Join one of the League Observer Teams – we need volunteers!

The League observer teams provide a regular public presence at important County meetings as well as provide information to the League regarding government transparency, opportunity for public participation in shaping policy and new developments in areas important to the League.

Team members attend the public meetings.   (The Board of County Commissioners meets on Tuesday mornings, the Board of Education meets every other Thursday with some evening meetings, and the Planning Commission meets the second Wednesday of the month in the evenings.)  Members file a short report, and describe their impressions to fellow team members and to the League Board. 

No experience necessary!  We will train you!
