USA Ultimate and AUDL leadership met in person for the first time last week and had a productive, 3-hour conversation.
“Among other comments, attendees of the Vision Tour cited a desire for USA Ultimate to communicate more regularly with the AUDL, consider a collaboration and encourage the league to more prominently exemplify USA Ultimate’s values – in particular gender equity and Spirit of the Game.
After gathering and analyzing the data from the Vision Tour, the USA Ultimate Board of Directors voted unanimously in August for its organizational leadership to expand communications with leaders of the AUDL. As a result, board president DeAnna Ball and chief executive officer Tom Crawford traveled to Chicago last week to meet with AUDL Commissioner Steve Gordon and league V.P. of marketing and Madison Radicals owner Tim DeByl.”
