Considered among the best brokers in the United States by Barron’s Magazine, Keefe Gorman leads as managing director of investments at Merrill Lynch. Aside from Merrill Lynch, he enjoys snow skiing. Keefe Gorman, a former professional, maintains membership with the US Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA).

The USSA offers five sports committees dedicated to planning and developing snow programs for its members. Among the groups is the Freestyle & Freeskiing Sport Committee (FFSC), which works in partnership with USSA and its chief executive officer to shape activities.

The FFSC consists of USSA freestyle and freeskiing members who are eligible to represent the group in a variety of capacities, including freestyle or freeskiing program director; aerials, moguls, or skicross subcommittee chairs; and USSA board, International Ski Federation (FIS), or divisional representatives. With the exception of at-large members and athlete representatives, each role serves a two-year term. All have similar goals of instilling policies and strategies that promote the sports of freestyle and freeskiing and comply with FIS regulations. Committee members must meet, at minimum, once a year to discuss programs and vote on amendments.
