Like all Little Leagues, we operate thanks to dozens of volunteers who dedicate hundreds of hours each calendar year. We would like to provide information about the Board of Directors and ask you to consider running for the first time. We need more board members to keep operating for our children and community.

The board officially meets once per month immediately following the annual meeting. Board meetings typically last for 1.5 – 2 hours. In the months leading up to the start of the seasons we often need to hold ad hoc meetings to discuss preparation details. The amount of time board members spend working on league matters in between meetings depends on the position and individual motivation. Some positions have peaks during the year where a significant amount of time is required while others retain a more intense commitment the entire year.

We will have several empty positions highlighted below that need to be filled. Here is a list of the board positions our league currently includes and a brief description of the responsibilities. For some positions, we link directly to the official description on the Little League website. In some years, responsibilities can be combined.
