CHRIS LOPEZ – CHAIR
Chris is an Army Brat who was born in San Francisco and now lives in Columbus, GA. The Chapter element of TL’s structure caught his attention, and he joined Terminus Legion at the inaugural match: From there he started the TL Columbus chapter, helped with tailgate setup/planning, leads the pregame marches, and was elected to the TL Board. If you want to find this guy, all you need to do is head to the front of any pre-game march and look for the green goalkeeper jersey.

LISA WILDER – PRESIDENT
ANTHONY LA CAVA – VICE PRESIDENT
I first became a member of TL right before the 2018 season, but attended my first game in 2017 and was immediately addicted. For the 2019 season, I took on the role of Communications and Technology Coordinator and continued as the Technology Coordinator for the 2020 season. As part of my role as your Technology Coordinator, I am the person behind the scenes making sure our virtual watch parties are set up and running, along with recently joining the team that is managing TL involvement in United We Vote. Over my time being heavily involved in TL, I’ve come to appreciate its mission of giving back to the community. Over the past 20 years, outside Atlanta United, I’ve volunteered with the Florida Youth Leadership Forum, a Leadership Camp for High School Students with Disabilities, so you can say giving back to the community is a big part of my life.
