Message from the President

PeggieHello NBS family and friends!

I am so honored, humbled and excited to be serving as the
new president of the National Brotherhood of Skiers. What a
fabulous organization…rich in history with a bright future and
endless possibilities!  Thank you to everyone for your support, I
promise to give it my best!

For those who do not know me, please allow me to tell you a few things about myself. My first ever ski outing was with the NBS at an Eastern Region Winter Fest.  It was at Sugarbush, VT in 2000 where I learned to ski, and both fell in love with skiing and the NBS right then and there!   I was given a warm NBS welcome from the beginning (which is hard to resist!) and I still hear the same comment from our new members today!  Our love for the sport, our youth and each other truly makes our organization unique.  Shortly after my first ski trip, I assisted with the formation of the Nubian Empire Ski Club, in Albany, NY where I served as its founding President for 5 years.  I then moved on to become the Eastern Region Director and subsequently became Eastern Region Vice President totaling over 10 years of regional and national work and responsibilities.  It is from these experiences I feel confident in my well-rounded perspective of the NBS and all it encompasses, to move us forward, together, on this journey.

We all should be so very proud of the NBS history…a legacy we would not have had the opportunity to experience had it not been for the vision of our founders and hard work of the countless volunteers over 43 years.  I applaud all that have come before me and those still to come! There are countless opportunities to become a volunteer within our organization and I hope that YOU will want to be one of them. Please let me know your skill set and interest, and let’s make it happen!  Not a member?  There are almost 60 clubs throughout the country that you can join.  Remember, we are a volunteer organization and one person can make a difference!

As we move forward, I will remain open to suggestions from NBS members.  Please feel free to reach out and share your thoughts and ideas.  And let us all remember (and tell everyone you know) that our main event, the NBS Black Summit, is a fundraiser for our youth and introduction to winter sports programs!  We have supported and will continue to support our youth throughout the country, at every level, to accomplish our mission:

 “To identify, develop and support athletes of color who will WIN international and Olympic winter sports competitions representing the United States and to increase participation in winter sports.”

I look forward to seeing everyone at the NBS Black Summit for our annual fundraiser in Keystone, Colorado on February 25 – March 4, 2017!!

Warm Regards,

Peggie  A. Allen
