A panel will interview and make their recommendation of an interim commissioner to the ASA/USA Board of Directors for confirmation. If a qualified candidate is not appointed by the ASA Council Meeting in November, the Board of Directors will make a recommendation to the entire Council regarding whether or not the association is to be merged with another.

The ASA was founded in 1933 and has evolved into the strongest softball organization in the country. The growth and development of the association led the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) to name the ASA as the National Governing Body of Softball, pursuant to the Amateur Sports Act of 1978.
