First the committee has a new chairperson - Gavin Graham.
Gavin was voted into the role in November after Lee Stevens resigned. Lee decided to return to Australia and we thank him for his efforts in helping the sport progress and the officials ranks grow.
Gavin has been part of the Officials group for the past three years and recently as the equipment officer for the committee.
Gavin has organised the officials and has the support of the following officials in these positions:
- Don McMillan - Southern Supervisor
- Paul Brownd - Marketing
- James Lissaman & Lee Stevens - Rules Committee
In the December meeting the committee voted to align the name of the committee to the sport as it is known here and is now the American Football Officials Aotearoa (AFOA).
