Michelle Meadows joined the NJCAA in June 2022 as the NJCAA Vice President for Operations and COO. Meadows will manage and lead budget operations for all NJCAA entities, assist the three National Office divisions to execute the association's five-year strategic plan, and oversee day-to-day National Office operations.   
Meadows joined the NJCAA staff after serving as the Athletics Director at Longwood University in Farmville, VA, since May 2019. Meadows joined the Lancers' athletic department in 2005 and played an integral role in the behind-the-scenes operations at Longwood in various areas including academic services, NCAA compliance, scholarships, business operations, human resources, and facility operations. Her efforts played a vital role in Longwood's athletic department's transition to the NCAA Division I level and move into the Big South Conference in 2007.
During the 2021-22 academic year, the Lancers experienced one of its most successful years since the DI transition including Big South championship titles in men's and women's basketball, hosting the college's first ESPNU men's basketball game, and posting the department's best academic performance in the Division I era with a 3.21 department GPA.  Throughout Meadows' tenure at Longwood, the Richmond, VA native played a pivotal role in several large-scale facility improvements including the acquisition and renovation of the Barlow Academic Center, resurfacing of the Elizabeth Burger Jackson Field, construction of the Longwood Tennis Courts, development of the Golf Performance Center, and the construction of the Joan Perry Brock Center to date.
On a national level, Meadows recently completed her fourth and final term as an NCAA Softball Selection Committee member.  Along with nine other administrators from around the country, Meadows and the committee were responsible for the selection of the 64-team field and execution of the Women's College World Series.  Most recently, the committee's work led to the expansion of the Women's College World Series to nine days to more closely mirror the Men's College World Series.
