He said when he was given the job the he had little idea as to what an athletic director did. In his efforts to learn what to do, Elmer became involved in the development of the first national athletic directors’ group – the National Council of Secondary School Athletic Directors. It is one of a number of councils of the American Alliance of Health, P.E., Recreation, and Dance. It is headquartered in Washington, D.C.
