The declaration form for aspiring candidates for NGFFL commissioner for the 2013 / 2014 term is now available. Check it out. It asks aspiring candidates to answer a number of questions to illustrate that they’d do as NGFFL leader. Candidates have until August 17 to fill out the form. The answers will be shared with member city “City Leaders” once the nominating period closes. The election process and schedule can be found here.
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.
Grab a Miller Lite and take a seat. This month’s update is jam-packed with all sorts of news and announcements, from an explanation of changes to Gay Bowl, to the announcement of nominees to the Hall of Fame, to an official THANK YOU to MillerCoors for their investment in our community!
We also note and mourn the passing of two members of our community: Michael Jazmin of San Diego, and Tim Lipka of Washington, DC. Michael and Tim were well loved, and they will be deeply, deeply missed.
The NGFFL is proud to announce a stellar cast of ten nominees for the 2012 Class of the NGFFL Hall of Fame! These ten men represent some of the best athletes, organizers, and people you’ll find, and their service and excellence at the national and local levels should inspire all of us to work hard and give back. The election process is intended to honor the best of the best, but the Board is confident that all of the nominees are worthy of recognition. Congratulations to the nominees, and thank you to those who nominated them!
