Andi Williams Makes USAFL East History

In late December, the Boston Demons Australian Football Club held their Annual General Meeting and made history as they elected the first female Club President, Andi Williams, for the eastern region.

Andi became involved in the Boston Demons Club in 2011 joining Lady Demons’ founder Jen Vogel as the second player for Boston women.  Her involvement off the field has grown over the years beginning with her role as the Social and Sponsorship Coordinator on the Demons’ Board in 2012. She has been essential to the Demons’ successful recruiting efforts, special events, and club cohesion since joining the team. For Andi, vieing for the role of club President seemed like the logical next step after a successful year in the Vice President position during the 2013 season.
