We have a few announcements about new board members, open positions, and the upcoming season that we’d like to share with you.
New Board Members and Open Positions
In the spring, we took nominations for open board positions. We received single nominations for several positions, making elections un-needed.
Please welcome new board members:
President- Margy Gentile
Vice President- Jessica Hendricks
Secretary- Linda Swan (returning)
Founders Chair- Christine Couteau
New Player Chair- Bailey Siewert
Webmaster- Heidi Faith (returning)
These new board members are joined by our existing board member Jasmine Hellings (Treasurer).
Many thanks to Gina Sanders, Katie Holcomb, and the rest of last season’s board members for all the work they put in for the league!
There are still several open positions we’d like to fill, so please contact us if you are interested in becoming involved: Marketing Chair and Umpires Chair. For Marketing Chair, we’re looking for somebody savvy with social media to get the word out about the league through Facebook, Twitter, etc. The Umpire Chair is a critical position in charge of scheduling league umpires (no umpiring skills are necessary for this position. There will be plenty of support from umpiring vets, like Christine Couteau, to help with connecting with the pool of qualified umpires).
We are continuing to work on scheduling our upcoming season. We have been talking with Stanford coaches and facilities and are optimistic that we will be able to secure time for a full season on the Stanford turf. However, we will not likely know for sure if we have the Stanford field for another month or so and we are evaluating other options, like the new Cal varsity turf, in the meantime in case any issues come up with the Stanford turf. It is our goal to have the full season on the books by the end of August before people take off for Labor day and to begin the season on or around September 13.
We will keep you all posted and look forward to playing with you all this fall,
