Planning for a New Regional Commissioner Next Spring 2019

Dear Region 13 Families,

My term as Regional Commissioner will come to a close on March 1, 2019, when a new term will begin. In the tradition that we’ve held in Region 13 for decades, I will be looking for a new representative to take my place when that term begins. While the installation of a new RC is still a few months away, I’m beginning preparations for a new RC now, so that we will have a seamless transition into the next term of office.

To support this, the Regional Board is undergoing the vetting process for a new RC now. I’ve asked Dan Jeffries, a long-time board member and the Region’s current Safety Director, to lead our nominating committee. For anyone interested, Dan can give more details on being an RC and on the nomination process. He will accept applications beginning now through December 5. Dan will interview all applicants and will bring recommendations to the Regional Board at our next meeting on Thursday, December 6, when the board will vote on those recommendations.

While the focus of this letter is on the current process of identifying an RC for the next term, we are always looking for volunteers to help us in many other positions on the Board of Directors. If you are interested in joining our Regional Board in any capacity, or if you have any questions or suggestions about any of the positions for which we might recruit now or in the future, please reach out to Dan at

It is an honor and privilege to be your RC, and I look forward to serving you over the next few months with the same energy and zeal as I have brought to this position over the past two years. It’s only by our many efforts working together that AYSO enriches children’s lives — and in this purpose I want to thank you again for having given me the honor to be your RC.

Yours truly,

John Sweet
Regional Commissioner
