WE WANT YOU: Montgomery Baseball League Annual Board Elections
Montgomery Baseball League is an all-volunteer non-profit organization; we cannot operate without active participation from the community. As such, we are actively seeking volunteers to serve on our 2016 MBL Board of Directors.
We are seeking volunteers who are committed to the entire league - across all age groups - able 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 the investment of 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.
Of the 13 positions on the MBL Board of Directors, 12 are open to election every year (the role of “Past President” is not an electable position). 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. Each of those 12 electable Board positions is different, allowing you to contribute time in an area that interests you most. Positions include:
Descriptions of the roles and responsibilities of these positions can be found on the MBL web site under the "General Information" link (select “Board Positions” from the Categories drop-down list).

Recommended Parent Viewing: "Changing the Game in Youth Sports" TED Talk
Some key takeaways:
I hope you will take the time to watch the video and if you enjoy it, please share it. Share it with families that have children in youth sports. Share it with coaches, schools and organizations that are struggling to serve the needs and priorities of our kids in a youth sports world that sometimes does not allow our children to “Play” anymore. Share it with like minded people so that we all realize that we are the silent majority, and that youth sports can and will change. We have the power to change it the right way, and make it about our players first.
