Big Apple Softball League is run by committees of volunteers (see the current List of Board Members) and we are opening nominations for the board positions entering new terms for this upcoming season. Board positions are a great way to get more involved in the league!

The current Positions Open for Nomination are:

  • All Division Representative Positions (1 Year Term)
  • Assistant Commissioner (Open) (2 Year Term)
  • Assistant Commissioner (Women+) (2 Year Term)

Important things to Note:

  • If you think you have what it takes to run for a position you can nominate yourself!
  • If you would like to be a division rep you must actively be playing in that division during your term!
  • If two or more people accept nominations for a position we will organize an anonymous electronic vote
  • We will announce the new board members at the Awards Party.
  • If you have any questions reach out to the nomination committee (It is made up of board members not currently up for reelection so our current Commissioner Mike & Secretary Emma) at nominations@bigapplesoftball.com
