"I'm deeply honored to have been selected to lead my D-III colleagues during the 2023-24 academic year," said Mason. "As we move into a new academic year, one of my goals as NADIIIAA President will be to focus our organization's attention on building a strong, united future for Division III and our NADIIIAA membership."

Mason, who came to Berry in 2019, is one of the few female African American athletic administrators who lead a department nationwide, Mason was the Nike Executive Director of the Year for NCAA D-III colleges in 2022-23 as selected by Women Leaders in College Sports.

Berry's athletic director will lead a newly expanded NADIIIAA Board of Directors. The new board also features three vice presidents, six at-large members, and the immediate past president.

Mason will be leading the board and NADIIIAA on the following overarching topics for the athletic year:
  • Growing athletics director leadership and involvement
  • Increasing overall membership
  • Surveying the membership to add value
  • Strengthening and expanding collaborative efforts to enhance the voice of the membership

"It will take all of us to move our organization and Division III athletics forward," said Mason in a letter to the NADIIIAA constituency.
