The role of Commissioner of Dodgeball comes with quite the list of responsibilities and obligations. The ideal candidate will continue the work to create a place for sports, community, family, and acceptance. Individuals may nominate themselves to fill the vacant position -or- the community can nominate a fellow individual that would be a great lead for the next two seasons of dodgeball.
Applicants should have previous participation in Stonewall Dodgeball Pittsburgh and/or equivalent & justified experience with the sport. Availability to actively be involved in Stonewall Alliance Board meetings during the sport’s season and off-season, and events. Nominees must be in good standing within the community. The application will be open from today, July 26, until Friday, August 12 at 11:59 p.m.
Commissioner Selection Process
Once all the nominations have been submitted, the Stonewall Alliance Board will select and interview qualified candidates, and a vote will occur to select the next commissioner (as long as more than one individual applies). Individuals that are eligible to participate in the election and vote are:
- All Dodgeball Captains from the 2022 season
- All Members (non-nominee) of the Dodgeball 2022 Leadership Committee
- All Active Members of the Stonewall Alliance Board
Each of the above members will be allowed one vote, regardless of holding multiple positions. (i.e. if you are a captain and sit on the board, you only will have one vote; etc.)
The board feels this is an exciting time to offer the Stonewall Community a chance to participate in deciding the next leaders of their organization. The application process is open, so consider nominating yourself, or nominating a peer that would make a great commissioner to organize and grow our Stonewall Dodgeball Pittsburgh.
