Gino D’Ippolito for the National Soccer Hall of Fame

NISOA National Assessor and friend of the NY Metro ISOA chapter, Gino D’Ippolito is on the 2008 National Soccer Hall of Fame ballot in the “Builder” category. Many of us have had the pleasure and honor of working with Gino over the years in his many roles on and off the soccer field here in the New York metropolitan area. Gino was a FIFA International referee for many years as well as a distinguished NISOA , NASL and MISL referee. While Hall of Fame voting is not open to the public, please visit the National Soccer Hall of Fame web site and participate in the informal poll. Good luck, Gino!!

Jerry Stoopack

Jerry Stoopack has informed the Board that he will be inactive this season. As such, Jerry is not eligible to retain his position as a Director on the Executive Board. Randy Vogt has accepted the nomination to the Executive Board as a Director to fill the vacancy.

Jerry’s service to the chapter is too extensive and distinguished to summarize briefly. He is the chief architect of the chapter’s constitution and led the Eastern ISOA negotiating team for the current agreement we have with ECAC. We are extremely fortunate that Jerry intends to remain available to the chapter to lend guidance and advice while he is inactive.
