Treasurer: Stephen Weber – Steve started playing squash at the Nielsen Tennis and Squash facility (only 25 cents per court!) of the University of Wisconsin (Madison) while working SteveWeberPhotoforNCSWebsitefor his Ph.D. in economics in the late Sixties. It was an easy transition from playing other wall games like handball and racquetball, and he has never looked back. Upon moving to the DC area in 1975 he joined the Regency Sport & Health Club where he played hardball, but was eventually persuaded by the late Jeff Fisher to switch to the international softball game. In the early Nineties he joined the Potomac Squash Club nearer his job as economist with the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Since retiring he has had time to improve his game under his mentor, Shahid Khan, and to serve as Treasurer of NCSRA.

VP Women: AJ Copeland – AJ started playing squash (hardball) at boarding school in 1975, and played through college on the Brown varsity women’s team. She played sporadically Ajand then finally not at all while in medical school and residency, and picked up the game again in 1996 (now softball, of course). She was a member at Potomac Squash Club since moving back to the DC area in 2002 and at Results since 2010. She has played in the NCS Leagues intermittently, frequently in the Ladies’ League, and has played Howe Cup every year since moving back to DC. She joined the NCSRA Board in August 2007.
