ATTENTION MEMBERS: Volunteers needed for our Observer Corps
Monitoring our local governments by attending their meetings in order to provide our members -- and the public -- with reports of the meetings is an invaluable service provided by the League. We are building up our Observer Corps, but we need your help! There are still many government meetings for which we have no observer.
If you are interested in attending and observing our local government meetings as a member of the Observer Corps, please do the following:
You may also email Becky with any questions you might have.
- Click here for the spreadsheet listing meetings through November of 2016.
- Add your name to the meeting for which you are able attend, observe and provide a report.
- Send an email to our Observer Director, Becky Lipton, at email@example.com to let her know which meetings you will be able to attend.
Thank you for your consideration!
