Hi everyone, this announcement will be the first of many discussing changes to our community’s top-level leadership. We believe these changes will have a positive impact on how quickly and effectively higher-ups work with staff and the community. The changes are as follows:
We are introducing a new top-level authority which we have chosen to call Council. This group of people will set the agenda and direction of GFL. The distinction from the old Director role is that Council members will not inherently be responsible for the day-to-day operations of GFL, and only the Council as a whole can make decisions, i.e. individual Council members cannot make decisions on their own. The Council, as of right now, consists of the Board of Directors and representatives from our larger divisions.
Let’s talk about the “new” Board of Directors. The Board of Directors will be responsible for GFL on a daily basis and can make decisions that do not go against the Council's direction. However, there are some things only the Council can decide on. The Executive Director is the chairman of the board and has the overall responsibility for GFL on a daily basis. The rest of the Directors are each responsible for an area of their own.
Without further ado let’s introduce the initial roster for the Board of Directors:
- Executive Director: @Nick
- Director of Communication: @Shuruia
- Director of Divisions: @FrenZy
- Director of Teams: @Ben
- Director of Tech: @Xy
The Directors will be joined by the following two division representatives to form the first Council roster:

With the Council introduced, we will soon release a schedule for meetings which anyone from the community can attend. We will be looking for members of the community to join the council in the coming weeks. More information about this will come in future announcements.
