The Montgomery Baseball League is a 100% volunteer non-profit organization; we cannot operate without active participation from the community. As such, we are actively seeking volunteers to serve on the 2015 MBL Board of Directors.
We seek volunteers who are committed to the entire league - across all age groups - and can make decisions for the benefit of the entire program and not just a single age group or division. We look for members who can not only dedicate their time to the program, but who also have the ability to recruit other volunteers to work with them in their respective area. While being an active MBL Board member has a certain degree of responsibility, it is also a very rewarding experience and well worth your time.
Each year we seek to retain a number of our existing volunteers to ensure continuity in our program while at the same time attracting new board members to bring in new ideas and energy, and to represent our younger player generations. All Board positions are open for election each year (with the exception of the role of “Past President”) and we know that several existing board members will be retiring and not seeking re-election this year, so we encourage you to seriously consider joining the Board.
In addition to our existing 11 Board positions, for the 2015 season MBL will be increasing their Board positions to 13 as we will be adding two (2) additional Board positions to better increase community involvement. While those new roles are still being defined, they will be cross-functional positions with a primary focus on Special Events Planning and Player Registration & Retention (if needed additional details will be provided upon request).
There are 12 different Board position available and open to election that will allow you to contribute time in an area that interests you most. (As noted above the 2015 MBL Board will consist of 13 Board members including the “Past President” position)
