The Board of Directors :: The ABASA Board of Directors is made up of ABASA players who volunteer their time to make the Association a more organized, efficient and community based home for all adults in the Asheville-Buncombe county area. Meetings are held every month, with minutes recorded, topics tackled and problems solved. With each member holding their own title and skill set, they work together as a team to provide a safe, affordable and legit landscape for every soccer player to continue to play the beautiful game, no matter age, skill or schedule.
Board members serve for 2 year periods, but may remain on if they are elected again by the other Board members and no other ABASA player voices an interest to join the Board.
