USAFL Seeks New Treasurer

The USAFL are seeking applications for the Executive Board position of Treasurer beginning December 2013. Keith Nelson, the current Treasurer, has advised the board he will be stepping down from the position. Keith has currently held the position since June 2012.

The USAFL Executive Board would like to extend a big thank-you to Keith for his services and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

State of the USAFL

Over the past year, the USAFL Executive Board has been hard at work instituting best practices for non-profits and creating systems to uphold league rules and regulations/policies. While the league hovers around 1,000 annual members, the USAFL is advancing as an organization. As a better organization we can be poised for more league growth. We must have one before the other. 

The past 24 months board activities focused on the non-profit aspect of the league ensuring the organization is well prepared to answer the IRS if an audit occurred.
