Board Of Directors



The GUPA Board of Directors (BOD)  is currently comprised of 9 members. The directors are responsible for overseeing and ensuring that committees are functioning properly. Committees are comprised of volunteers (like you) who have an interest in helping make GUPA awesome.



There are 7 committees that encompass what GUPA is and does.  Each of these committees could use helpful individuals, who would like to see GUPA grow and continue to improve:

League Operations (Day to day stuff that has to happen to make the league possible)

Special Events (Soggy Bottom bowl, Charity Hat Tournament, Rust Never Sleeps, End of season parties)

Promotions (Getting the word out)

Player Liaison (GUPA membership, league registration etc)

Communications and IT (Zuluru, Website, Social Media)

Juniors Program


Please find more detailed descriptions of each further down.

Role of BOD

Oversee Committees

Each director will be assigned committee portfolios based on her/his interests
and expertise.
Each individual director will have discussions with the committee members of
her/his portfolio. The purpose of such discussions will be to keep up to date
with committee activities, assist in problem solving when required, enforce
deadlines, and to ensure committees are working towards objectives.
Each individual director will present discussions with the committees at
executive meetings.
Linking Committees
In order to ensure transparency, directors will keep committee
members informed and updated on GUPA activities through meeting minutes and
postings of the GUPA forum in a timely fashion.
Executive directors will look for commonalities/similar interests between
committees to facilitate joint projects.
