MYS volunteers selflessly give of their time so the youth in our community can play soccer. Without their active support, MYS could not serve its membership to the standard it does. One of the many volunteer roles is serving on the MYS Board. Each Board member is elected by the membership at a vote held at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) usually held in March. Board members typically serve a two-year term (and may be re-elected to their position for up to two terms). Any member of MYS may seek election to any open position, whether or not the incumbent is seeking a new two-year term. A Nominating Committee (composed of existing Board members and external individuals) determines which candidates it believes are best qualified to be put on the slate for consideration by the membership at the AGM.
The specific roles that we are seeking to fill include:
More detail on club governance, in general, and the Board, in particular - including current members - is available on the MYS web site.
Should you wish to register your interest in volunteering either in a Board or non-Board capacity (there are many non-Board volunteer opportunities available), or would just like more information, please contact Suzanne Deitch, MYS Vice Chair, at email@example.com. Please include your area(s) of interest and a brief (3-4 sentence) paragraph detailing your skills no later than 1/31/14.
To volunteer, please contact Suzanne Deitch at firstname.lastname@example.org .
When you show up at the field each week, there are goals, the fields are lined and your opponent is ready to play -- behind the scenes many, many volunteer hours are put in to make this somewhat innocuous event happen smoothly (at least most of the time).
With more than 250 teams, 27 fields and players ranging from 5 to 19 years old, we could not make MYS the club it is today without the more than 500 volunteers (coaches, assistant coaches, Age Group Coordinators, Field Committee Members, and much more). Each year we continue to add to our MYS membership and, more than ever, need everyone to pitch in where they can to help us.
Become a Volunteer (coach, assistant coach, manager, etc). You can indicate your interest during registration, or contact us directly. The board member in charge of volunteers is the Vice-Chairman, or you could contact any board member directly responsible for your area of interest.
