We made it a double.

We painted tifo, we sang songs, we supported the Thorns.

We went to Orlando, and we brought back the NWSL Championship trophy.

And now we rest. Kind of. For a few minutes. There is always work to be done.

The application period is open for candidates for the 107ist board. The 107ist, for those of you who may just be joining us, is the operational umbrella covering both the Rose City Riveters and the Timbers Army. It’s what allows us to do all the things we do at the scale at which we want to do them.

Applications are open until Friday, November 10, at midnight and can be found HERE. You must have a current, paid 107ist membership to run.

Being a member of the board isn’t easy and it isn’t always fun, but the board is essential and this year, four positions in the 11-member group are open. Newly elected board members will serve a three-year term, from January 2018 through December 2020.

The candidate forum, where candidates will answer questions from their future constituents, will be November 19 at Artists Repertory Theatre beginning at 10:30 a.m.

Whether voter or candidate, consider carefully. You have the ability to shape the organization going forward.
