Buffalo FAMbase to help appoint two fans to join Buffalo Fan Alliance Advisory Board

If you’re a Bills fan tired of having no outlet when it comes to the future of the Bills in Buffalo, here’s a real chance to be involved.

We’re collaborating with the Buffalo Fan Alliance to recommend two fan additions to their advisory board. The Buffalo Fan Alliance is a non-profit organization working to create policy to secure the long-term future of the Bills in Buffalo. In addition to me (Del), their advisory board includes Andre Reed, Steve Christie, Luke Russert and other prominent members of the business and political community dedicated to keeping the Bills in Buffalo.

They realize how important it is to have the voice of the fan represented in the process. They reached out to Buffalo FAMbase to help make sure that happens.

If you’re interested in being considered for the appointment, send an approximate 500 word submission to BFAadvisoryboard@billsmafia.com by Tuesday, June 3 at 12:00pm. In your submission, tell us what the Bills in Buffalo mean to you and how you can actively help the effort to protect the team in Buffalo.

Buffalo FAMbase will evaluate the submissions and announce 10 finalists on Wednesday, June 4. From there, it’s up to you to decide who we recommend as the two additions.

NOTE: Voting details have been modified since the original post.

Once we’ve determined the ten finalists, we’ll have an online poll on this website that will allow you to cast your vote.

Over the two weeks following June 4, there will be two ways to vote. You can visit this website and vote in our online poll or you can retweet specifics tweet from our official Twitter account regarding a finalist’s candidacy. The two will be weighted equally and combined to give a final score. For instance, if a finalist finishes 1st in the online poll but 10th in retweets, they’ll get a score of 5.5. Finish 1st in both and they get a score of 1. The two finalists with the lowest final scores will be recommended to be added to the BFA advisory board. In the event of a tie for the 2nd spot, there will be a 24hr runoff on twitter where the candidate with the most RTs of their candidacy wins.

If you think you can help make a difference, here’s the chance to take action. Click here to make your submission. BFAadvisoryboard@billsmafia.com

About Del Reid

Del Reid became a Bills fan shortly after coming into this world, having been raised in a home that actually had a framed picture of OJ Simpson on the wall in the living room (until it came down in 1994). Del has always had a passion for bringing people together to celebrate things they share in common. As a result, he (quite accidentally) ended up co-founding the #BillsMafia movement among Bills fans in social media -- which to this point is the coolest thing that has ever happened to him aside from his relationship with God, his wife, and his two awesome kids.
