Soliciting Nominations to the CSMS League Board of Directors
Our CSMS League Board of Directors consists of 16 members. This number is fixed in the current league bylaws. Elected terms are for three years.
Due to resignations and expiring terms the League needs to nominate members to the Board and elect six (6) new members at our next General Meeting. Five of these positions will be 3-year terms, and the other will complete the final year of a term left open due to resignation.
Please take a moment to carefully consider who you think could improve our league by serving on the Board, and nominate them. Nominations should be sent to Secretary John Schmidt (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 10th. The Board will get approval from the nominees to have their names stand and an election will be held if there are more nominees than open positions.
No one expects a nominee to be Superman, but a good nominee will be at the least somewhat knowledgeable and passionate about the game we love and about our league. Some Board positions require a lot of time and commitment, but others require not too much more than attending a monthly meeting. Board members should have a positive attitude and the ability to collaborate.
Board members are elected ‘at-large’ after which the Board itself distributes/elects the various roles such as President. The roles are volunteer, but there is great payback in seeing 300 men enjoy upwards of 400 games of slo-pitch during a summer and knowing you had a hand in making that enjoyment, fellowship and exercise possible.
Who have you played ball with that could be a constructive and positive part of league leadership? Who on your team seems like ‘new blood’ that could bring good ideas to our league? Contact John.
