Browns Fan Advisory Board is Looking for Fan Feedback


Earlier this year, the Cleveland Browns announced that they would be creating a "Browns Fan Advisory Board." The primary requirements needed to apply for a spot on the board were to be a Browns fan who regularly attends games, and to be highly active on social media. The board members would also need to be able to meet in Cleveland four times a year, and would be required to keep certain information from the meetings confidential.

Kevin Kleps from Crain's Cleveland Business had the pleasure of sitting in on the first meeting this past week from a reporter's perspective. I encourage everyone to read his article here. Kleps acknowledge's that Crain's was invited to sit in on the first meeting, with the knowledge that certain subjects were off the record.

According to the article, there were close to 1,500. The original aim was to trim the board down to 12 members, but VP of Fan Experience and Marketing Kevin Griffin said that since there were 20 candidates they really wanted to have on the board, they decided to go with that amount. From reading the article on Crain's, you can tell that this is going to be a great way for the Browns' leadership to be transparent with the fans. Therefore, it's important for the larger body of fans to make sure those 20 board members represent the Cleveland faithful proud.

On Twitter, several members of the group have already agreed upon using the hashtag "#BFAB" and are encouraging fan feedback. I have sought out as many of the Twitter handles as possible from the board below; feel free to contact any of them with things you would like to be brought up at the meeting.
