Alan Rogan steps down as CCAA President

Lakeland College Athletic Director Alan Rogan has decided to not seek another term as the President of the Canadian College Athletic Association.

Rogan, who was elected in 2018 as the CCAA’s 13th president, has served his entire two-year tenure and has decided not to run a second time. He will be succeeded by Champlain College’s Vince Amato, who was VP of Governance on the CCAA board and named Athletic Director of the Year in 2014.

“I’ve been around the table for a long time,” Rogan explains, “we have a lot of young leadership coming up. I think sometimes people stay in  positions for a little too long when we have good, young energetic people willing to step up and take on those roles.”

During Rogan’s time at the helm, the CCAA saw the opening of a new conference division, the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference. He helped develop the next four-year strategic plan for Canada’s college athletics and was a part of guiding the CCAA during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Both the CCAA and his successor Vince Amato have praised his calm and analytical approach to tackling issues, and his devotion to making sure the organization works as a team.

Rogan says he isn’t one to talk about himself, but he’s hopeful he’s made an impact.

“You always like to think that you left a position in a little better place than it was when you first got there. There’s been a lot of presidents before me that have done some incredible work with the CCAA. I hope that as people look at what I left behind, that I made it a little bit better than it was before.”

Rogan has accepted a request to stay on the CCAA board for the next year as VP of Governance, alongside his role as Lakeland’s Athletic Director.
