2019 Tribe Board Candidates
Hi Tribe! As our club grows, so does our need to find positive, energetic volunteers to take the lead.
As current Board Directors end their terms, it is critically important that we find replacements who share their vision for a positive Youth sports experience, as well as their willingness to dedicate time to pushing forward on key projects to reach that vision. In selecting new Directors, we want to keep an eye towards a balance of parents with older and younger players, and both boys and girls.
The following volunteers have expressed a strong interest in either continuing or becoming elected members of the Truckee Tribe Board of Directors. At the request of the current Tribe Board, each has submitted a brief overview of his or her respective reasons for agreeing to accept the responsibilities that accompany Board membership.
Please take a moment to review their statements prior to our upcoming election, which will be announced soon. Additionally, if any of you are interested a position on the Tribe Board, please contact us via email and we'll be sure your name is added to future ballots.
The candidates, below, are presented incumbents first, then new candidates. We have three current Tribe Board members up for re-election and three new candidates, for a total of six. There are five seats to be filled by this election. Results will likely be very close, so any candidate not formally added to the Tribe Board is certainly encouraged to actively participate in Board meetings and get invovled with projects required to keep the Tribe running smoothly.
James "Cliffy" Clifford - Incumbent up for re-election
Kristi Hood - Incumbent up for re-election
Originally from upstate New York, I moved to Tahoe after graduating from Ithaca College with a degree in International Business. I've enjoyed living in Tahoe since 1996 where I can fulfill my love of the mountains, alongside my husband, Randy, and our two daughters. I'm enthusiastic about the Tahoe lifestyle and know the importance of finding a good life/work balance. I find the new energy of the Truckee Tribe very exciting and would love to help continue to grow The Tribe and Lacrosse in Truckee.
