How do I become a board member?
Board members are nominated at our open meeting in November. Any voting member may be nominated to the board. A voting member is someone who is either a current Director, Official Coach, or a parent/guardian of current players in the league. Once nominated you must accept your nomination. At the banquets there will be ballots handed out to members in order to vote for the board members. You are elected to the board by majority vote and it is also dependent upon how many positions are available. Currently this year we have approx 12 positions available.

Is being a board member for me
Please consider this before you decide if joining the board is right for you, can you commit the time needed to be part of this organization. You should be able to count on about 5 hours a week of time during off periods and upwards of 15 hours of time during prep periods which occur right before seasons begin. Some jobs require a bit more time than others and some jobs require more manual work vs. office work. We look forward to hearing from you and hope that you can join our group and effort in making Monroe Soccer a great experience for kids.
