Following a vote of city leaders, Joe Cooper of Denver and Wayne Knaub of Philadelphia have been elected to serve two-year terms on the Board of the National Gay Flag Football League! Joe and Wayne assume the spots vacated by out-going board members Shane Kinkennon of Denver and Thurman Williams of DC.
Joe and Wayne were both founding partners of their respective city leagues, and both intend to spread our sport to more people in more places across North America.
At September’s City Leaders’ meeting in Denver, Jared Garduno of Phoenix was unanimously chosen to serve as the NGFFL’s third commissioner, following the footsteps of league co-founder Jim Buzinski of Los Angeles and Shane. Joining Jared, Joe, and Wayne for service in 2013 are Phil Clawson of Boston, Sam Lehman of New York, and Chris Cormier and Patrick McIntyre, both of DC. The new board will officially convene this month.
BIG THANKS are due to Shane and Thurman for their stellar service. And congratulations to Jared for his new responsibilities and Joe and Wayne on their new roles!

It’s commissioner-election time. The NGFFL commissioner, the organization’s top official, is to be elected every even-numbered year at Gay Bowl, according to the organization’s Bylaws. (Then later this fall, two more of the total seven elected Board seats will be voted on.) The Board has just distributed to City Leaders the process that the commissioner election will follow this year. Prospective candidates will be able to declare their candidacy beginning this Friday, July 27 (via a Survey Monkey form that will be published on Friday). Candidate declarations are due August 17.
Is it you? The NGFFL is seeking leaders who are committed to taking our great sport to more LGBT people in more places. Check it out.
