AYSO Regional Management News- Raise Your Hand!

David Kemp's current term as Regional Commissioner expires in February 29, 2016. The Region 1159 Nominating Commission seeks your input for individuals who would be willing to serve in this and other positions.  If you are interested, or want to nominate someone, or have other comments, please send them to [email protected] or contact any member of the Nominating Commission by January 10, 2016. The next Regional Commissioner will serve a 3 year term, adjusted to end concurrently with other board member terms, July 31, 2019. 


David Kemp has served as RC almost continuously since 1996. He has volunteered again, and is very willing to continue, but feels that new leadership is needed in the near future. David says he will make an early exit if someone wants to be in charge, or wants to join our board for a time in order to get up to speed.

Here is a link to the job description. The time commitment is not small but will be manageable for the right person. Extensive training and resources are available.

The position of Safety Director is vacant. This is a required board position so needs to be filled ASAP. The SD checks the fields and equipment for safety issues, and handles reporting of injuries. Please consider and volunteer as above. Here is a link to the job description.

Other required board positions are filled through July 2016, but 
we would like to expand the management group. We especially need volunteers to help with, or be in charge of 


Marketing/messaging/social media,
Field maintenance/development
Fundraising for new field development
Concessions coordinator
Regional Board Member
Nominating Commission Member

We have a number of strong volunteers in leadership. We need more. Many hands make the work light! If you have interest in helping in any way, or wish to suggest someone for any of these positions, or for another position, please send your suggestion in confidence to [email protected], or directly contact one of the folks on the Nominating Commission.
