Understanding how our local governments work is BASIC to League effectiveness. A local League observer is the eyes and ears of the League. Observers learn how the governing bodies work and about issues that are, or may become, items for local study and action. Consistent League presence at these meetings adds to the League’s visibility and credibility.
The objective of the Observer Corps is to monitor governmental bodies for information of importance to the League and the community/state.
Being an observer can be interesting and fun. It puts the League on the inside, hearing decisions that will affect the community/state and the League.
