Board of Directors Election

UpdatedSunday July 18, 2021 byPottsgrove Little League.

Background

Annually a General Meeting is held in October to elect our Little League's Board of Directors for the upcoming year. Those Members in good standing are eligible to vote (consisting of anyone who has volunteered over the past year - coaches, assistant coaches, umpires, board members, team mom/dads, field maintenance, concession stand volunteers, etc). WE NEED YOUR HELP!

To run our Little League, we have 14 roles that need to be filled. Ideally we would have 1 board member per role, which promotes more effective execution of the role's responsibilities.

Currently we have 10 board members, several of whom also are coaches, and several of whom will be departing after this year. Therefore, we will have to back-fill departing roles in addition to adding board members to get us to where we need to be.

Board members are elected in October, take office effective Nov 1st, and serve until Oct 31st of the following year. 1-hour Meetings occur approximately once per month during the non-Spring seasons, and once every other week during the Spring season.

If would like to help, or see opportunities for improvement of the league (e.g. field maintenance, local rules, communication, etc), please consider volunteering for a board position for the upcoming year. 

The available board roles are the following:

  • President*
  • Vice President*
  • Secretary*
  • Treasurer*
  • Player Agent*
  • Safety Officer*
  • Coaching Coordinator*
  • Field Maintenance Coordinator
  • Fundraising Manager
  • Information Officer
  • Special Events Coordinator
  • Tournament Director
  • Umpire Coordinator
  • Volunteer Coordinator
    (* = role required by Little League)

For additional information, please reference the description of Little League Board of Director Roles.

In meantime, we will compile a list of nominees for the new board.

 

What you need to do:

  1. Nominate

    If you or anyone else is interested in serving on the board for the upcoming year, send a message to us at pgllbaseball@gmail.com to nominate them. Example message: I nominate NAME for the PGLL Board of Directors.

    Work from all the roles must be performed to run our Little League, and we'd like to avoid having board members serve multiple roles so they can focus on a single specific job. Therefore filling all the roles will help us be a more effective organization!

  2. Vote

    When voting occurs in October, vote!

 

If you have any questions about the roles or what is involved, please contact us at pgllbaseball@gmail.com.
