From a membership and a board
perspective, it's not the titles that are important, but the duties/responsibilities of
the board member, and ultimately their achievements.
Now thanks to the widespread acceptance of the
Internet among members, we can begin to have better documentation and procedures, now that
documents are always available on-line, relieving subsequent directors from having to
continually hunt down documents and redistribute them.
This document identifies the responsibilities of
each board position.

FPA Wish List
Once the basic responsibilities are
fulfilled above, we can work on other projects such as the examples below. These
tasks are broken out from the above tasks because in the past few years, the FPA has had
difficulty in finding volunteers to complete the must-do tasks above, so these actions
have only been a dream.
Promote $10 membership and free frisbee so we get 500 new casual members,
non-voting unless silver/gold.
Write letters to sponsors, help TDs get sponsorship products and/or cash to aid in financing events.
