How NOCSAE and NAERA brought the recertification problem to a "head"
"The reconditioners were viewed as rag pickers," reports Byron Goldman, Executive Director of the National Athletic Equipment Reconditioners Association (NAERA).
Because youth, high school, and college teams were using a large number of reconditioned helmets, the Board decided in 1976 to include a NAERA representative as a Board member.
NAERA's ability to focus on the health and safety issues of the student-athlete caught the attention of athletic programs nationwide.
"The development of NAERA and its professional approach has a lot to do with how our industry is now perceived," Don Gleisner says.
