Bouchard-Hall became CEO of USAC in June 2015 and has since made it clear the governing body will now travel in a different direction. It will provide better sport development through amateur support and will devote more resources to clean sport.

The financial changes come on the heels of a recent announcement USAC will have a $1.2 million dollar budget shortfall in 2015.
