Apply Now To Join The Americans’ Fan Council

Deadline Is July 18th for the 2020-21 Season

In an effort to build more engagement with the best fans in the ECHL, the Allen Americans are forming the ALLEN AMERICANS FAN COUNCIL heading into the 2020-21 season.

The FAN COUNCIL will be a group of loyal fans who provide feedback to management along with new ideas that aid in the growth and development of the organization, and its ability to exceed expectations by delivering the ultimate fan experience.

“We’re excited to engage a group of our most passionate fans with the creation of the Fan Council”, shares new Team President | Alternate Governor Mike Waddell. “This initiative takes inspiration from a group of fans which has met with team owner Jack D. Gulati periodically over the past three seasons. By meeting on a regular basis and including more fans in the process, our goal is to give our faithful more opportunities to help shape the organization with their opinions.”

Via bi-monthly meetings, the FAN COUNCIL will target visible issues, identifies challenges, and presents ideas to enhance and better the “Americans’ Fan Experience.” 

It is important to convey that the  FAN COUNCIL will not replace direct communication/correspondence between fans and team leadership, but offers a consistent open line of communication from a cross-section of fans with the best interest of the fan experience in mind.

Here are some frequently asked questions and answers about the AFC:


Who is the Allen Americans Fan Council? 

In order to ensure a constructive working advisory board, membership is limited. The board is comprised of no more than 24 members, consisting of a demographic cross-section of fans.

Correspondence and meetings include Allen Americans senior leadership to ensure action items are fulfilled and executed in the vision of the council.

Council members are limited to serve a one-year term.  Following their term a fan may be selected to serve again in the future, but not until they have rotated off for at least one (1) full year.


Why does the Allen Americans have or need a Fan Council?

The Allen Americans care what our fans think, and we act on recommendations that help make the “Americans’ Experience” the best it can be. The Fan Council increases the level of communication and provides us with an immediate sounding board in which to solicit fan opinions and consider fan ideas and suggestions for the future.

Again, please note the board in no way is intended to replace the direct communication between fans and Allen Americans leadership. It only supplements and enhances the fan-club relationship.


What kind of time commitment is necessary to be on the Fan Council?

Bi-Annual Meetings will take place at a location to be determined by the Team President. A private, online Facebook group will serve as an ongoing open line of communication, and involvement/activity is unlimited. Throughout the year, monthly teleconferences also take place, in which council members actively participate in meetings via phone.
