DC Stoddert Soccer

Board of Directors

DC Stoddert Soccer is guided by a Board of Directors that provides governance and oversight of the club’s office personnel, soccer education programs, and outreach services to children and families in the District of Columbia.
The Board meets monthly to discuss operational, programmatic, and other governance matters related to the club’s activities.

According to the organization’s bylaws, DC Stoddert board members are comprised of  between  seven and 15 voting directors. The Executive Director serves as a non-voting, ex officio director.

Voting directors are elected by the DC Stoddert Soccer membership during the club's Annual General Meeting from the slate of nominees proposed by the Board of Directors. Officers of the corporation are elected during the first Board of Directors meeting of the calendar year. 

Members of the Board also volunteer their time to participate on Board and Advisory committees that pertain to the mission and services of the club.  These committees include Audit, Risk, Executive, and Nominating.

To contact one or more members of the DC Stoddert Board of Directors, please email the Executive Director Jennifer Gootman at [email protected].

On August 23, 2019, the DC Stoddert Board of Directors voted to remove Article IV from DC Stoddert By-Laws thereby invoking DC Code Section 29-405.02 (printed below), while it undertakes a thorough review of the By-Laws of the Corporation, consistent with best practice for biennial by-law review. The Board hopes to obtain input from members prior to the completion of the by-law review. More information on how to provide your input will be posted on the Club’s website after the next Board meeting in September 2019.

(b) Unless otherwise provided in the articles of incorporation or bylaws, a demand for a special meeting may be revoked by notice to that effect received by the membership corporation from the members calling the meeting prior to the receipt by the corporation of demands sufficient in number to require the holding of a special meeting.

(c) If not otherwise fixed under § 29-405.03 or § 29-405.07, the record date for determining members entitled to demand a special meeting shall be the date the first member signs a demand.

(e) Only business within the purpose or purposes described in the meeting notice required by § 29-405.05(c) may be conducted at a special meeting of the members.

(f) The articles of incorporation or bylaws may provide that a special meeting of members does not need to be held at a geographic location if the meeting is held by means of the Internet or other electronic communications technology in a fashion pursuant to which the members have the opportunity to read or hear the proceedings substantially concurrently with their occurrence, vote on matters submitted to the members, pose questions, and make comments.
