Board of Directors Nominations are Now Open
Serving on the Board of Directors is the ultimate way to give back to the association and the game as a whole. The elected position will have a six-year cycle on the Board. During that cycle, the elected position will spend four years as Vice President, and then ascend to become President. They then serve a final year on the Board as Past President. We specifically encourage applications from women, minorities, veterans, persons with disabilities, adults of all ages, various geographical regions, and all levels of the game to self-nominate themselves to be considered for United Soccer Coaches Board of Directors election.
This self-nomination process will stay open until 11:59 PM CST, November 30, 2023. Once the nomination questionnaire is completed, it is sent directly to United Soccer Coaches Nominations and Elections Committee who will select the Board of Director candidates to be voted on by United Soccer Coaches Membership.
