About the Board
Members of the SNLL Executive Board preside over the needs of the league for a term of two years. A new term commences every September, following the election. Each board member volunteers their personal time to ensure fields are maintained, uniforms are purchased, vendors are managed, communications are published, registration is taken care of, rules are established, teams are created, managers and coaches are selected, and sponsorships are secured, etc.
The board formally meets each month throughout the year, and informally in subcommittees as needed.
Elections for new boards are held annually. There are 6 positions on the executive board level. Voting is by secret ballot and takes place prior to Closing Ceremonies at Washington Park, Jelcick field during the Snack Shack hours of operation. Please stop by and vote for the new board.
The SNLL Board generally meets on the 3rd Monday of every month starting at 7:00 PM. Once the season is under way, the meetings will move to every other Monday. On occasion, there will be additional special meetings on an ad hoc basis. For the monthly, regular meeting the first portion is dedicated to public comment and participation. If you'd like to participate during the public comment section, please contact our League Secretary.
Executive Board Positions
President - Apart from all other considerations, sound leadership, couched in knowledge, experience and common sense, is the greatest requirement and most exemplary qualification of the man or woman selected as president of a Little League.
While efficient organizational and administrative abilities are desirable credentials, the search for good leadership must transcend all other attributes in the adult who gives direction to the Little League movement in the local community. Dedication to the goals and purpose of Little League is inherent in the volunteer aspect of those who serve, but not everyone who serves is gifted with the quality of leadership.
Presidents must reflect these qualities if they are to be of benefit to children. The president has many responsibilities in the administration of the league. Each President is elected by, and is accountable to, the local league board of directors.
Duties of a president are described within the limits of the rules and regulations, and within the local league constitution, giving each president the ability to oversee the affairs of all elements of the league. As the chief administrator, the president selects and appoints managers, coaches, umpires and committees. As such, no person becomes a manager, coach, umpire or committee member without the approval of the president. However, all appointments are subject to final approval by the local league's board of directors.
Importantly, the president is the officer with whom Little League International maintains contact. The president also represents the league in the District organization. The president should be the most informed officer of the league. Each president must know the regulations under which Little League operates and in authorizing the annual application for charter, binds all members of the league to faithfully observe the regulations.
Little League Baseball International Headquarters reserves the right to require a league to remove any officer who does not carry out the terms of charter application. Serious violation can result in loss of the league's charter by action of the Charter Committee in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Beyond the requirements of league administration, the president should personify the best public image in reflection to the community at large. Each president should take an active role in gaining support and winning friends for the league program.
The president presides at league meetings, and assumes full responsibility for the operation of the local league. The president receives all mail, supplies and other communications from the Little League Headquarters. A president may manage, coach or umpire, provided he/she does not serve on the protest committee, nor serve as tournament team manager or coach.
Vice President - The vice president presides in the absence of the president, works with other officers and committee members, is ex-officio member of all committees, and carries out such duties and assignments as may be delegated by the president. Separate vice presidents may also be selected to oversee individual divisions within the league. If so, one vice president should be selected as the one to preside in the absence of the president. A vice president may manage, coach or umpire, provided they do not serve on the protest committee.
Secretary - The secretary maintains a register of members and directors, records the minutes of meetings, is responsible for sending out notice of meetings, issues membership cards and maintains a record of league's activities.
Treasurer - The treasurer signs checks co-signed by another officer or director (or as directed by the local league's constitution), dispenses league funds as approved by the board of directors, reports on the status of league funds, keeps local league books and financial records, prepares budgets, and assumes the responsibility for all local league finances.
Information Officer - The information officer manages the online registration process and ensures that league rosters are maintained on the site, ensures that league scores are updated on a regular basis, collects, posts and distributes important information on League activities including direct dissemination of sponsor activities to Little League International, district, public, league members and media, serves as primary contact person for Little League regarding optimizing use of the Internet for league administration and for distributing information to league members and to Little League International, and displays enthusiasm for using the Internet for league administration, for sharing information and for creating a more enjoyable and efficient Little League experience.
Umpire in Chief - The Umpire In Chief oversees the conduct of every league game in compliance with all rules and regulations and the recruiting, training and scheduling of league umpires. Responsibilities include: monitor and distribute rule changes mandated by Little League International, review and update local league rules and provide President recommended modifications, research and suggest competitive (umpire fees for minors only) for season, actively recruit umpires for baseball and softball divisions of the league, coordinate scheduling of training classes for umpire candidates.
Player Agent - The player agent conducts annual tryouts, is in charge of player selection, assists the president in checking birth records and eligibility of players and generally supervises and coordinates the transfer of players to or from the Minor Leagues according to provisions of the regulations of Little League Baseball. Separate player agents may also be selected to oversee individual divisions within the league. The player agent must not manage, coach or umpire in the division over which he/she has authority, unless the local league has received explicit written permission to allow this from Little League International.
