .
