CENTERVILLE, Mass. (Aug. 30, 2011) – ECFC Commissioner Julie Muller has been named the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) female administrator of the year for the 2010-11 academic year.

Muller, who is also the commissioner of the NCAA Division III North Atlantic Conferenc was the NAC’s first full-time lead administrator when she was hired in 2005 and guided the ECFC through formation and recognition as a DIII single sport conference in 2008.

Muller played an integral role in keeping the NAC stable during a state of flux, when the conference went from 13 members to its current 10-school alignment. She is responsible for the day-to-day operations for 15 conference sports, including the responsibilities of scheduling, administration of conference grant and awards programs, working with the Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC), and conference initiatives such as membership.

Over the past four years, Muller worked with eight institutions on the creation of the ECFC, a single-sport coalition which began its first season of competition in 2009. She coordinated the creation of league bylaws, website and logo branding, and a competitive inaugural season that culminated in the first football championship.

Muller got her start in intercollegiate athletics as a field hockey student-athlete at Farleigh Dickinson University – Florham. She also worked at the Division III institution as field hockey assistant coach before being elevated to the head coaching position and to Associate Athletic Director/Senior Woman Administrator. She held the job title of Assistant Athletic Director for Student-Athlete Services at Division I Stony Brook University from 2000-04, where she continues to serve as an adjunct faculty member in coaching education.

She currently serves on several committees, including the NCAA Division IIII Interpretations and Legislation and NACWAA Nominating committees.  Muller was recently selected to serve as the vice president for the DIII Commissioners Association.
