The NCAA is a membership-driven association and is governed by more than 150 committees with almost 1,500 committee members from NCAA institutions and conferences. Association-wide committees are comprised of individuals from all three divisions and consider issues that affect the NCAA across all divisions. In addition, each division has a committee structure in place that addresses issues from a divisional perspective. The respective committees serve as a governing body for rules and championships for each sport. The members will serve as members through the summer of 2024.
Buddie will serve as one of ten members in the Division I Baseball committee. Each of the five baseball regions (East, South, Midwest, Southeast and West) are represented with one member and five members are selected at large. The group will review plans and issues within the frame of Division I Baseball before forwarding proposals to the NCAA Division I Oversight Committee.
As a member of the Women's Basketball Oversight Advancement Committee, Fowler joins a group tasked with developing plans to grow the game of basketball through student-athlete experience, ticket sales and strategy, budget and revenue generation, marketing, attendance, TV ratings, fan experience and site selection.
