Welcome our new Administrative Director, Kristi Prochazka

by Mitch Dion

It is with utmost pleasure that I pass the torch on to Kristi Prochazka, my co-worker these past nine years.

Things have changed from when I first started here 12 years ago. My days were filled with collecting stacks of registration forms from a fax machine, and typing credit numbers into a processing program. Hours of filing await- ed. Social media was barely on the radar, instead we produced three printed newsletters each season. These days we are nearly an ‘e-commerce’ business.




What has not changed is the basic mission of the organization. Kristi is perfectly positioned to take over day to day operations of the Association. She has a complete grasp of the Association’s business. Indeed she has made her- self into one of the top experts in the country in our Association Management Software. She is extremely efficient and professional, and a pleasure to work with.

We are also lucky to have Lynnea Anderson on board. Lynnea seemingly knows every person in the Association, and her knowledge of the on-snow processes and staffing have made her critically important to our Admin team.

I hope you can give Kristi and Lynnea the same support that you have always given me.

I will be helping out during this transitional time as Treasurer. I am grateful to the many fine individu- als who have served as my ‘bosses’ on the PSIA-AASI Board of Directors. Your dedication, consistently positive energy and spirit of volunteerism have mademy time here a joy.

Kristi’s Top 3 Priorities

  1. Know our Passion and stick to our goals.
  2. Build the respect, rapport, and the ambience amongst our Western Division that engages all our members.
  3. Create an environmentthat allows the next generation of snowsport instructors to be successful.
