Leadership

Board Members

The Terminus Legion Board is composed of five members. Board Members are elected by TL membership and serve staggered two year terms. The role of the Board is to help oversee the direction and efforts of Terminus Legion for the benefit of its members and Atlanta soccer.

  • Chris Lopez - Board Member

    Chairman

    Show bio »

    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.

  • Hollis Brown - Board Member

    Hollis was born in England but has spent most his life here in the USA, Georgia more specifically. Hollis is now a mail carrier during the day for USPS. He started following soccer at the age of 10, played soccer since 2001 and continues to play now.

    Hollis is a huge fan of the sport and when Atlanta finally received an MLS team he was ecstatic. Hollis found Terminus Legion when researching about the new MLS team and dove right in. Hollis was among the first to represent Atlanta United and Terminus Legion in tattoo form (crazy right!). Hollis is a proud member of the TL family and wouldn't have it any other way.

    As I lifelong soccer fan and 15-year ATLien, I longed for an Atlanta MLS team for over a decade while playing in adult leagues around the city, meeting others of the same mindset. Furthermore, I did everything in my power to grow the game, whether in my own personal group of friends or to strangers wherever, all in hopes of building the groundswell of support for a successful MLS team (little did I know just how explosive the ATL support was gonna be, but we expected the worst).

    I have been a Terminus Legion member virtually since inception and creation,  and I started volunteering at beer fests, footgolf and other TL events since 2014. I have been present at every major ATLUTD event, including expansion announcement, name/crest reveal, and jersey announcement and have been captain and a two-year member of the TL soccer team. I have also headed fund-raising efforts for both the SG Tournament and the Black Tie Soccer team, and currently manage sponsor and partner relations for TL.

    I would like to keep TL moving forward and well organized. I feel like these are the first steps to success and can make things a lot easier. I really love this organization, but feel like we sometimes take a step back looking too far into the past. Reflection is fine, and needed, but it is important to always move forward and focus on improving.I feel like the communication between the board, leadership, and members is key to eliminating confusing decisions, and helps making everyone feel included in the decision making process. I think I would be an asset to the board because I am very organized, have a strong voice, and have always been a “go-getter.” I am a good listener and team player, but not afraid to insert my thoughts on matters. I look forward to bringing in some fresh ideas to make TL the best it can possibly be for our members and the team.

    While not the most verbal of members, I’ve volunteered at nearly all of TL’s events since the beginning of the 2017 season. Most of you will recognize me if you’ve ever come by our main table at tailgates. I’m the one helping you to find your way – whether that’s getting you signed up to join, purchasing a t-shirt to show your support, or literal directions to the beer tent – I hope you’ve not gotten lost on my watch (for too long, anyway!). Whether it’s Terminalia, or the next charity poker event, I hope to keep serving TL, and more importantly, the community. I plan to continue in these roles, but would like to add to that the opportunity to serve you in a leadership capacity. As such, I would like to contribute to the overall strategic mission of TL by serving on the Board of Directors. With your support, I hope to continue serving TL in our mission of support, service, and community.

    Secretary

    Show bio »

    Robyn is a Jersey girl who has lived in GA for 10+ years. She loves soccer, handegg (Go Big Blue!) and her dog.

    Her dad is from Argentina, so soccer is in her blood. She spent many weekends growing up watching her younger brother play in soccer tournaments all over NJ. Robyn’s little bro now works for MLS, so all those weekends must have been worth it!

    One of the original co-founders, Robyn is as much as an executive as she is a den mother. Robyn is in charge of scheduling leadership meetings, publishing documents and notes and keeping the group organized. She also assists in running the tailgates at United games.
