Region 87 - Call for Nominations for Regional Commissioner

Good Evening All, Nominations are now open for the Region 87 Regional Commissioner Position. Greg Powers - our current Regional Commissioner's term expires on March 30. 2019 and we need to have our next commissioner presented to the National Board no later than their January Board Meeting. (Greg has indicated that he is open to continue in that role for the 2019-2021 term but if there are others who are interested - and if the board so chooses - Greg will gladly support the eventually Area approved nominee)

This position is open to any member of our AYSO community who believes that they can embody the role and serve AYSO in an Executive Role and can lead our Region. There will be a secret vote by the Regional Board (the Executive Board Members fulfilling the following roles: Regional Commissioner, Treasurer, Regional Coach Administrator, Regional Referee Administrator, CVPA, Registrar, Safety Director - as registered as volunteers for MY 2018) taken at the December 2018 Board meeting (Tentatively Scheduled for December 3, 2018).

Please see the attached document for the job description for more about what the role entails (the role requires an investment of between 600-800 hours per year). If you are interested in running for the RC position, or know someone in Region 87 who you want to nominate for the role please provide the following information to the Chair of the Nominating Committee - Jared Greene (Info below). Each nominee will have to be approved by the Area Director prior to the election - as we as a region 'nominate' the RC to the Area for their acceptance.
