The Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference named a new commissioner Wednesday morning, appointing Erin Lind as the conference's fifth commissioner. Butch Raymond stepped down in January after serving for ten years as the head of the conference.

Lind has been with the NSIC since the summer of 2001, most recently as Associate Commissioner and Senior Woman Administrator.

Lind is a 2001 graduate of Southwest Minnesota State University, where she played basketball and finished as the school's seventh all-time leading scorer with 1,380 points. She earned a master's degree from the University of Minnesota in 2003.
