We have endeavored to provide as much information about what these roles entail as possible to be a reference to those who have taken on these positions. Often, it is much more difficult to describe the duties and responsibilities of a role than it is to actually perform it, so please do not take the length of any of these descriptions as an indication of the complexity of the position.
Everyone doing their part and knowing what is expected of them makes being involved with this group a fun and exciting time as we help the kids to learn new skills and have a lot of fun!

Board of Directors
The local league Board of Directors, elected from and by the adult members of the league, is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the league within the rules, regulations and policies of Little League. This board does not have the authority to alter, suspend or change any of the rules, regulations or policies of Little League. However, wide latitude is given to this board in many areas of operation so that the local needs of the community may be met. For instance, the local league board of directors is entirely responsible for choosing a method for selection of Tournament Teams (or "All Stars").
Annually, the regular membership of each Little League is required to meet and elect the board of directors. Following the election, the board of directors meets to elect its officers from within the newly elected board. The officers required are: president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, player agent, safety officer and information officer.
The board may adopt such rules and regulations for the conduct of its meetings and the management of the league as it may deem proper. The board has the power to discipline, suspend or remove any director or officer or committee member of the league, subject to provisions of the local league constitution.
Members of the local league board of directors, particularly the officers, should not be involved as members of other boards when such membership may cause a conflict of interest.
