He continued his involvement by serving (secretary) on the board of the Philadelphia Lacrosse Association, writing the by-laws for the newly formed US Lacrosse in 1998, and serving on the boards of US Lacrosse and the US Lacrosse Foundation, along with various lacrosse committees, for all 16 years that US Lacrosse has been in existence. Sharing reflections of Berger with the 50 guests were his great friend, Rich Kimball, and his son, Ryan Berger. In honor of the occasion, Berger donated an early Choctaw lacrosse stick to the collection at the National Lacrosse Museum.
