Airdrie, Alberta (April 17, 2017) – The Canadian Professional Rodeo Association is pleased to announce that Randa Nugent has come on board as Rodeo Administrator.
From a rodeo family that spans three generations, Nugent has been a member of the CPRA since the early nineties. Randa Nugent served seven years as Ladies Barrel Racing Director and is a former CPRA Cowgirl of the Year.
“I’m passionate about rodeo and the betterment of Pro Rodeo in Canada,” the Water Valley, Alberta resident explains. “Preserving our Western Heritage is an ongoing challenge. I’m think it’s important to continue educating younger generations about the sport of rodeo – including Junior, High School and College Rodeo. I’d like to contribute to that.”
Nugent feels that her experience as a contestant at all levels of rodeo, along with her background on the CPRA Board of Directors will be an asset as she moves into her new role. Completion of two PRCA Judges’ seminars and a significant investment of time on a recent revision of the CPRA rule book will be helpful as well.
As the CPRA Rodeo Administrator, Nugent will liaise with committees in the whole rodeo approval process from start to finish. She will work closely with the CPRA CRES department in setting up rodeo entry dates, performance and slack times, and will help coordinate the full rodeo schedule. The rodeo administrator is also responsible for coordinating with the judging commission to set judges schedules, clinics and interpret and enforce the rules of the association. Nugent begins work immediately.
